Indian cricket team Lords took a 1-0 lead in defeating a series of 151 runs against England in the second Test. Indian fast bowlers played an important role in this historic victory. Former English captain Michael Vaughan believes that it will not be easy to stop the Indian team after the victory at Lord’s and now England cannot be expected to return in the series.
It will not be easy for England to return now – Vaughan
According to India Today, Vaughan told the BBC that England had done the job of boosting the spirit of the Indian team.
He added, “England have prodded them. They have fired them up. It will take a very good England team to come back from here – and I don’t think they will. It’s going to be a long three Test matches from here,”
Apart from this, Vaughan has also raised questions on England’s strategy.
Questioning England’s strategy, Vaughan said that under pressure you should have kept things simple.
He said, “Jasprit Bumrah had more fielders on the boundary than Rishabh Pant. How can that happen when you’ve got players like Joe Root and James Anderson who have played over 100 Test matches? They got the tactics completely wrong.”
During the Lord’s Test, there was a constant confrontation between the players of both teams. A war of words ensued between James Anderson and Virat Kohli. On the last day of the match, this quarrel was seen quite a lot.
Jasprit Bumrah was constantly upset by the remarks of the English players during the batting. After this, during the batting of England, the entire Indian team continued the conversation and continuously put pressure on the English batsmen.
