Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has predicted a Test series whitewash by India against England starting with the first match at Rajkot on Nov 9. Ex-English skipper Michael Vaughan affirmed the gap between the sides and said that England will need to “park the bus” to survive the series.
Ganguly said, "India are playing superb cricket. I am expecting another whitewash like the one against New Zealand. They (England) should be worried," reported Firstpost.

"If they perform like they did against Bangladesh, it'll be 5-0," Vaughan had said.
He believes the only way England could compete with the world's No.1 side and avoid coming back without a win was to "park the bus".
"They haven't got enough expertise or wow factor with the ball to be able to blow India away. They have to try and stay in the game. If they try and play this expansive way India will just laugh and have them on toast and it will be a 5-0 whitewash. No question about it," said the 42-year-old.
"If you want to call it negative cricket, play negative cricket. The only way they can compete is to try and frustrate them and try to force the error."
