In any case, Atherton, one of the most regarded voices of world cricket feels that India's reality class pace assault including Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma makes it an even fight for the guests.

On the up and coming England's arrangement against West Indies in bio-secure condition amidst COVID-19 pandemic, Atherton feels that West Indies' batsmen need to score races to allow their owlers to remain in the game.

"They have a nice bowling setup. Also, the inquiry truly is whether West Indies will get the races to give those bowlers the ammo to have a go at England. In the event that they do get runs, they'll be a danger to England and they'll be serious."
