Ahemdabad: England opener Mark Butcher on Friday said it would be a tough task for both India and England to force a result in the second Test, which is interestingly poised with one day to go."It will be very interesting day on Saturday. We need all the 10 wickets in 90 overs while India need 357 to win," Butcher, who top scored in the England second innings with 92, told reporters after the day's play.Butcher denied the England batsmen had any instructions from the team management to score quick runs. "We had no instruction to go after the bowling. We were only told to hang in there and see how it goes," he said.The opener was obviously disappointed to miss out on his century but was satisfied to have contributed a healthy score to the total. "I am very happy I contributed to my team's cause and I hope we pull off a victory and square the series here," he said. PTI
