ENG vs IND 2018: ‘Hungry Tigers’ India Will Hunt For A Win In Fourth Test, Says Virender Sehwag
Former India batsman Virender Sehwag feels spirited India can win the fourth England vs India Test.
Not many had given India a chance to win a game in the series after the way they were trounced in the first two Tests. In both the games, India’s batting had failed miserably.
They had lost the opener by 31 runs while chasing a modest 194. Then came the second game at Lord’s where India failed in every department. In the first innings, India were all out for just 107 with James Anderson taking 5 for 20. In reply, England scored a mammoth 396 for 7 to put the game beyond India’s reach. And the visitors did little to challenge England.
Trailing by a huge 289 runs, draw was the only option for India. However, it took England less than two sessions to bundle up the world number one Test side. India never looked in contention to save the game and were all out for just 130. Overall, India batted less the 83 overs in the game.
But just when it looked a comeback is beyond India’s reach, the Virat Kohli-led side bounced back in style to win at Trent Bridge and keep the series alive. India were better than the hosts in every department as they won the game by 203 runs.
And Virender Sehwag feels India would play the upcoming game as hungry tigers and go for the series-levelling win. At the same time, he also said that the hosts will make a comeback after the horror display in the last Test.
“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,” Sehwag told IndiaTV.
India now trail England 1-2. But with momentum on their side, the world number one Test side will be looking to make the most of it.
India will now play England in the 4th Test at Southampton commencing August 30.
