India vs England

IND vs ENG: A five-match Test series is to be played between India and England. The first match of this series will be played from January 25. The England team has already announced its squad for the series. However, Team India is yet to be announced. Meanwhile, English players have already started making excuses regarding Indian pitches. England’s wicketkeeper batsman Jonny Bairstow has recently given a big statement regarding Indian pitches.

What did Jonny Bairstow say?

Jonny Bairstow believes that if India prepares turning wickets for the five-Test series starting later this month, it will reduce the strength of its fast bowling attack. When England toured India in 2021, they suffered a 1-3 defeat on pitches suited for spinners. England’s batsmen were then unable to face the spin balls of Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel. Even today the English team has not been able to forget that defeat.

Bairstow told Sky Sports that India can prepare different types of pitches. Even pitches that don’t have turn. We all have seen how strong his fast bowling has been recently. He said that I am sure that he will produce turning wickets. It cannot be said whether he will take turn from the first day or not, because this will reduce the strength of his fast bowling attack. We all know how strong his fast bowling is. He further said that he does not want to think too much about the challenge of spin bowlers in India. Certainly last time Akshar and Ashwin had performed brilliantly. We forget that our batsmen performed very well in the first Test match. Joe Root had scored a double century in the first Test match in Chennai and after that the circumstances changed completely.

Bairstow spoke only on spin bowlers

During this entire interview, Bairstow has talked only about Indian spin bowlers. He said that we know that they have skilled spinners, especially in India it is not easy to face them. We know they are going to challenge us. Whether Akshar plays or not or Ravindra Jadeja or Kuldeep Yadav plays, who knows. We will have to wait. There is no point in thinking too much about it before their team is announced and the circumstances are known. The first test match between India and England will be played in Hyderabad.
