Former Australian spin bowler Brad Hogg made his prediction for the four-Test series between India and England starting on 5 February. Brad Hogg said that Team India would be successful in making this Test series 3–0 or 3–1. The Indian team recently returned to Australia by beating them 2–1 in the Test series on their own soil. In the absence of Virat Kohli, the team did well under Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy and also shattered Australia’s record of 32 years unbeaten at Brisbane’s Gaba ground.
India and England team have been announced for the first two Test matches against England. For India, regular captain Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya are back in the team. At the same time, England have included Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes in a team after resting them. Talking on his YouTube channel, Brad Hogg said, ‘I think India will be able to win the series by 3-0 or 3-1. I believe England will have their day in the third Test match in Ahmedabad. But, I think the Indian team will make a comeback and win the fourth and last Test in Ahmedabad. India will surely be able to win the first two Tests to be held in Chennai. So, 3-1 and India in the final of the World Test Championship to be held at Lord’s.
India have reached the top of the ICC World Test Championship after their historic win in Gabba, while Australia have slipped to number three after losing the Test series.
