Monty Panesar warns England
After this statement of English team coach Chris Silverwood, now former England spinner Monty Panesar has given his reaction while talking to an English newspaper. Monty Panesar warned the England team that if you mess with Team India on the cricket field, then its players will not leave you.
Screwing Virat Kohli is like setting your house on fire
Panesar said, ‘Virat can never tolerate that any player of his team should be robbed or pulled up. England started doing the same, but it turned out to be like setting a house on fire for them and the whole credit goes to Virat Kohli. The England team was in complete panic from the Indian team.
England shocked at the loss to India
Most of the players of India and England were seen engaging with each other in the second test match played at Lord’s. On the fifth day of the Test match, England fast bowler Mark Wood was attacking Jasprit Bumrah’s body with dangerous bouncer balls. Bumrah hit the ball twice on the head. After this, England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler was also calling Jasprit Bumrah good and bad.
England’s action ignited the fire of victory in India
Kohli was watching this incident while sitting in the balcony of Lord’s. Kohli looked very angry with this. This incident heated up the whole atmosphere and ignited the fire of victory inside Team India. Shami (56 not out off 70 balls) and Bumrah (34 not out off 64 balls) put England out of the match with a partnership of 89 runs for the 9th wicket. Kohli said, ‘This tension on the field really inspired us to win and finish the game early.’ After this, India gave England a target of 272 runs in 60 overs. Siraj, Bumrah, Shami and Ishant together bundled England for 120 runs to give India victory at the historic ground of Lord’s.
English coach threatens Virat and Co.
After losing badly to India, English team coach Chris Silverwood threatened Virat and Co, saying, ‘If our players come to fight, then they will not back down. The one thing we are not afraid of is fighting. Silverwood said, ‘At Lord’s they pushed us back and now we also pushed them and that makes the Test match even better.’
If you mess with Team India, its players will not leave
Monty Panesar said, ‘I believe that whatever happened, it must have come from England coach Chris Silverwood. It would be his idea to target India’s No. 9 and 10 batsmen. Panesar said, ‘It would be the idea of England coach Chris Silverwood to break Shami and Bumrah by hitting them with bouncers. After this, India thought it was okay, then if you fall behind one of our players, then we will all fall behind you together. Whatever trick India did, it worked for her. England felt that they would dominate the Indian team and started bullying Jasprit Bumrah who is the No. 10 player.
England players were not aware of Virat Kohli
Panesar said, ‘The England team and its coach Chris Silverwood were not well aware of what kind of person Virat Kohli was. He was steaming everything well and then he made such a comeback against the England team. Virat Kohli is such a person who never forgives.
Virat Kohli cannot tolerate this at all
Panesar said, ‘When Rishabh Pant got out on the fifth day of the Lord’s Test match, England thought that they would send Shami and Bumrah back after getting them out easily. Here everything backfired for England. You can’t mess with the Indian team. Virat Kohli does not tolerate harassing and pulling any player of his team at all. This makes them come back stronger against you only.
