Inzamam commented on Team India
Due to incessant rain on the fifth and last day of the first test match, not a single ball could be bowled and the match ended in a draw. Team India’s captain Virat Kohli’s anger also erupted when the match was drawn, but former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq’s comment on Team India won the hearts of Indian fans.
Team India brought England on the back foot
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said in his YouTube video, ‘Team India has set the rhythm for the series with its fast bowling on the first day. Team India immediately brought England on the back foot. The bowlers from the subcontinent often find it difficult in the first Test, as the bowling conditions in England are completely different. Team India’s bowlers demoralized England’s batting.
Never seen such line-up of Indian fast bowling
In the first Test match, India’s fast bowlers Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj all performed well. Jasprit Bumrah took 9 wickets in the match, while Mohammed Shami and Siraj also appeared in excellent rhythm. Inzamam-ul-Haq said in his YouTube video, ‘Jasprit Bumrah has suffocated the English batsmen. Other fast bowlers like Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj also performed well. I have never seen such an Indian fast bowling line-up.
India has aggressive fast bowlers
Inzamam-ul-Haq said, ‘Team India has produced very good fast bowlers in the past too, but the current Indian fast bowlers have the same aggression as real fast bowlers. When you have aggressive fast bowlers, this kind of performance is bound to come.
