Inzamam-ul-Haq heaped praises on the Indian team’s body language during the first Test against England.
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has lavished praises on team India for their performance on Day 1 of the first Test against England. The Indian pacers were lethal on the field as they reaped rewards and restricted the England side for just 181. Inzamam thus felt that the bowling attack displayed their flair as the surface seemed good enough for batting.
In the finals of the World Test Championship, India’s bowling tandem was placed under major scrutiny. Inzamam recounted it and asserted that he could sense the pain of losing the WTC final in the players and the aggression was clearly visible in the first Test. He also pointed that a healthy lead by India will shift the fortunes of the game to their favor and that the players will have a great responsibility for it.
“Day 2 is very important for India. If they score 300-350, the fate of the test match will be sealed in favor of India. The players will have to take responsibility, and they have big players. I could see their pain of losing the WTC Final through their aggression. They could not perform in that match and the aggression missing in that match, was visible here,” Inzamam said on his YouTube channel.
The body language of India has changed ever since the tour of Australia: Inzamam-ul-Haq
India started day one on a high note as the pacers took the mantle to dominate the proceedings. As the team walked onto the field for the first Test with four pacers, Inzamam feels that it was a positive sign. He also opened up about the body language of the side and stated that their decision is an indication to the hosts that they would be playing an attacking brand of cricket.
“The body language of India has changed ever since the tour of Australia. They play cricket with aggression, this has happened in the last 1-2 years. The way they announced their team by plating four fast bowlers and an all-rounder was a positive sign. India have made it clear to the England dressing room that they will be playing attacking cricket,” Inzamam added.
