India A Hard Side To Beat At Home, Admits England Captain Eoin Morgan
Virat Kohli-led India completely owned England in the Test series and Eoin Morgan seems to have kept a note of it. Speaking to media on Sunday, the left-handed batsman said India is a strong side at home and to beat them, a bit more than usual needs to be done.
Further talking about the challenge in front of him Morgan said apart from anything, playing in India is itself a special experience and he is looking forward to it. Captain Morgan admitted despite playing a comparatively small series, a lot is there to be learnt from it.
“Yes, I am really looking forward to it. Playing against India in India is a special experience. (They) are a strong side and hard to beat at home. I think, that’s something we are looking forward to as a side (and) it’s going to be a challenge. It is only a short series, but we think we can learn a lot from it.”
After the English team landed in India a day back in Mumbai, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler were seen attending a ‘Net Session’ in the city, organised by HyperCity retail in association with Waitrose, England’s official sponsors in the series.
Jos Buttler, who was in the England squad that got thrashed by India 4-0 in the five-match series, said the 50-over format would be a lot different and there is much to expect from the visitors in colored jersey.
“Little bit, yes obviously. Good to play before Christmas, we got used to conditions and stuff. But the ODI matches will be completely different. We have got a different side but every time you come, you have to re-adjust and get ready for the matches accordingly.”
Prior to the ODI series which starts on January 15, England will play two practice games, on January 10 and 12 in Mumbai. Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will captain India A in the first game while Mumbaikar Ajinkya Rahane will lead in the second one.
As MSD stepped down from the captaincy last week, Virat Kohli has been handed the baton to lead India across all three formats.
