Former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri feels that the Indian team would do well to attack home team skipper Alastair Cook, who is under immense pressure after a prolonged bad patch, during the upcoming five Test series against England, starting July 9.
Former England captain David Gower has joined the list of critics who believe that controversial batsman Kevin Pietersen had allowed his ego to come before the needs of the team in England`s 5-0 Ashes hammering by Australia.
Ian Bell`s unbeaten 105, in the second innings of the fourth Ashes Test at Durham, has made him only the third England batsman to score three centuries in a home Ashes series, after Maurice Leyland in 1934 and David Gower in 1985.
Former stylish English batsman David Gower feels that the ongoing five-match ODI series between India and visiting England in less than a month after the former`s dismal tour was not ideal for the game. "Its not ideal. I would rather see them (India and England) playing different oppositions. I saw a piece by Mr (Sunil) Gavaskar saying the same thing. I would have liked the teams playing in different countries," said the 54-year-old on Friday.
