Why Indian batsmen need not fear about Test series against England: Sunil Gavaskar

After losing the ICC World Test Championship title, Team India now have to play a five-match Test series against England. The first Test match of the series will begin on August 4. Following the embarrassing performance of Indian batsmen at the WTC, there have been reports of major restructuring in the squad. Team India will have the big responsibility of proving itself before batsmen in English conditions. However, crossing balls hanging in the air by James Anderson and Stuart Broad is a big challenge for Indian batsmen. Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has advised batsmen not to fear in the Test series. Explaining the reason behind this, he said the pitch would be better for batting in Test matches.

In his column for The Telegraph, Gavaskar said, ‘Indian batsmen need not worry too much about the Test series against England. August-September is sunny in England so that the pitch dries up and with all due respect, if James Anderson and Stuart Broad fail to get a wicket in their first spell, they will fight in the next spell. India has had a disappointing start to the English summer but despair fuels the resolve, when fortunes change and the talent that a talented team has to build to make it an Indian summer.

The record of the Indian team in the long format of cricket is quite disappointing in England. The team, led by Virat Kohli, suffered a 4-1 defeat in the five-match Test series on the 2018 tour. At the same time, in 2014, the team suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the English team. Team India recently defeated England 3-1 in the home Test series and the team wants to do something similar at their home.
