India vice-captain Virat Kohli on Saturday expressed that he is excited for the upcoming tour of England, wherein the two sides will be clashing in a five-match Test series starting on July 19.

 

 

India’s former captain Rahul Dravid  is confident of India’s good show in England, as the last time when the team toured the Old Blighty in 2011, they were blaned 4-0.

 

“It is going to be a challenging series, there is no doubt about it. If India can find a couple of bowlers who can step up during the series, then I think they are in for a great series,” Dravid said a few days ago.

 

India are to play a five-Test series for the first time since 1959 and Dravid feels the MS Dhoni-led side showed plenty of signs of possessing quality players on their two previous overseas tours recently — to South Africa late last year and New Zealand early this year, reported PTI.
