By Khurram Habib Ahmedabad, March 3 : England, who are keeping their cards close to the chest, may field off-spinner Dom Bess if the pitch for the fourth and final Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium here looks like offering help to spin bowlers. The team will be announced at the time of the toss by skipper Joe Root, who on Wednesday said that the team has done well despite inexperience.
Bess, 23, was dropped after the first Test and replaced by Moeen Ali as part of their rotation policy and also because he didn’t bowl well enough in the spin-friendly conditions of the second Test in Chennai. This could be his second Test of the series.
“It was certainly a tough pill to swallow. I didn’t see it round the corner. I didn’t think I needed it but, as time went on, it was probably the best option,” he said.
Bess said that the break has helped him get refreshed.
“I do think a lot about the game. I’m always trying to get better, whether thinking about it or doing it physically. So, the hardest part for me was getting away from it and I guess the management did it for me. It has freshened me up. I’ve thought about things and then had time to work on it,” added the off-break bowler.
Bess is one of the many youngsters England have in their team. Most of them have been caught surprised by the testing conditions in India.
