The Test at Lords saw English cricketers thrashing Indians in all departments of the game. Root-led side completely outplayed them despite rain taking away the major part of the time.
I am not writing off India yet – Waqar Younis
The classy fast bowler hailed England for their dominating performance against India. He gave his congratulations to the hosts before giving his encouraging words to the visitors, the Indian team.
Waqar Younis feels team India has the capacity and capability to make a comeback into the game. With the three Tests yet to be played, one can see a lot of cricket coming on its way from England.
”Incredible performance by England at Lords. Simply too good…They outclassed India..but im not writing off India as yet..They have the capacity and the capability to bounce back…Still, plenty left in this series,” Younis tweeted.
However, as Waqar Younis said, one can expect something special from Virat Kohli-led side. Though the India team has the great firepower in the unit, the sudden injuries and the lack of form from the top-order batsmen is hurting them.

After the conclusion of Lord’s Test, both the teams set to take their drive to Trent Bridge to lock horns in 3rd Test, starting August 18th. The upcoming Test will be a make or break for Indians, as the win for England will draw curtains on the hopes of the Indian team.
Following the third Test at Nottingham, the action shifts to The Rose Bowl, Southampton on August 30th. Then, the final game will be played at Kennington Oval, London.
All in all, the exciting series came into the brilliant phase of the things. It would be interesting to see how Indian management will tackle the things upfront.
