Dravid was the final Indian captain to win a Test collection in England.
“I really do think India have a very good chance this time,” Dravid mentioned throughout a webinar, in keeping with ‘ESPNcricinfo’.
The webinar was organised by Live Aid India, a belief to assist these affected by COVID-19.
Dravid, who’s now the pinnacle of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, mentioned Ravichandran Ashwin versus Ben Stokes might kind an “interesting subplot” to what’s anticipated to be an intriguing collection.
“There’s no query about their (England’s) bowling. Whatever bowling assault England placed on the park, particularly their seam-bowling assault, goes to be incredible. They have numerous gamers to choose and select from and that’s going to be terrific.
“But when you take a look at their prime six or prime seven, you actually consider one nice batsman, a world-class batsman who’s Joe Root.
“Obviously, Ben Stokes is another one, who is a good all-rounder, but for some reason Ashwin seems to do well against him. And that should be an interesting contest. I know he’s done well against him (Stokes) in India, but it’ll still be an interesting subplot to the series.”
But an Indian workforce, on the again of its historic triumph in Australia and the house collection win in opposition to England, will definitely fancy its possibilities.
“… But I simply suppose India might be well-prepared, have the boldness from Australia, there’s lot of perception in the squad.
“A couple of players have been to England a few times, there’s a lot of experience in the batting order this time around, so this is probably our best chance, maybe say 3-2 to India,” Dravid mentioned.
The former captain mentioned India, to their benefit, will get numerous time to organize there for the rubber.
“I think India will play really well in England this time,” Dravid mentioned.
“It’s an amazing alternative we’ve bought. After the WTC closing, they’re going to be in England for an entire month earlier than the Test collection begins. I don’t suppose any workforce has had that sort of time to organize for a Test collection as India can have this time, in order that certainly needs to be an amazing benefit.
“In England, if there’s one factor you’ve at all times bought to respect, it’s the circumstances. It’s barely completely different from say an Australia or India.
“To some extent you sort of get the feeling (as batsmen) that you’re never set. Even if you’re set and you get a good start, batting on 30, 40, 50, things can change very quickly, the weather can change, the ball can swing even after it’s 40-50 overs old,” Dravid noticed.
