London: Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has said it would be tough for India to bounce back in the four-match cricket Test series and predicted a 4-0 whitewash by the hosts.
"4-0 England in the Test series. Zaheer coming back was India only hope. Big loss for them. Sorry to all my new found Indian followers," Vaughan said on his Twitter account.
England are leading the four-match Test series 2-0.
Vaughan said that it would be tough for India to pick 20 wickets with Zaheer Khan ruled out of the series.
"Indian fans seem to be very blinkered... Just accept that without Zaheer you will struggle to get 20 wkts in English conditions."
Vaughan blamed the Indian Premier League (IPL) for India`s poor show in England.
"I think the IPL will be a long term problem for the Indian test team... Young players will focus towards T20 cricket rather than Test," he said.
