Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has shared his thoughts on the upcoming Test series between India and England starting with the first Test in Trent Bridge. Talking to Times of India, Chahal said that Virat Kohli will lead the team to a series win in England. Kohli led India to a series win against England at home and Chahal expects him to repeat that feat now in England a well.
Yuzvendra Chahal was a part of the Indian team that recently played a white-ball series in Sri Lanka. While the team won the ODI series, they lost the T20I series. Meanwhile, Chahal is confident of his Indian skipper winning this Test series.
“This series will be so exciting. I see India as the favorites to win the series. We are high on confidence after defeating Australia in their own backyard. I am sure that Virat bhaiya will take India to a series win in England,” Yuzvendra Chahal stated.

Chahal further said that the Indian team has all the bases covered be it batting or bowling. He said that the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Kohli himself will do the job with the bat.
“Be it batting, bowling, or fielding, we have all the boxes ticked. We have batsmen who can take the game away from the opposition at any point of time or in any situation. We have bowlers who can get breakthroughs at any time. We have Virat bhaiya, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit bhaiya, and Rishabh who are in great form,” Chahal said.
Speaking about the bowlers Yuzvendra Chahal said that the Indian team with Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and others boasts of a good bowling attack and can get the job done.
“In bowling, we have Bumrah, Shami bhaiya and Ishant bhaiya. Ashwin and Jadeja are also there. So, we have a strong side to win the series in England” the Indian leggie asserted.
Chahal concluded by saying that despite playing for India in the white-ball format playing Test cricket for India remains his ultimate dream.
