Birmingham, August 01 at 3:30 PM IST

The much-anticipated Test series between England and India is here. The two sides kickoff a five-test challenge in Birmingham on Wednesday.

India have not had great success on the English soil in the past, with only three wins in 17 attempts. Their atrocious record in England is all because of the conditions – ball rarely spins and batsmen are not used to seam, swing or bounce. However, there is plenty of experience and temperament in the side for India to topple the hosts.

England, playing their milestone 1000th Test, have concerns of their own. In their previous Test battle, the hosts had struggled against Pakistan earlier in this Summer season. James Anderson and Stuart Broad have not been at their best in the series and must buck up to give tourists all the trouble. Plus, they have unsettled third and fourth bowler and well as batting apart from Cook and Root.

Pitch condition: The recent rains and the first look of the wicket suggests that this one will help the seamers.

Last Test result at the venue: England 514/8d beat West Indies 168 & 137 – 1st Test, West Indies tour of England 2017
