He opined that without doubt, England are likely to turn favourites on their home soil.
“They will be. When you play sport, nobody likes to lose. So, there’ll be a reaction definitely. And like I said, when England go to India, India are favourites, and when India come to England, England are favourites,” Peter Trego told TOI.
It’ll be interesting to see if India are able to turn that around, but it will be tough. It’s normally when India come over to England, they struggle a little bit so it will be really interesting to see if they can turn it around,” he added.
The opening Test of the 5 match Test series will commence from August 4 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
