Nasser Hussain, the former captain, has warned team England about complacency before the fourth Test of the series against India. The Test will be played on Thursday at The Oval.
England jumped back from the Lord’s defeat and registered an emphatic win by an innings.
Nasser Hussain is very well aware of team India’s capability to fight back. Earlier in the year, India’s amazing triumph Australia was an example of their fighting spirit. Hence, Hussain has urged England not to take tier foot off the pedal at any cost.
“At Headingley, England swung the ball around corners. Skilful as India’s seam bowlers are, they did not swing the ball at all. But the last thing England must do now thinks they have done the hard work and write India off ahead of Thursday’s fourth Test in south London and the final match at Old Trafford — grounds which should suit their attack better. Remember, they were bowled out for 36 by Australia in Adelaide late last year but came back to pull off a famous series win. And after Kohli had gone home, too,” Hussain wrote for The Telegraph.
Hussain commented on Virat Kohli’s attitude of never say die rubs onto the team that makes India so dangerous in a situation. Especially when they are itching to make a strong comeback.
Hussain added, “India does have a lot of strength of character and fight, and central to that is their captain, even though Kohli has looked more like the 2014 version rather than the one who conquered English conditions and England’s attack in 2018.”
