Jonny Bairstow should make England return to ease burden on Joe Root | Ebony Rainford-BrentEbony Rainford-Brenton February 21, 2021 at 8:00 am on February 21, 2021 at 8:00 am on February 21, 2021 at 8:00 am Sportblog | The Guardian

England are too reliant on their captain so I would bring in Bairstow at No 3 for the third Test against India

England are in Ahmedabad with the series tied at 1-1 with two to play and a day-night Test to come that might favour their seamers – we don’t know how the pink ball will react to the floodlights, but if anyone’s going to get it moving it’s Jimmy Anderson. It will also get soft quicker and tends to go dead after 20 overs, which means Ravi Ashwin should get less bounce, rag and spin and the batsmen get a fraction more time to react to it.

If England’s seamers benefit from conditions Jasprit Bumrah will as well, but some of the advantages India had in the second Test might be nullified.
