The excitement for the five-Test series between England and India, which begins on 4th August is building up. Virat Kohli-led Team India would be eager to make up for the loss of the World Test Championship final by beating England in home conditions and register their first Test series win since 2007 in the UK. On the other hand, the Joe Root-led side will be looking to avenge their defeat over India after a 3-1 loss earlier this year.
Michael Vaughan predicts results for the Test series between England and India
The much-anticipated series between England and India is just a day away. Many fans along with some cricket experts have already started to predict the result of the five-Test series. Some say England being in home conditions will win while some say Virat Kohli-led side has all the bases covered and can defeat hosts.
However, former England skipper Michael Vaughan made a bold prediction ahead of the Test series between the two nations. The cricketer-turned commentator said that with no Ben Stokes in the English side and spin playing a part during August and September in the UK, it’s the best chance for India to defeat England at home. He further stated that the Virat Kohli-led side will win the series 3-1.
“With no Ben Stokes in English side and the fact that New Zealand beat this England’s Test team in the UK recently, I think India will win the series. It’s the best chance for them as the last couple of times they have been here they had high hopes but they just faulted for whatever reason, they just not managed to get enough runs. With No Ben Stokes, England will try to balance the side which will be very very difficult for Joe Root and with spin playing part in August-September, I think India is going to win the series 3-1,” Michael Vaughan said on Cricbuzz show.
