England wicket-keeper batsman, Jos Buttler feels India is an outstanding Test team as both sides lock horns in a five-match Test series commencing from August 1 at Edgbaston.
Meanwhile, India suffered a humiliating defeat the last time they toured England in 2014. However, Buttler feels this will be a great series for every player. He also noted that they have done their preparation well and have plans for every opposition players.
“It’s a great group and India are an outstanding Test match team. So it is going to be a huge series for everyone taking part, there are some great match-ups,” Buttler wrote in Sky Sports. “We’ll prepare well and have plans for individual players in the opposition but it also comes back to what we do well as a side and, especially in home conditions, what works for us. That’s what the guys will be focusing on,” he added.
Jos Buttler made his debut four years ago against India when he made his highest score of 85. This time around, Buttler will be keen to score his maiden Test hundred.
“We’ve had an incredible summer and I don’t think we should moan about it. I don’t think it’s going to be quite subcontinental conditions but in international cricket, you need to adapt to all conditions, whether that be home or away. The side that does that the best will have a good series,” he added.
In conclusion, Buttler is anticipating a huge support for the visiting team and feels it will be some exciting weeks ahead.
“I’m sure there will be some great atmospheres over the new few weeks, the Indian fans are very loud and I’m sure there will be plenty of support for us, from the Barmy Army, in amongst it as well,” he concluded.
