Check our ENG and IND dream11 prediction and preview. The World no.1 rank test side India is preparing for their toughest five match series against 5th ranked England side. Virat Kohli look to establish himself as a batsman in English condition and his form will guide India overseas progress in the test matches. Though Joe Root also look to make a mark in the test series after a poor Ashes and recent failures in test series.
India have good limited over series to get used to the English condition. They manage to win the T20 series but failed to capitalize in ODI and were defeated by the hosts. The unavailability of Bhubaneswar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah for the first test will definitely weakened the Indian bowling attack. While there are few options available in form of pace attack as Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Shami and Ishant Sharma as a backup option for India going to a long tour. While Umesh Yadav will be picked ahead of Shami due to current form. With a bowling speed of 145 km/h he will be an asset for the test series. The top order failure against Essex in practise match and Dhawan pair will create issues in Indian camo ahead of first test.
England do not have good results in test cricket recently with no series win in last three tours including the home test against Pakistan finishing on 1-1. They were defeated by Aussies in the Ashes by 4-0 then they lost to Kiwis by 1-0. Chris Woakes absence will be void to fill as the allrounder is recovering from injury. Adil Rashid inclusion in the squad is a wise choice as his record is very good in limited over format. Well Rashid has given up red ball cricket for his county and the selection in test squad has not pleased former players but the team mates are very happy with his return. Alastair Cook show his form against India A by smashing 180 runs.
While England are playing their 1000th test, Joe Root men will be looking to celebrate special occasion with a win in first test as the condition are much in favour of the hosts. India is still searching for their opening combination as their s debate between Lokesh Rahul or Shikhar Dhawan to play with Murali Vijay. There is also good battle of place between Indian veteran off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and leggie Kuldeep Yadav.
