Mumbai: Former stylish English batsman David Gower feels that the ongoing five-match ODI series between India and visiting England in less than a month after the former's dismal tour was not ideal for the game.
"Its not ideal. I would rather see them (India and England) playing different oppositions. I saw a piece by Mr (Sunil) Gavaskar saying the same thing. I would have liked the teams playing in different countries," the 54-year-old told PTI here on Friday.
"But the whole schedule is congested. England next play Australia in the one-dayers. There's a bit of imbalance. We have to see how the next element in the FTP goes about," added Gower, who is here as a patron for the "Emeralds for Elephants", an initiative for protection of India's wildlife.
