Saba Karim has said that the fifth Test between Team India and England is going to be a battle between two contrasting mindsets. However, this is the final match of the five-match series, which was postponed last year due to COVID-19, and it will be played at Edgbaston from July 1. Notably, both sides have now new captains and coaches at the helm, which will add another dimension to the game as well.

While previewing the game on India News, Saba Karim said: “I feel this match will decide how you should play Test cricket going forward. It is not only going to be a Test match between India and England but it is going to be a battle between two mindsets. If you see the England team on one side, they have made it clear that they are not going to take a step back. Brendon McCullum has said it loudly that if there is danger in front of you, then you should take it head-on, you don’t have to run away from it.”

However, the England team under the leadership of Ben Stokes chased down fourth-innings targets of more than 275 runs in the first two Tests of the ongoing series against New Zealand as well. Saba Karim also stated that Rohit Sharma’s side will have a different approach.

“On the other hand, the Indian team, if we see the combination of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid, it seems they will go to the ground with a balanced approach, they will be watchful and do a controlled attack. As I said before, this will decide whether you should always play attractive cricket so that the spectators who come to watch the match are entertained, the way England have done and shown, or the Indian team who entertain but their approach to providing entertainment is different,” Saba Karim concluded.
