Indian cricket team all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is confident that Virat Kohli-led Indian side can beat England in their backyard.
“One good thing about Indian cricket is that we have options. Most of the international teams don’t have bowling options left after retirement, but we have everything right now. We have a positive approach towards this series and we genuinely feel that we are the only side that can beat England in their own backyard,” Ravindra Jadeja told ‘ESPNcricinfo’.
When Jadeja was asked about visitors playing three spinners, he said, “Anything can happen. Kuldeep has really been playing well.”
In 2014, India had lost five-match Test series by 1-3, however, Jadeja feels this Indian unit is much wiser.
“Yes, we have more experienced players and most of our players have played a minimum of 25-30 Test matches. Experience is useful in Test cricket. England have good fast bowlers who can exploit their home conditions.”
“We also have some good bowlers, but during our 2014 tour, we didn’t have enough experience. We were unaware of how the wicket would behave and how the weather will be. Now, we are aware of the conditions and after so much experience in Test Cricket, I feel we can even dominate them,” Jadeja said.
