Ranchi, Feb 26: Former captain Nasser Hussain on Monday said that England should not feel ashamed of losing the Test series to India, as Rohit Sharma’s side are the deserved winners in view of the skill-set as well as the mental toughness they possess.
“India deserve credit for the way they’ve played throughout the series, they have been without some star names…Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah in this one, Mohammed Shami, KL Rahul for most of the series and Rishabh Pant,” Hussain wrote on Sky Sports.“There’s a long list of people that India are missing and yet they’ve managed to put in performances. You have to give credit to India, not only for the skill they have, but the mental toughness to have another home series win.“Their record at home is absolutely phenomenal, so there’s no shame in England losing to this Indian side.” After surviving a few hiccups, India chased down the target of 192 with Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel remaining not out on 52 and 39 respectively. Hussain praised the duo for their knocks.“Shubman Gill showed his class and his calmness, while Dhruv Jurel has just been a revelation in the two games he has played – both as a keeper and also with the bat.” Reflecting on England’s performance, he said the visitors already lost the match on the third day.
“What a turnaround from India after the first innings, where they got close to England’s total because of Dhruv Jurel and Kuldeep Yadav and then Ben Stokes’ side lost seven for 35.
“It was another excellent Test match in an excellent Test series. England were really good today and they put up as much of a fight as they could,” said Hussain. (PTI)
