India tour of England: Red ball cricket over the recent past has undergone tweaking to make the format more interesting. Now, the latest cricketer to join suggest a change is former India batsman VVS Laxman.
In an interview with Sportstar, the batting great gave a rather interesting suggestion regarding the toss, while maintaining that Tests do not need to undergo any major changes.
“We have seen some high-quality Test cricket over the last few months, so, I do not think that the formats need to be tweaked.”
“Since the home team anyways enjoys a home advantage, maybe, in the first Test of the series, the touring team captain can be asked to decide what he wants to do,” Laxman explained.
India tour of England: Former India pacer Ajit Agarkar has picked his best bowling lineup for the historic ICC WTC Final against New Zealand. They are Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Shami and Ishant Sharma. He said even though Team India is not clear as to how the conditions would be like for the final, but he highlighted how Indian pacers will have a big role to play in the summit clash.
“We still don’t know what the conditions are likely to be, but we presume in England – with the Dukes ball in particular – there will always be helpful for the seam bowlers. You can’t imagine a pitch being very dry in mid-June. The seamers will play a part and India has got as formidable an attack as any in the world,” said Agarkar.
