England skipper Eoin Morgan is in India to lead his side in the ODI and T20 series. England who received a hammering in the Test series will surely look up to him for inspiration in the shorter formats.
Yes, I am really looking forward to it. Playing against India in India is a special experience. (They) are a strong side and hard to beat at home. I think, that’s something we are looking forward to as a side (and) it’s going to be a challenge”, said Morgan to one section of the media.
He also said about the new India captain on all formats Virat Kohli. ” He (Kohli) is a natural successor. One thing we do as a side, (is) that we don’t look at the opposition that much and focus firmly on ourselves and on what we need to do in this series” said Morgan.
Any ODI series we play, we don’t have a great deal of preparation going into it. So a lot of guys (players) do preparations in the lead up to a tour, which the guys have,” Morgan said when quizzed whether two warm-up games were enough to adjust to the conditions.
Even England vice captain, Jos Buttler also said that playing India in India will be a great challenge when questioned. He said ” It’s a great challenge (playing India in India). We are very lucky to come here and play as probably (it is one) of the best places to play in front of the crowds, it is a great challenge (and) everyone in our side is looking forward to that”.
The series starts from 15th January with the first game to be played at Pune.
