London: Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev reckons that England would struggle to repeat a whitewash in next month’s five match ODI series.
The English team, which had thrashed India 3-0 in the five-match ODI series last month, will fly to India on Monday for the ODI series and a Twenty20 match.
Dev said that India would be a far more potent threat in the subcontinent conditions.
“Can they play good cricket in India? It won’t be very easy. India played very poor cricket in the summer, but injuries hit them badly. You don’t expect to have almost 29 boys, because of the injury call-ups, coming on tour in a series of 40 or 50 days,” Kapil Dev said.
“All credit to England, but when teams get hit by injuries like that you’re not going to get a good performance,” he added.
