Ahmedabad: Cheteshwar Pujara feels England's batting line-up is fragile, but Samit Patel begs to differ.
"We have two world-class batsmen at the crease and Bell is still to come," Patel said at the media conference, on Friday. "Both Cook and Pietersen can score big hundreds."
After having himself bowled left-arm spin, Patel feels that Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha are getting turn as the ball is new and hard. "I think the ball is hard… It spins when it is harder. When it gets soft, we can get in. Cookie and KP should bat long."
Praising the Indian batsmen, he said: "Sometimes you have to give credit to the batsmen… (Virender) Sehwag played an outstanding knock."
