New Delhi. England fast bowler Mark Wood said that India have world-class batsmen and the bowlers will have to perform accurately in front of them. India (India vs England) won the second Test at Lord’s and the fourth at The Oval and are currently 2-1 ahead in the series. England won the third test match at Leeds. The last match of the series will be played in Manchester from 10 September. India has a chance to win the Test series in England after 14 years.
“I believe they (India) have world-class batting,” Mark Wood said in a virtual press conference ahead of the fifth and final Test match starting Friday. If you look at his entire batting line-up, then you find that he is a great player, he is a good player. Rohit Sharma is the best batsman. He finds it difficult to bowl in any conditions.
Wood said, “I am really impressed by KL Rahul. He drops the balls very well in the beginning and has batted really well once he gets to the crease. Both the openers are two big wickets for us.” The 31-year-old fast bowler, who has taken 64 wickets in 21 Test matches so far, said that England comes to the field with a strategy for each batsman of the opposition team.

He said, “After this you have Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in front of you. Among the batsmen I have bowled to, Kohli has been the most difficult to get out. That is to say, they have world-class batting, but if you don’t believe in yourself, if you don’t believe that you can’t get them out, then there’s no point in playing.

Wood said, “That’s why we believe in ourselves as a team. We have a strategy for every batsman, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. But when you have such good batsmen in front of you, you have to bowl accurately all the time otherwise they will punish you severely.”
