During the fourth Test, Michael Vaughan gives a harsh assessment of India and England’s batting.

After scoring only 205 in their first innings, England mounted a comeback on day two of their fourth Test in India.

After 16 wickets fell in the first five sessions of the fourth Test between India and England, Michael Vaughan described the batting performance as “terrible.” After an England fightback led by Jimmy Anderson, Ben Stokes, and Jack Leach, India went in at tea on day two with a score of 153-6. They were 52 runs down at the time.

While the pitch suggests there is enough of room for the bowlers, the Ahmedabad surface does not appear to be deteriorating as quickly as it did in the third Test, and both sides’ batting has been called into question.

That includes Vaughan, the former England and Ashes-winning captain, who was less than impressed and called it appalling.

Vaughan believes that whomever can put up a 50-run partnership in the last Test of the series, which India presently leads 2-1, will have the upper hand. As England recovered in their first innings, Stokes and Jonny Bairstow put on the biggest partnership of the Test so far at 48.

Vaughan wrote, “The bowling in this Test match has been high high quality.” “This Test match’s batting has been really shocking.

“We’re already at the point where whomever can reach a 50 partnership might win the game!! Yes, it’s a 50/50 joint venture.”

The tour’s conditions have gotten a lot of attention. Prior to the fourth Test, England had not scored more than 200 runs in any of their previous five innings, with the exception of their first innings in Chennai, where they scored a massive 578.

Monty Panesar, a former England spinner, recently talked exclusively to Express Sport on the surface, saying, “I think what it comes down to is that India have to bat effectively to defend the pitch.”

“India didn’t bat well either; it was only in the final innings that they were able to easily chase down 40-plus runs and win the game.

“India batted well in the second Test match when the pitch was turning. They were more diligent in their efforts.

“So if India can apply themselves on these spinning wickets, and the bosses, the ICC, argue that we can manufacture turning pitches and India can score runs on them, there is no dispute because they can prove that yes, you can score runs.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
