In the five-match Test series against England, Side India is currently ahead 1-0, and by winning the Leeds Test, the Indian team hopes to establish a dominant 2-0 lead in the series. Team India will take on England with renewed energy at Headingley in Leeds after winning the Lord’s Test match.
After winning the second test match by 151 runs, Team India will want to keep the winning trend going. Now, former Indian cricketer Dilip Vengsarkar has spoken on what Team India needs do in order to win in Leeds.
Everything will not be simple for India in England, according to Vengsarkar, but he is the team’s favourite to win the series. He believes that India has a fantastic chance to win the Test series on home soil in England. India is currently leading 1-0, indicating that Virat’s army is still in command.
Team India will no longer be able to afford to take anything for granted. Our batters, particularly those in the middle order, must score a lot of runs. In order to defeat England, India will need to achieve a large total. During an interview with The Times of India, Vengsarkar mentioned these remarks.
Strategy From Monty Panesar
Former England cricketer Monty Panesar, on the other side, believes that India can take a 2-0 lead in the Leeds Test if Joe Root is out early. Root is in excellent form at the moment, having scored 386 runs in four innings of two Test matches, including two hundreds.
While Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow’s home ground is Handingley, Panesar informed The Times of India that they will experience several difficulties here.
If Team India’s bowlers continue to bowl as well as they have in the last two matches, they will win the series. India are the clear favourites to win the Headingley Test, but they’ll need to get rid of Joe Root quickly.
Virat Kohli With Same Aggression
Monty Panesar went on to say that Siraj makes a major difference for England. In this Test series, NS. Siraj has made life difficult for England’s batters. The batsmen in England are unable to read Siraj’s bowling effectively. India has played six Test matches at Headingley so far, winning two, losing three, and drawing one.
At the same time, Panesar stated, “I am once again certain that Indian captain Virat Kohli would play with the same aggression in the third Test match.”
