ENG vs IND: Ben Stokes issues warning to India, expresses confidence in the new approach
England captain Ben Stokes has issued a warning to team India. This is ahead of the fifth test match on July 1. The fifth test match is set to go ahead at the Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham, England.
He said, “Regardless of the opposition, we’re still going to have the same mindset. We’ll be concentrating on what we’ve done well over these last three games and look to continue that against India on Friday.
I knew that everyone would buy into the new mentality I and Brendon set out, but I didn’t think it would go this well, to be honest.”
The new approach from the England team has gone on to immensely help them. England put up a dominant display against New Zealand. But the men in blue will look to stop that in the fifth test.
