Former England cricket team coach David Lloyd believes that Ben Stokes and Co. are playing on Yashasvi Jaiswal's ego to drop the in-form youngster in the third Test against India starting on Thursday in Rajkot. Is. Jaiswal looked in tremendous form in the first two Test matches and led his team to victory by scoring a historic double century in Visakhapatnam. Lloyd believes that although there are no obvious weaknesses when it comes to Jaiswal's batting, England should target the left-handed batsman with an off-spinner and force him to hit a big shot. Can go to the fielder for a catch.

“Jaiswal is a strong player but he doesn't have any obvious weaknesses, so I would think a little bit outside the box and instead of bowling a left-arm spinner against him with the new ball, I would like to be consistent.” Off spinner, tempting in the deep. “I would like to see England play on Jaiswal's ego a little more,” Lloyd wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.

“In subcontinent conditions you need to have your catchers around the bat, but you also need one or two fielders in strategic positions where they like to hit the ball,” he said.

Lloyd also mentioned the trap that Stokes took to dismiss Shreyas Iyer during the second Test match. England lined up two fielders at deep mid-off and deep midwicket to induce a lofted shot from Iyer and the batsman gifted his wicket by taking a catch in the same area.

“Give him a big blow by posting deep midwicket and deep midoff, but at two-thirds instead of going back to the boundary line. Remember the trap Stokes laid for Shreyas Iyer in the second Test, when the England captain ran “Rope to make a very good overhead catch.” Lloyd explained.
