ENG vs IND 4th Test: Possible Playing 11 of India


IND Playing 11: India will play England in the 4th Test of this intriguing series at Kennington Oval, London. With series critically poised at 1-1, both teams will look to inch ahead by winning this Test. India had a disappointing performance at Leeds after a famous win at Lord’s just before. They were dominated in all departments by the hosts and went on to lose by an innings. Virat Kohli and his men will need to regroup once again to challenge the hosts. In the head-to-head record in 129 Tests, England leads India 50-31.

Team News

  • Ishant Sharma’s disappointing show at Leeds means he is likely to be dropped for this match. Shardul Thakur is likely to replace him which will also strengthen India’s batting.
  • There is no update on Ravindra Jadeja after he suffered a knee injury in the last Test. R Ashwin could replace him in this match.

Despite having a world-class bowling attack, India’s batting has let them down in recent times. Getting dismissed for a paltry 78 in the last Test put England way ahead which meant India were always chasing the game. Pujara and Kohli’s knock were big positives and both will look to play a match winning innings this time. The bowling attack seems to be India’s strength at the moment. Bumrah, Shami and Siraj will pose a big threat to England’s batsmen.
