The first name that comes to every mind on a tour to England is that of James Anderson. The seasoned fast bowler is considered as a ‘legend’ to the game and rightfully so. Anderson, having featured in 162 Tests for England, has picked up a staggering number 617 wickets. This includes 30 five-wicket hauls as well. The 39-year-old is a master of swing bowling in home conditions and will yet again be looking to impose himself on the Indians.

Rishabh Pant has been one of the most pivotal members for Team India in recent times. The wicket-keeper batsman made his Test debut in England back in 2018, and even struck his first ever hundred against them. Ever since the previous tour to England, Rishabh Pant has grown significantly as a player. The 23-year-old has scored 1403 runs from 21 Tests, at an average of 43.8. He’s also struck six fifties and three hundreds in the process.

Sam Curran was a major problem for the Indian team the last time they toured to England. The specialist all rounder impressed with both bat and ball and was even named the Player of the Series in 2018. Curran just like Pant for India, has been taking strides in international cricket for England. Having featured in 21 Tests, Sam Curran has picked up 44 wickets. He also has three fifties to his name with the bat.

Runs Scored: 741
Mohammed Shami has been one of the most consistent bowlers for India, and will have a big role to play for his side in the series ahead. The right-arm-fast-bowler has represented India in 51 Tests, and has picked up 184 wickets in the process. His ability to be lethal with the new, as well as the old ball makes him a real asset for his side.
