Monty Panesar praises India

India has the accomplished duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in their crew as the two primary spinners. Both demonstrated amazing success in
Australian conditions a couple of months prior. Further, Axar Patel, who unleashed destruction during his presentation Test arrangement against England at home, and Washington Sundar are the other spin alternatives for Team India.
A Twitter user couldn’t help contradicting Monty Panesar’s claim and composed:
“It is not easy at all for India in seaming conditions, 5-0 with England that is a big joke.”
The 39-year-old likewise supported the Indian seamers to do well against an amateur England top-order lineup. As indicated by Monty Panesar, England are vigorously subject to their captain Joe Root to score runs.
Reacting to a tweet on the India-England arrangement, Monty Panesar believes:
“If Joe Root scores large England win. But, you anticipate that Joe Root should score all the runs? India has seamers to exploit inexperienced English batting. The top order will be England’s issue” he said.
