new Delhi: England veteran off-spinner Graeme Swann believes that India will win the Test series against England starting next month. Swan said that the current Indian team is very strong and it is not easy to defeat them.
‘India will win 2-1’
Graeme Swann said that the 4-match Test series will be won by the Indian team 2-1. Swan said in an interview to The Times of India, ‘I think India will win this series 2-1. England can win a match because of Root’s batting, but I think the Indian team will prove to be very strong. I hope that this claim of mine is false.
Weight gain is bigger than ashes
Graeme Swann said that winning the Test series in India is more difficult than winning the series in Australia. He said, ‘Going to Australia and winning the Test is the most difficult, but coming into India and playing against Indian spinners is the real challenge. I believe that winning the Test series in England for India will be a big achievement from the Ashes.
England is very much dependent on the route
Graeme Swann says that England’s batting order depends too much on captain Joe Root. He said, ‘England is very much dependent on captain Joe Root in terms of scoring runs. If England could score more runs in the first innings and then they controlled India, then they might have a chance to win.
