With extended winters prevailing in the Northern part of the country, the weather will be chilly and rain could also play a part, something that no one would like. Fast bowlers would be getting assistance as there would be moisture.

KL Rahul has reportedly travelled to the United Kingdom to seek consultations and treatment for his injury and is all but ruled out of the fifth Test too.

Karnataka batter Devdutt Padikkal is set to make his Test debut against England in the fifth Test in Dharamshala on March 7, according to a report in the Hindustan Times. The in-form left-handed batter would replace Rajat Patidar, who has struggled in his first three Tests with scores of 32, 9, 5, 0, 17 and 0.

Premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah missed playing the 4th Test in Ranchi due to ‘workload management’. He is now declared as the Vice-Captain for the upcoming fifth and final IND vs ENG Test match.

India might go with 3 seemer-2 spinner combo as the wicket of Dharamshala will offer extra assistance to the pacers.
