New Delhi: Senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar expects the upcoming India-England Test series to be a closely-contested one and said that past history will have no bearing on its outcome.
"I think we need to leave that thing behind. We also need to consider that immediately after that series when England came to India, we beat them 5-0, which cannot be forgotten. Many things have happened in the past. It is a fresh series and we need to see we produce the best performance," Tendulkar said.
"It will a good and interesting series and a closely fought series," he said at a live conversation with cricket fans at Airtel's 'Talk to Me Live' programme.
