Ex-Pak skipper Ramiz says India can 'brownwash' England
Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes that India can go on to 'brownwash' England in the ongoing Test series if they win the second match of the series starting November 23 in Mumbai.
India have taken a 1-0 lead in the series after winning the opening Test in Ahmedabad by nine wickets on Monday. Ramiz feels the wicket will turn even more in Mumbai and this will work to the home team's advantage.
"If England lose in Mumbai, then India will have the clear edge. India will then have the excellent opportunity to go for a 4-0 result, which can be called a 'brownwash'," the Daily Times quoted Ramiz, as saying.
"India can win all the four matches and I feel the wicket will turn more in Mumbai. India definitely have the upper hand but England have shown the stomach for fight and the series would be an interesting one," he added.
"England's bowling seems weak given the pitches. Indians, on the other hand, are masters of spin," Ramiz said.
He also praised young Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 206 and 41 in the Ahmedabad Test to win the Man-of-the-Match award.
"Pujara played a fine innings. England may be technically weaker but are a mentally strong unit. I feel to score over 200 against a team like that is the hallmark of a confident batsman," he said.
