Indian batsman Hanuma Vihara, who is very familiar with the situation after playing county cricket in England, believes that England’s batsmen should be absolutely sure of the shot selection. Duke Ball is also a challenge for the team’s batsmen in the English conditions. Hanuma Vihari went to England this year to play county cricket after he was not sold in the IPL.

The Indian batsman shared his experience of playing against a fast bowler like England’s Stuart Broad and with the Duke ball, ‘In India you can escape with little push or drive ball. Get away with the ball by driving up to the top you can get. If I had to play that ball a second time, I might try to play it late. Duke deliveries can also be a challenge in England. Batting is easier when the sun is out, but if the weather is wet and cloudy, the ball will swing throughout the day. I got this challenge early on in county cricket. There is a lot of cold here, so the ball gets a lot of help from the pitch.
