Virender Sehwag predicts India can win the 4th Test within four days
Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag says India are hungry to win the 4th Test and level the series. Virat Kohli and his troops sealed a 203-run win in the third Test match. The hosts still have a lead of 2-1 going into the 4th Test.
During a chat show ‘Cricket Ki Baat’, cricket analyst Sehwag said India have the chance to make it 2-2 by winning in Southampton. He even went to say that India can wrap up the game within four days. Kohli made 97 and 103 in the third Test. He was adjudged man of the match. All-rounder Hardik Pandya bagged a five-for and scored a fifty.
“The way they played the last match (3rd Test), I feel that the Indian team can win the 4th Test on the fourth day itself. They have the spirit. But I feel that England will make a comeback. But India are like hungry tigers, they will hunt for a win for sure,” said Sehwag to IndiaTV.
Broad’s sledge on Pant turns out to be costly
English pacer Stuart Broad was fined 15 percent of his match fees for having a go at debutant Rishabh Pant. Broad was found to have breached Article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”
“Broad has played over 120 Test matches, this was Pant’s first, you’ve dismissed him, you’ve got the wicket, there is no need of sledging. Kohli was right in making him (Broad) understand later on.” he said.
Sehwag on Indian bowlers
“I feel India’s current bowling attack is one of the best at the moment. They have four pacers who have performed brilliantly so far. The ultimate test is on a flat track, whether they can claim all 20 wickets or not. Australia has the best batting tracks and if they’re able to claim all 20 wickets, your name is made. I feel that the bowlers are not given the credits,” concluded Sehwag.
