Former England skipper David Gower has heaped praises on Virat Kohli’s Test team and believes they have the attitude of scaling new heights in Test cricket. Gower believes this Indian team is fearless and isn’t afraid of being in England.
Currently, the Indian Test team is touring England for the five-match Test series, starting from Wednesday in Nottingham. Several experts are calling it the best chance for the Indian team to win a Test series on English soil.
David Gower also believes the same. He said former Indian teams had several exceptional players but weren’t as good as this team collectively.
“Any Test series between India and England is always very very special. And what has changed over the years whenever India has come to England, something which is very obvious is that the fight they show. There were some great performances by some individuals, especially someone like Sunil Gavaskar who used to score all over the world,” Gower told News18.
“But there were times when England would try to play home advantage for many players. Nowadays, this Indian team under Virat Kohli is not worried about being in England. The weather is now hot and dry but yes the big difference (with this Indian team, compared to others is) in terms of attitude.”
He mentioned the current Indian bowling line-up is the best.
“Yes, you are right that this current line-up of Indian pacer is best where you have got so many options. Look at this attack, they are very very good and will enjoy bowling with the Dukes balls in these conditions,” the former batsman further added.
Team India is in good form coming into the Test series against England. Despite losing the last three Test tours in England, India are considered as the best touring side right now.
