DTH News : Eng's best team can beat India any day: Gough
Advertisement
#1
London: Former Three Lions fast bowler Darren Gough has stirred controversy in cricket circles by saying that India are only champions on home turf, and that he fancies England beating the MS Dhoni-led squad every day of the week sooner than later.

Raising a toast to England`s Ashes heroes, Gough said: “We`re now the best team in the world. This team is the Golden Generation (of English cricket). They are the side that are going to dominate world cricket for the next few years.”

A newspaper further quoted him, as saying: "For me, we`re the best team in the world at this moment. I`ve watched the South Africa-India series and I see nothing to worry about. India is fantastic in their own country and have some great individuals, but I`d fancy this England side to beat them every day of the week.”

"I don`t know whether that is because we`re better than everybody else in sight or because we have a top-class spinner and five bowlers who could start a Test, no problem. We now have so many options, especially in attack, and the reason this team are so dominant is because we have 16 players who could have started the first Test match," Gough said.

Gough believes Strauss` heroes deserve the same accolades as the 2005 Ashes side, who were awarded MBEs and enjoyed an open-top bus parade through London.

He added: "Will this team get the same reception? Probably not. Do they deserve to? I would say yes."

It is only his opinion- Hope he may have not seen that 2nd test match between India/SA..
Otherwise, how can he say that India is only best in their own country!????
