IND vs. ENG: Mark Wood adds, "There are challenges, but we're keen to create history"


HYDERABAD: Britain seamer Imprint Wood said his group wouldn't control their going after impulses in the five-match Test series against India. Protected by their mentor Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stirs up, Britain's 'Bazball' has been the kind of the last couple of seasons. Wood, nonetheless, said his group knew about the difficulties they will look in this series.

We will still try to win the game. Now and again it's been savvy, however, to combine. And afterward whenever the opportunity comes, to return the tension on," he said on Tuesday.

It may not be basically as simple as Britain's success over Pakistan in late 2022, when they turned into the main visiting group to clear the series 3-0. " We made history in Pakistan as of late, turning into the primary group to dominate each game. Along these lines, this is one more opportunity to accomplish something memorable and attempt and beat India in their own circumstances."

However, managing pressure will be crucial. Everything unquestionably revolves around absorbing tension when the Indian batsmen are on top. On the field, we must stage a play or theater, and when the time comes, we must attack once more. That is something very similar with bat and ball," said Wood. " We know the difficulties here. They (India) seldom lose at home. It's almost like a free pass for us to try something different there.

In Abu Dhabi, we have prepared extremely well. We've made pitches, we've scraped pitches up to make them turn, we've put sand down to make it turn, we've had level pitches to rehearse basic and opposite swing. Thus, we've had every one of the offices accessible in Abu Dhabi. Turning off there too was likewise great. We had a decent group holding meeting. In this way, we've come here new intellectually and actually and all set," the 34-year-old from Durham said.

Sensible utilization of short-pitched stuff will be high on Britain's plan, he expressed, particularly against a habitual whore like Rohit Sharma.

"The circumstances will be surveyed once I'm out there, and knocks (bouncers) are seldom purchased over here. In any case, the pitch once in a while can be two-paced and, on the off chance that it is slow, it can help (bowlers) in light of the fact that the players will be through with the shot. Somebody like Rohit, I know how great he is on the short ball. I'll must be truly precise with it," he added.

Wood likewise said Britain would bank vigorously on James Anderson and left-arm spinner Jack Drain's insight of bowling in Indian circumstances.
