The Indian spin troika of Ravinchandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel have been lethal in home series. More importantly, all three players have also contributed significantly with the bat. In the last home series against England in 2021, Axar Patel picked up 27 wickets in just three matches.

Yashasvi Jaiswal will play his first Test match on home soil, after making his debut in West Indies which was followed by a South African tour. He will be accompanied by Rohit Sharma at the top of the order, who enjoys playing against this opposition, scoring 747 runs in just about 17 innings.

Joe Root and Ben Stokes are the key players for the Three Lions. Joe Root has a stellar record against India, scoring 2526 runs in 45 matches. He could also prove to be handy with the ball, given the nature of the Indian wickets.
