Mark Wood replaces Ollie Robinson for final Test match between India-England in Dharamsala

| @indiablooms | 06 Mar 2024, 04:26 pm

England replaced Ollie Robinson with pacer Mark Wood, marking the only change in the British lineup which will face India in the fifth Test in Dharamsala.

The rest of the squad remained the same as featured in the Ranchi Test.

England will feature two pacers and two spinner and Joe Root as an alternative option when they take on the hosts in the final match of the series.

The fate of the series has already been decided with India bagging it 3-1.

The last match remains a fight for pride for the English team.

The two-time finalists, India, have ascended to the pole position in the ICC World Test Championship standings as New Zealand slipped to No. 2 following their Wellington defeat to Australia.

Before the start of the Wellington Test, New Zealand were sitting at the top of the table with 36 points in four games and a points percentage of 75.

Following their massive 172-run defeat, the 2021 WTC champions lost the top spot, slipping to the No. 2 position with a points percentage of 60.

India, who were at No. 2 with 62 points in 8 matches, replaced them at the top with a stronger points percentage of 64.58.
