Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly reckons India can chase 300 in the fourth innings of the ongoing fourth Test match at Ageas Bowl, Southampton. In fact, the Prince of Kolkata believes there is the ability in the Indian batting to pull off the miracle.

However, Indian batsmen will have to show the application to chase down the target. Thus, they will have to bat out of their skin to chase down the runs.

Meanwhile, a good opening partnership and Virat Kohli will hold the key to India’s chase. Furthermore, Chetheshwar Pujara who scored an unbeaten 132 in the first innings will be pivotal to the run-chase. Thus, it will have to be a collective effort from the Indian team if they need to get close to England’s lead.

On the other hand, India has chased more than 200 runs in the fourth innings while playing outside the Asian conditions on only three occasions. Therefore, it is going to be a hard job for the Indian batsmen.

In fact, the visitors will have to take the remaining two England wickets before they can think of chasing down the target. Meanwhile, a strong middle order performance has put England in the driver’s seat. Jos Buttler continued his dream form going whereas Sam Curran scored another 37 to be the thorn for India.

On the other hand, Mohammad Shami was the most impressive Indian bowler as he scalped three wickets. Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin looked toothless as he didn’t get the balls in the right areas.

Sourav Ganguly took to Twitter to share his thoughts. Ganguly post read as, “Don’t rule india out chasing 300 ..there is too much ability in that side @BCCI @SonySix @sonypicsprodns”.
