Virat Kohli-led India is all set to lock horns with England for the five-match Test series slated to kickstart from 1 August in Edgbaston which will go on till September 11.
As the hosts gear up to play against the no.1 Test side, a cloak-and-dagger affair could be in store as both the teams will try to fire all cylinders when they meet each other for the opening encounter of more than a month-long series which will put all the skills of both the teams at a test.
England men’s team will be playing their 1000th Test match on Wednesday at Edgbaston where they have played 50 Tests since their first Test in May 1902 and when it comes to clashing with India, England have managed to dominate India since their first Test in June 1932, with a win-loss ratio of 43:25.
Considering England’s recent torrid form in Test cricket, India might rewrite the history books under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.
England have just one win under their belt out of their last nine matches whereas India have a win percentage of 60 per cent in the longer format of the game.
Both the teams have begun to fire salvos at each other, and Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the focal point of it. This time when he takes on England, he will not only look forward to exorcising the ghosts of 2014 but also to conquer English conditions.
When India toured in England in 2014, the hosts outplayed India by 3-1. Notably, India have only won three Test series against England in England. It remains to be seen if Virat becomes the fourth Indian skipper to win a Test series against England on their home soil.
