Dubai: England pacer James Anderson is in no mood to underestimate India and believes the world No 1 Test team has the ability to make a strong comeback following their humiliating 196-run loss in the series opener at Lord's.

"If you look at their team sheet, it is a daunting line-up. They had the misfortune of Zaheer Khan pulling up early on, but they will come back strongly," said Anderson on the eve of the second Test beginning at Trent Bridge on Friday.

"But hopefully we can continue the good work in the next three games," he added. The 28-year-old pace spearhead, who picked up five for 65 in India's second innings to script England's win in the 2000th Test in history, was thrilled with the perfect team performance.

"It was a great game for us. Kevin Pietersen getting a double hundred, Matt Prior getting a hundred. It was a matter of patience for us in an attempt to get ten wickets. We had confidence that we could bowl them out," Anderson said.

"They have fantastic batters, a world class line-up who could quite easily bat through the day. That's why the patience was key. England's pace attack was in top shape in the first Test with Stuart Broad and Chris Tremlett complementing Anderson's effort very well.," he added.

"We discuss all the time on where to bowl to which batsmen. Those two (Broad and Tremlett) speak a lot among each other because they are a lot different to me. Graeme Swann was fantastic as well," Anderson recounted.
