London: The arrival of Virender Sehwag might have triggered hopes of an Indian revival but former England captain Ian Botham says given that the dashing opener is short of match practice, even he can't stop the hosts from clinching the ongoing series 4-0.
"I can't see any reason why 4-0 isn't on...what is there to stop them (England) from making it 4-0? Not a lot in my eyes, and certainly not the brittle India batting line-up they're facing," Botham wrote in his column for 'The Daily Mirror'.
"The suggestion is that Virender Sehwag is going to go straight into the team with Gautam Gambhir happy to play now his bruise isn't hurting him anymore. Well if they think those two will turn fortunes around on their own, then think again because in the case of Sehwag certainly, opening the batting in a Test match in England without any first-class cricket behind you in months, against this attack is anything but a walk in the park," he added.
