Australian legend Glenn McGrath has said that pace bowlers will be the key for India in England. McGrath is currently coaching in the MRF Pace Academy. He is hopeful that the Indian pacers will exploit the conditions in England well. He has also backed the current Indian captain MS Dhoni.

He said, “The Indian pacemen will be bowling with the Duke ball. The seam is larger and the ball does more; it reverses too. I personally enjoyed operating with the Duke ball. You have to pitch it up a little more. I found that the surfaces for the Tests had some bounce too. The pitches for the county games were slow.”

On Dhoni, he added, “I have a lot of respect for him and the things he has done with the Indian team. I am surprised at people calling for his head.”

He added, “It is the pacemen who will win you matches in England. The Indian bowlers have been playing too much T20 cricket lately, which brings with it some negatives. Now, they need to get back their rhythm and action for the longer format, which they can do during the side games.”
