England vs India Test means exciting moment. The first of a five-match Test series between England and India starts on Wednesday,4th August, 2021 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
The Indian players were rested for some time after the final of the World Test Championship. At the end of that break, the team against England has been announced to concentrate on the Test game again.
India Team Preview :
India team management has announced Virat Kohli as the captain. We can see KL Rahul in the Test opening for India, with Rohit Sharma. Cheteshwar Pujara can be seen in one down, Virat Kohli in middle order, Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant. I can show Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Sami, Ishant Sharma with the ball in hand. India have formed a very strong team in their Test tour. The Indian team has come to play a Test match against England after losing the Test Championship match. India will try to use their past experience to win against England.
England Team preview :
Everyone knows that England is the strongest team in Test cricket. The sad news for England is that Ben Stokes, the best player in the Tests, is not with them due to injury. Even then England have formed a very strong team. Joy Root will lead the England team. In the opening of England we can see Haseeb Hameed with Rory Burns. One could have Jonny Bairstow down. In the middle order we can see Joe Root, Jos Buttler, Daniel Lawrence. We can see Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, James Anderson, Sam Quran with the ball in hand. England is strong in both batting and bowling in Test cricket. Again the playground is their own. With that in mind, I hope England will play well in the Tests.
Pitch report :
There is grass on the wicket of Trent Bridge. In that case, many pace bowlers will benefit. The last two days of the match, the run may come much less.
It is currently raining heavily in England. In that case, there is a possibility of rain in the first test. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day of the Test match, the game may be closed due to rain. The average temperature during these five days can be 20 degrees Celsius.
Toss prediction :
Pitch, given the weather conditions, the team that wins the toss must decide to field.
