India’s tour of England has taken a turn towards the Test Series between the giants of the Red ball cricket. In this tour, India has done an average job by winning the T20 series 2-0 but losing the ODI series by 2-1. For this Test series, every individual has a different perspective so why not listen up to “the Wall” of India.
Former Indian Test Captain Rahul Dravid has a prediction to make on the ongoing Test Series between India and England. Rahul Dravid has won the last Test series in England, and according to Rahul, Virat will join him in this list by winning the Test series. Rahul Dravid said, I think Indian team has a great chance in England and Pacers will play their role to take 20 wickets. There is no doubt that our batsmen will score runs but the role of pacers are crucial. If I recall the days of 2007 Series win in England, then we use our same bowling line in all the Test matches, and no bowler got injured which made the difference.
At the time of predicting the series, Rahul said, I think India will win it by 2-1. India has already lost Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah where Bhuvneshwar will not be able to play in the first three matches while Jasprit Bumrah will not be available for the first Test due to injuries.
If we talk about the previous meetings of India and England in the English atmosphere than India had won the last Test Series in 2007 under Dravid’s captaincy while we have lost 2011 and 2014 Test series under MS Dhoni’s captaincy. It is a good chance for Virat Kohli to stand out in a more prominent list after winning the Test series with a decent Indian team. It will be a tough test for him as a Test Captain of India.
