Melbourne: Australia great Ian Chappell feels India have an “equal chance” of beating England at home in the upcoming five-match Test series due to their excellent pace attack. He said that even though the Indian team lost the final of the World Test Championship to New Zealand, its pace bowling has improved in recent years, making it look like the West Indies and Australian teams of the bygone era.
Chappell wrote in his column in ‘ESPNcricinfo’, ‘In recent years, the Indian team has joined the ranks of skilled fast bowling teams. As a result, she tasted victory in Australia and reached the final of the World Test Championship. And now he has an equal chance of beating England in his own den. A good fast bowling unit definitely has its advantages.
The former Australian captain believes that fast bowlers like Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj have done well for India. He also praised New Zealand’s fast bowlers and called them as fearless as the West Indies bowling quartet of the 1970s and 90s.
Chappell said, “The fast bowling quartet of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Neil Wegner and Kyle Jamieson played a key role in winning New Zealand’s World Test Championship final. Such was the impact of the New Zealand attack that it was compared to the West Indies fast bowling quartet of the 1970s and 1990s.
