India will tour England to play three T20Is followed by as many ODIs in the month of July after their matches in Ireland. The team has already left for the United Kingdom. The first T20I will be played at the Old Trafford in Manchester on July 3. Meanwhile, the English team is going through a rich vein of form as they are presently 4-0 up in their ODI series versus Australia.
The pitches have been batting-friendly and bowlers have had tough days in the office. Recently, the Brits racked up the highest ever ODI score of 481 at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham, the venue where India will play the first ODI on July 12. Meanwhile, Varun Aaron, who returned to India following his stint with Leicestershire, reckoned that Virat Kohli’s men have a great chance to topple the Poms on flat decks.
“I am confident about it”- Varun Aaron
“The guys (in international cricket) are scoring 400 as if it is a joke. In the One-Day Cup, 300 is an average score, and you still might not win. The wickets are really flat and I feel that gives India a great chance. It will favor our batsmen. The wickets in the Tests maybe different but the general trend is flat.” Aaron was quoted as saying by Sportstar.
Aaron had an impressive stint for his county team. He played three matches in the four-day championship games and notched nine wickets. In the One Day Cup, he looked in good shape as well with seven scalps from six contests. The 28-year old last played for India back in November 2015. The Bihar-born seamer also talked about the approach he has employed to emerge as a better bowler.
“I wasn’t going there thinking I have to make a comeback. It will obviously be great if it happens. My aim was to come back to India as a better bowler and function close to my potential. The main thing is the domestic season coming up and I am confident about it,” the fast-bowler added.
