“India definitely has the team to succeed there”: Harbhajan Singh predicts the fate of India vs England test series

Harbhajan Singh gives his verdict: The 5-match test series between India and England starts on August 4th and both the sides have started their preparations for the same. Both India and England have suffered a late blow ahead of the first test match as Mayank Aggarwal and Ben Stokes have been ruled out of the game. England’s Ben Stokes announced last week that he is taking an indefinite break from International cricket. Mayank Aggarwal’s exclusion, unlike that of Ben Stokes, is temporary though. He has suffered a collision and is in contention to start the second match.

With the stage all set, various cricket analysts are making their predictions about the test series and former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has joined the list. The leg-spinner feels that the Indian squad has all the elements required to succeed.

Speaking at a Youtube Channel, he said “India definitely has the team to succeed there. Yes, they lost against New Zealand which was a one-off game, where India did not play well. If this Indian team wins on England shores, they will stand out from the rest. I hope this team performs well and wins the series.

“My prediction is that India will definitely win two or three Test matches and one contest will be a draw. Even if the series is drawn, it will be a huge gain because of the challenging conditions. Batting would be very important as the responsibility will be on Kohli, Rohit, and Pujara. If they score runs, then we have bowlers to bowl out England.”

“England will be under pressure because they will be playing without Ben Stokes. They fielded a team against New Zealand that, according to me, won’t win a Test for a couple of years at least. If they walk out with such a team, India will walk all over them,” concluded Harbhajan Singh.
