LONDON, Aug 8 (IANS): Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has said it would be tough for India to bounce back in the four-match cricket Test series and predicted a 4-0 whitewash by the hosts.
�4-0 England in the Test series. Zaheer coming back was India only hope. Big loss for them. Sorry to all my new found Indian followers,� Vaughan said on his Twitter account.
England are leading the four-match Test series 2-0.
Vaughan said that it would be tough for India to pick 20 wickets with Zaheer Khan ruled out of the series.
�Indian fans seem to be very blinkered... Just accept that without Zaheer you will struggle to get 20 wkts in English conditions.� Vaughan blamed the Indian Premier League (IPL) for India�s poor show in England.
�I think the IPL will be a long term problem for the Indian test team... Young players will focus towards T20 cricket rather than Test,� he said.
