Mumbai: Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir said that the kind of spin attack England has done, they do not think that their (England) team will win a single match in the four-match Test series against India. England have included spinners like Moeen Ali, Dom Bess and Jack Leach in their squad. The veteran Moin has taken 181 wickets in 60 Tests, while Bess and Leach have played 12–12 Tests. Bess has taken 31 and Leach has taken 44 wickets.
Gambhir said in the Star Sports program ‘Game Plan’ that the kind of spin attack given to England, I do not think his team will win a single Test match. Gambhir said that Team India would win the series 3–0 or 3–1. He said that I think England will have a 50% chance of winning the match given the circumstances in the Test match played day and night. Gambhir said that England captain Joe Root, who has bowled well in Sri Lanka, will face a variety of challenges in India. In Sri Lanka, England won 2–0.
Gambhir further said that it will be a completely different challenge for a player like Joe Root. He said yes, he played really well in Sri Lanka, but when you face any wicket or bowler like Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, it will be very different. That too when his confidence has skyrocketed after a great performance in Australia, I am sure it will be a different challenge.
