England will always fancy their chances more if that ball moves. If the conditions are like that in the month of August with moisture around, England will fancy bowling to that Indian side. “Yes, they are a world-class batting unit. But their big weakness is the ball that moves if it nips. You always fancy your chances against them,” Cook said on BBC Test Match Special podcast episode.
“I did say New Zealand was going to win that game purely down to the fact that they were match-hardened. Those two Test matches against England were such perfect preparation,” Cook said.
“Intra-squad games, as good as your intention might be, it hasn’t got the same intensity. First hour might be really competitive but everything goes less and less and less. India was hard done by that way,” Cook added.
