India tour of England 2014: Mike Gatting lauds English pacers

This is a video of former England captain Mike Gatting‘s  interview where he says that the  England’s pace bowlers have performed well on a slow wicket at Trent Bridge.

India, after winning the toss, were 259 for four at stumps on the first day of this five-match series, with opener Murali Vijay 122 not out and skipper MS Dhoni 50 not out after winning the toss on a surface that wouldn’t have been out of place back at home. Certainly there was little in the way of pace and bounce for England’s four seamers, with two possible chances dropping short of the slips.

James Anderson, who took two for 70 in 21 overs as he extended his all-time record for most Test wickets at Trent Bridge to 51, admitted it had had been hard pounding. During last year’s 3-0 home Ashes win, England were accused by some Australian critics of preparing slow, turning pitches that favoured now retired off-spinner Graeme Swann and negated the tourists’ pace attack.
