Does India Have the Team to Win The Test Series

WAGs for England Tests

WAGs for England Tests

India have not won a Test series since 2007 when the Rahul Dravid-led side triumphed 1-0 a three-match series.

In an interview to the Daily Telegraph, Ishant said: "Everybody used to say that India can't produce fast bowlers".

However, the England batsmen seemed to have countered his threat in the following ODIs.

The former skipper lavished praise on Yadav and said he should be picked on form. Of course, it's always nice to have the full playing XI.

When the Indian captain was asked about his personal goals for the tour, he had replied, "It doesn't matter whether I get runs or don't". After pocketing the T20 series and winning the first 50-over encounter convincingly, Virat Kohli and Co. slumped to heavy back-to-back reversals to lose their grip on the three-match rubber. Anderson, who has spent several weeks recuperating from a shoulder problem, acknowledged that point and said that Kohli would by now be better equipped. Just because you don't have certain key players doesn't mean that you will have a certain kind of result.

"(But) He has had the white-ball internationals to get ready for the Test series.

Origi was a Brendan Rodgers signing and only found the net six times while on loan at Wolfsburg last season. "It is not allowed to think for one second it will be a little bit easier".

"A mystery spinner creates doubts if you haven't faced much of him, and it makes for great cricket when the batsmen are trying to figure out from 18-22 yards, which way it will go". Even as India were getting thrashed in 2011 and 2014 the seam bowlers - Parveen Kumar and Ishant Sharma on the first occasion and Ishant and Bhuvneshwar Kumar the second time around - provided the silver lining again getting virtually no help from the spinners.

"All of a sudden, he won't have four men at the boundary".

Anderson opined that Kohli would have little trouble switching from limited overs cricket to the Test game.

Stewart is also hopeful that India will perform better this time as likes of Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma have all played county in the past two seasons, which will keep them in good stead. They do not appear to have the potential wicket-takers with the new ball. Now Kuldeep's wrist action is a complex one and once he lands the ball, I don't think too many batsmen in world cricket have got the ability to tackle him off the pitch.

But Tendulkar, the world's leading run-scorer in both tests and one-day internationals, believes Kuldeep, who has played both his tests in the subcontinent, can bounce back. They are not only a team of fighters, but of quality as well. Talking about the initial part of his career, Ishant said, "I was not the one who really believed in training".
