Kohli's runs do matter: James

Indian Bowling Bench Is Strong Zaheer Khan On India Vs England Test Series Kohli's runs do matter: James
Shannon Reynolds | 26 July, 2018, 14:57

Azhar, who was part of the Indian side that beat England in their own backyard in 1986, said it was India's best chance to trump England in the five-match Test series starting next week in Birmingham as the Virat Kohli-led side is strong in all departments of the game.

Ishant, who is now a month short of 30, felt that he has matured a lot as a fast bowler in the 11 years of his Test career. Now Kuldeep's wrist action is a complex one and once he lands the ball, I don't think too many batsmen in world cricket have got the ability to tackle him off the pitch. "But if someone has got mystery, you might want to play him", Stewart told PTI in an interview.

Skipper Virat Kohli's treacherous form in 2014 has been talked about a lot but Tendulkar feels that it will have no bearing on Indian captain's performance in the upcoming series. He is determined to rectify this record, and showed that he can master the England bowling when he peeled off 655 runs in the home series in 2016-17.

"Today, cricketers learn from not only watching match footage but also from past experiences". He said that players like Kohli, along with other top-ranked batsmen like Joe Root, Kane Williamson and Steve Smith, had more time and their best quality was they could adapt quickly to any format or condition. Anderson, England's attack leader and the world's No. 2-ranked Test bowler, is once again ready to duel with the world's No. 2-ranked Test batsman, Kohli - a contest Anderson termed "exciting". If they bat well, they will do well in England. "We have had a hot few weeks (and a hot summer overall)".

"It will depend on the kind of surfaces that we get to play on", he said. That is something we will take into account when we come into that series.

Facebook Has Registered a Subsidiary in China, Plans "Innovation Hub in Zhejiang"
Facebook had quietly launched a photo-sharing app called "Colorful Balloons" for the Chinese market previous year . The company scouted for space in Shanghai a year ago and obtained a permit to open an office in Beijing in 2015.

"You would think that the red ball swings more or does more off the seam but it doesn't work like that", Anderson said.

A mystery spinner creates doubts if you haven't faced much of him, and it makes for great cricket when the batsmen are trying to figure out from 18-22 yards, which way it will go.

Over an global career spanning almost 16 years, Anderson has bowled to numerous world class batters including modern day greats like Virat Kohli, Joe Root (in county cricket), AB de Villiers, Steven Smith and Kane Williamson.

Similarly, former Team India skipper Azharuddin also desires Kuldeep to be in the playing XI. If there's a bit of help for our spinners then I am sure we will be in a position in the series to hurt them. "So, I will sit on the fence and say these are the best batsmen in the world, and not pick one", Anderson added.
