Indian bowlers will struggle to bowl out England twice in the upcoming Test series, says former Indian skipper Dilip Vengsarkar. He added that the young bowling attack led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma will face a tough time in the coming months in England, he said.

Mohammad Shami, Varun Aaron and Ravichandran Ashwin are the other 3 bowlers in the line up but Vengsarkar is not very positive about their performance and the the impact they can cause . He added that in a team having 4 bowlers , there must be 2 bowlers who can pick 10 wickets in the match and India don’t seem to have any.

“But you never know in cricket, anything can happen. I hope India does well. But England team is very good in England. After a long time we are playing a five Test match series, I hope we do well, that is important for us,” he said.

He also showed his concerns over the fact that there are only 2 practice matches . He added that the first 2 Test matches will be more difficult as the conditions will be alien to them. He said that atleast 4 -5 practice matches should have been arranged.

Ajit Agarkar, who was also present there , said that 5 Test series will not be an easy one but the fact that England are also rebuilding , is a positive for India. Our batsman have done well in couple of away tours, in England and South Africa, will help the team.

According to Dilip Vengsarkar, the key to this tour for India will be adapting to new conditions as this will be the first tour of England for many members. Also they will be touring in the first half of the summer and the conditions will help the pace bowling a bit more than usual.

Also, he raised questions over Duncan Fletcher and said that Indian coaches are better option. Bangar and Raman have done well in the IPL< he added.
