Match Preview:

Both teams come into the contest with contrasting recent form. India, riding the crest of a 3-0 T20I series victory over their English rivals, exudes confidence and momentum. Their home advantage adds another layer of potency, with India boasting an unblemished record of not losing a Test series on home soil for the past eleven seasons.

Virat Kohli’s absence might hurt them a bit but the consistent brilliance of Rohit Sharma in limited-overs format have bolstered their batting prowess. The spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will spearhead the attack on a pitch expected to favor turn, making them India’s key weapons.

England, however, shouldn’t be underestimated. Led by the aggressive Ben Stokes, they arrive after a resounding Test series win over Pakistan. Openers Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings hold the key to navigating the early Indian swing bowling, while the middle order boasts experienced campaigners like Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.
