James Anderson, the experienced English bowler, exuded confidence in his team’s ability to succeed. Veteran English pacer James Anderson observed that India adopted a cautious approach while batting in their second innings on Day 3 of the ongoing second Test at Vizag. According to Anderson, the Indian team seemed uncertain about the target they should set in the fourth innings, taking into account England’s aggressive batting style. Thanks to Shubman Gill’s determined century (104), India managed to set a challenging target of 399 for the visitors. However, India’s lower-order batsmen collapsed, and they were eventually bowled out for 255 in the final session of the third day’s play. In pursuit of their target, England swiftly reached a score of 67/1 in 14 overs by the end of the day’s play. James Anderson, the experienced English bowler, exuded confidence in his team’s ability to succeed. He attributed this optimism to the mindset fostered by captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum, who have instilled a winning mentality within the players.
