New Delhi: Despite being in a strong position in the first Test match being played against England in Nottingham, Team India was defeated in the swing of James Anderson. On the second day of the first Test match, Team India’s top order was destroyed by Anderson. Batsmen like Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara lost their breath in front of Anderson’s swing. India’s score is 125 runs at the loss of 4 wickets.
It is more difficult to score runs in England
Sunil Gavaskar has told in an interview to IANS why it is more difficult for Indian batsmen to score runs in England than in Australia. Indian batsmen are unable to play the moving ball on the English wicket.
Gavaskar told the weakness of Team India
Gavaskar said, ‘It is not easy for anyone to play fast bowling in England, not even for the English batsmen. Coming close to the body and playing the ball as late as possible makes a difference in the score.
Better chance for India to win Test series in England
Gavaskar said, ‘This time there is a better chance for India to win the Test series in England. The England team does not currently have players like Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes and their batting order is a bit weak except captain Joe Root, so India have a better chance this time.
Gavaskar made this prediction
Gavaskar said, ‘This team India can beat England in the Test series in England. I believe that if the sun comes out in most of the matches, Team India will beat England 4-0 in the Test series. If the weather remains overcast, then Team India will still win the Test series by 3-1.
Big statement on Pujara and Rahane
Gavaskar was asked what advice he would give to batsmen like Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who lose their wickets while batting technically perfect. To this, Gavaskar said, ‘Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have a batting coach, so if they need advice, they should go to him.’
