Former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja feels India can go on to “brownwash” England in the ongoing Test series if they win the second match of the series starting November 23 in Mumbai.

 

India have taken a 1-0 lead in the series after winning the opening Test in Ahmedabad by nine wickets.

 

Rameez felt that the wicket will turn even more in Mumbai and this would work to the home team’s advantage.

 

If England lose in Mumbai then India will have the clear edge. India will then have the excellent opportunity to go for a 4-0 result, which can be called a ‘brownwash’,” Rameez told PTI-Bhasha.

 

“India can win all the four matches and I feel the wicket will turn more in Mumbai. India definitely have the upperhand but England have shown the stomach for fight and the series would be an interesting one,” he said.

 

India were humiliated 0-4 by England in an away series last year and winning at home would be sweet revenge for Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s men.
