England’s Broad expects pace rotation during India Tests

England’s Broad expects pace rotation during India Tests

"Someone like Virat Kohli is an immensely talented guy but also watching him go about it you see that mentality of getting to the top", he explained.

Kohli struggled against seam bowlers in 2014 with England paceman James Anderson dismissing the right-handed batsman four times in the series. "But if you have a Test, where you bowl them out in 80 or 60 overs, that changes your thinking", Broad told reporters during an interaction.

"We are not anxious at all, because both are really quality batsmen", said India s Ajinkya Rahane of his top-order colleagues.

Buttler played for the Rajasthan Royals during this year's IPL, scoring 548 runs at an average of 54.80 with the help of five half-centuries including two unbeaten 90s. "It is hard to judge different players as I think they both are match-winning players".

"I think they are both are world class players in all formats of the game".

"If the pitches turn square and the spinners do a lot of the work, you might not bowl so much but come on when the ball starts to reverse swing, so sometimes your workloads can be higher if it is green and nibbling", Broad added.

The first test at Birmingham will witness England attaining a major landmark in the red ball cricket.

Their overall Test record in England is uninspiring - six wins from 57 matches and three series victories - 1971, 1986 and 2007. "There is a lot more familiarity between the sides than there ever has been before", said Buttler.

Arsenal Legend Ian Wright Blasts 'Absolutely Disastrous' Stan Kroenke Takeover
The £550-million ($708.5-million) buy-out will see Kroenke assume full control of the north London football club. So, who is Kroenke and how long has he been involved with Arsenal? . "The AST is wholly against this takeover".

"It was a very nerve-racking time - I wish I'd been playing, but there you go, I was a long time retired by then - and then there was that dramatic end".

"I am sure there will be moments in the Test series, especially on the field, when those things look like they have been forgotten".

"Of all the countries we play against they have the biggest following and cricket is as much a religion there as anywhere".

Buttler feels a Test series against India is nearly as important as the Ashes.

"Absolutely, it is a huge series". India are a fantastic team in all conditions as well as here.

Prior to a tour where India have won the Twenty20 series and England triumphed 2-1 in the one-day internationals, Kohli said he thought relations between the teams would be cordial because of the links forged in the IPL.

The 27-year-old was recalled to the Test line-up purely on the strength of some impressive batting displays in this season's Twenty20 IPL, with new England selection chief Ed Smith convinced the dynamic form he showed in India would transfer into the Test-match arena.
