“Very difficult to say who are the favorites. Both teams have not been playing a lot of Test cricket of late but what I can say is that India in their last Test match at the Oval have got a win against this very strong England team. They will be taking a bit of confidence from that,” de Villiers said while previewing the match on JioCinema.

“I think India will come out on top on day five of the Test match. I think it might go all the way. It’s a good wicket to bat on but I think the Indian spinners will come into play in the latter stages of the Test match,” the former cricketer AB de Villiers added.
“I am just going to mention one and someone who has always been fired up with all these kinds of series, especially in the UK and Australia. Everywhere he has traveled, he wants to prove a point – it’s Virat Kohli. It’s great to see him enjoy the game of cricket. I can’t wait to see him do well in the UK again,” the South African said.
“Bumrah is a big loss for the Indian bowling attack, but I do think that Mohammed Siraj is in the form of his life. He has done well there before. He has got that extra pace. Bumrah nips it around off-stump, and I think he is the biggest asset in India’s bowling attack,” he concluded.
