Kohli in the last test test match with England brought an off break spinner Hanuma VIhari, an allrounder capable of scoring good runs. Recently India has been criticised for the poor selection of test players. Ashwin has been replaced with Vihari. Test conditions in England are unpredictable but the change will not cost India this match.

Which of the following strengthens the argument?


A) Hanuma Vihari has taken 10 runs and 3 wickets and is capable of changing Kohli’s cricketing mind
B) A change in test pitch that could effect the conditions suitable for a good match is required
C) A debutant player in England has helped the team win the match several years ago
D) The pitch does have rough pockets
E) The search of a comprehensive player ignites confidence in the team

I struggled with this question quite a bit, especially the array of details and cricket terms made it very tricky.

In the end I tried to boil it down to "A new player won´t hurt the team". After having this respective statement identified as the main argument, I felt like clear choice in terms of strenghtening was E.

Yeah, too many details. i frequently had to read the the conclusion so that I dont stray out of scope of the argument, but POE helped.
Although struggled with A, could not figure if it was a good or a bad performance. I eventually settled for a bad performance.
I'll go with E.
