After Ben Stokes became the captain and Brendon McCullum was appointed as the head coach, England have completely changed their red ball approach and they are playing very aggressive cricket at the moment. England have been very successful in the longest format of the game, but the India tour starting from January 25 is not going to be easy for them.

Ben Stokes and Co. have not yet been tested in spin-friendly conditions. And that’s why former cricketer Steve Harmison believes that the England team will make a big mistake if they reach India just 3 days before the first Test.

According to reports, England will train in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) before reaching India on the night of 21 January or the morning of 22 January. Harmison also said that the team cannot go into the first Test without preparation.

They may lose 5-0 – Steve Harmison

Speaking to talkSPORT, Harmison said, ‘If England go three days early, they could lose 5-0. You cannot go to India without preparation. In fact you cannot go to India even with a lot of preparation, you can be in India six weeks in advance and still not be ready for the first Test.

He further said, I would love to know what players like Pietersen, Strauss, Cook would think about England touring India three days before the series. I think they’ll laugh at you.

Harmison also said that it is not a new thing in which the visiting team reaches late. Rather, these are the players who have played a huge role in England’s late arrival in India.
