Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal believes Team India will emerge victorious in the upcoming 5-game test series England. The first test of the series starts on August 4th, Wednesday, at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
Predictions poured in from all over the world before the series started. In the most recent of its kind, Yuzvendra Chahal stated that the team led by Virat Kohli will have the upper hand when it comes to the first series of the World Test Championship (WTC) cycle 2021-23.
“This series is going to be so exciting. I see India as the favorite to win the series. We are confident after beating Australia in our own backyard. I am sure that Virat Bhaiya India will lead to a series victory in England,“Yuzvendra Chahal was quoted as saying to TOI.
“Whether it’s batting, bowling or fielding, we’ve ticked all the boxes. We have batsmen who can take the game away from the opponent at any time and in any situation. We have bowlers who can make breakthroughs at any time.
“We have Virat Bhaiya, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Bhaiya and Rishabh who are in great shape. At bowling we have Bumrah, Shami Bhaiya and Ishant Bhaiya. Ashwin and Jadeja are also there. So we have a strong team to win the series in England“, Calculated the leg spinner.
Yuzvendra Chahal works on his hitting skills every day
Given the fact that India has a long tail, in most cases team management cannot come up with a balanced squad. To remedy this predicament, Indian bowlers have worked on their strokes to add important runs on the scoreboard. Yuzvendra Chahal shared the same thoughts and was of the opinion that a situation can arise at any time in which the bowlers have to contribute with the racket.
“I’m working on my loft. I’ve hit the nets. Whether fast bowlers or spinners, we all hit the nets because we have to score runs for the team in certain situations. I prepare myself for such situations. Aside from bowling, I take time every day to hit the nets“Revealed Chahal.
India last won a test series in England in 2007. Hence, the upcoming tour is of the utmost importance for the Indian side, which aims to establish itself as one of the greatest teams of all time.
