Former captain of England cricket Nasser Hussain: Currently, a series of 4 Test matches is being played between India and the England cricket team. Three matches of this series have also been played.
In such a situation, Nasser Hussain, former captain and best player of the England cricket team, believes that the England team lost their rhythm due to playing cricket on two consecutive difficult pitches.
Along with this, England’s team against India look very frightened in the second innings of the third Test match.
Former England captain Nasser Hussain said that it is completely linked to mentality and now England have to find some way to get this series drawn.
Lots of good debate and different opinions; it’s okay to disagree https://t.co/gQTVszKcGh

Which may prove to be right for them to win the match. Let us tell you that in the third Test match against England, India won this Test match by 10 wickets in both.
The Indian team has taken a 2–1 lead in this series in terms of winning the match. Joe Root and his teammates were seen battling at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Motera and in both innings.
Their team was all out for 112 and 81 runs. Former England captain Nasser Hussain said on the Sky Sports Cricket Podcast, especially on the ground where a Gayd was taking a spin.
And then the other man was skidding, then you lose your rhythm. After playing two consecutive Test matches on such pitches, it adds to your mindset.
England’s team looked terrified in the second innings. But I don’t think it was a pitch where only 81 runs were scored.
However, this pitch was much more difficult than the Chennai pitch. Left-arm spinner Axar Patel wreaked havoc on England.
He took 11 wickets for 70 runs in the day-night Test match. Nasser Hussain said, Axar Patel bowled quite accurately.
He bowled brilliantly, wicket to wicket on this ground. On this pitch, some balls took turn and some did not.

He took maximum wickets on the balls which were not turned. That is why we will look into it a lot and ask why these straight balls were not played.
The former England captain said, “This is linked to the mentality of this team.” And the right thing is that most of the talk about pitches and umpires is happening outside.
Let us tell you that the last match of the Test series between these two teams will be played on March 4.
