London: Former England captain Nasser Hussain believes Virat Kohli has filled the spirit of never giving up in the current India squad and she is not troubled by the negative situation either inside or outside the field. Hussain has called on England to be ready for a tough challenge in the Test Series starting February 5 in Chennai.
Despite captain Virat Kohli and some key players injured, the young Indian team led by Ajinkya Rahane presented a prime example of their strength and intentions. Returning after losing in Adelaide to Australia, they won the 4-game series 2–1.
He said: “ Any team that lost 0-1 due to a 36-layoff in Australia, that lost Kohli due to paternity leave, whose bowling attack has become crippled and it remains always on the pitch If you come back with a special passion inside and out, then you can’t put him under pressure.
Nasser Hussain, while praising Virat Kohli and Team India, said: “ India has become a tough team now and I think Kohli has filled that thing in him. Make no mistake, they are a very strong home team.

The 2-0 win over Sri Lanka is full of excitement for England but Hussain said the visiting team should pick their best XI for the first test. Hussain had previously formulated a strong objection to not selecting Johnny Bairstow for the first 2 tests.
Hussain said: “It’s a very good sign that he won this series before the tough challenge ahead. Ashes, series at home against India and abroad, the New Zealand series is not easy but it will play series against India with confidence and winning pace.
Nasser Hussain said: “I was born in India and have always considered India v England (IND v ENG) as one of the best series. All I would say is go down to Chennai with your top 13-15 players.
