Former Pakistan cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq lauded England pacers for an exceptional bowling attack against India on Day 4 of India vs England 4th Test at Headingley. Inzamam-ul-Haq also pointed out that conditions were batting-friendly in Leeds but England pacers were top-class with their bowling. England defeated India by an innings and 76 runs in the 3rd Test.
On Day 4 of the Headingley Test on Saturday (August 28), the Indian team lost 8 wickets of just 63 runs, facing a miserable batting collapse. England won the match in the first session itself. Ollie Robinson picked a five-wicket haul in the 2nd innings, while Craig Overton took 3 scalps. James Anderson and Moeen Ali managed to take 1 wicket each in their kitty.
England Bowlers Were Exceptional At Headingley: Inzamam-Ul-Haq
While speaking about the match on his YouTube channel, Inzamam-ul-Haq praised England pacers for their exceptional and top-class performance against India.
“Full credit to England’s bowlers, they were exceptional at Headingley. Despite conditions being suitable for batting on Day 4, England’s pacers were top-class. Their line and length was on the mark and they were rewarded for their consistency. James Anderson may not have picked many wickets but he did not give away any free runs.
“He kept the Indian batters under pressure throughout and never allowed them to settle. All the England bowler bowled really well. There was plenty of pressure on them in the previous two Tests but they handled it in a commendable manner,” Inzamam-ul-Haq said.
The former Pakistani skipper also feels that fans can expect a great competition between England and India in the upcoming Test matches.
“Team India’s bowlers too have been fiery and aggressive in the three Tests. India did not play well in the third Test but were impressive in the first two. England came back superbly at Headingley. Looking ahead in this series, both sides have very good fast bowlers. So we can expect great competition going ahead,” Inzamam further said.
With a victory in the 3rd Test, England has managed to get their first win in the ongoing series. The series is levelled at 1-1 currently, after the conclusion of three games. India and England are set to face off in two more Tests. India vs England 4th Test will be played at Kennington Oval in London. The encounter begins on September 2.
