Former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly has predicted that the first Test of the 5 match series against England will end as a draw as the visitors ended the day leading by 163 runs with 10 wickets in hand. Alastair Cook and Haseeb Hameed took the attack to the Indian bowlers and did not face any trouble against the spin trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, and Ravindra Jadeja. Despite England having a slight advantage, Ganguly feels that it might have become too late for them to win the match. He feels that Cook will not declare before 300, which will take a lot of time.
