  • India – India had a good series previously. The team performed well against Ireland and South Africa. It has all the key players who can make the team to the victory stand. The team captain Rohit Sharma has missed the 5th Test due to COVID but he has recently been and will lead the team. With him, Deepak Hooda and Ishan Kishan will try to bash the English bowlers. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Chahal will try to destroy the batting line of the opponents.


The team may have Virat Kohli, Bumrah, Rishabh Pant and Jadeja from the next match.

Team coach Rahul Dravid will be looking to make a good combination of the players to play fast cricket in the grounds of England. He may experiment with different combinations or stick to one, for it to work. Though batting always remained the strong point of Indians, yet, the pitches like England and Australia demand something more than normal batting technique. These are not like the pitches of India and Pakistan which are famous for batting friendly and high scores, often called dead pitches.

  • England – England has never been an easy team, especially on the home ground. It will give a tough time to India in all three departments. With the wicket-keeper captain, Joss Buttler, Jason Roy and Livingstone, the team may decorate the scoreboard with a heavy number in a few overs. The performance of Joss Buttler had been marvelous in IPL 2022. He has smashed almost all Indian bowlers recently. In the last 5 matches, his average is 81.6 with a strike rate of 157. In bowling, Moeen Ali, Chris Jordan and Livingstone may take wickets easily.


Adil Rashid will be missing as he is in Saudi Arabia for Hajj. it is astonishing that Bairstow and Ben Stokes are given rest for the series.

Out of the last 19 matches the teams played against each other, India won 10 while England won 9. Let’s see, the gap increases or England makes it to balance.
