James Anderson: “We’ll Play the Same Way as the Last Two Years, But Be Smart.” “Eager” for the India Tests

Before the England players go to India to play the hosts in a five-match Test series that is scheduled to begin on January 25 in Hyderabad, Team England bowler James Anderson voiced his enthusiasm.

The seasoned seamer, who has been a constant for the English cricket team over the years, said that when they play the formidable Indian squad at home, they would need to be astute in how they approach their game plan.

This tour has me more enthusiastic than my prior trips to India. We have attempted to persevere through some very difficult times in the past. We’ll try to play the same style as the last two years, but we’ll play it wisely,” Anderson said.

England just defeated Pakistan handily, and the victory on the road will undoubtedly boost the team’s confidence before they play India.

According to Anderson, the circumstances they encountered in Pakistan would be comparable, if not identical, to what they encountered in India.

Nobody was able to stop us from winning 3-0 in Pakistan, and it gives us a great deal of confidence. Slow wickets for seamers and we need to be wise are possible but not certain, the 41-year-old said.

Anderson, who played on the English Test squad that won in India in 2012, said that the group will aim to repeat its previous performance.

“I’m just trying to marry all that up and make sure I’m in a really good place because I’ve been there before and it’s a place where conditions will not be in favor of the seamen,” the seamen said.

In an effort to play more red-ball cricket, Anderson decided to retire from limited-overs cricket early. He said that his lengthy career’s finest points had come over the previous six years.

“I think my career has reached its peak in the last five to six years.” The Englishman said, “Even if the Ashes did not go as well as I had hoped, I have bowled poorly in many series during my career; it is simply a matter of putting in the hard effort to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
