The five-match Test series between India and England is starting from January 25. The first match of this Test series will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad from 25th January. Many people are eagerly waiting for the upcoming test series.

However, before the Test series, England’s best opening batsman Ben Duckett has given a big statement regarding the fast bowling lineup of the Indian team. According to Ben Duckett, even though spin bowlers get more advantage in Indian pitches, it is also very difficult to play the fast bowlers of the host.

England toured India in 2021. Regarding the same, the England opener said that the team had performed very well in Chennai but they had to face a lot of problems against Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel. Let us tell you, India had won that test series by 3-1.

Ben Duckett said on Sky Sports Cricket Podcast, ‘Everyone praises the spin bowling of the Indian team but it is very difficult to play fast bowlers in the top order. It is not so easy to bat well against them even on Indian pitches. I have played against him and I can say that no one in this world has a better fast bowling attack in the heat than him.

I am completely ready for every scheme of India: Ben Duckett

Ben Duckett further said, ‘We played a lot of spin bowling in Abu Dhabi and now it will be very interesting to see how we perform here in India. I will not be surprised at all by whatever India throws at me. I have played on such pitches and I know what I have to face now.

Ben Duckett further said, ‘Playing against Ashwin is not so easy for any left-handed batsman. He bowls very well everywhere and it will be very difficult to bat against him in India. He is a world class bowler. I have played against him before and I am fully prepared for the upcoming challenges.
