After winning the historic series in Australia, the Indian team will face the challenge of the England team at home. Both the teams will play a series of much-talked-about 4 Tests in the tour starting February 5. Although the Indian team was considered a contender for victory in the series, England had won the recent tour of Sri Lanka 2-0. Therefore, it is decided that there will be a fierce struggle between the two teams. There is good news for the England team and some challenging news for the Indian team. England star Johnny Bairstow will be available for the last three matches against India.
Bairstow was rested for the first 2 games. But now the England team has made it clear that Bairstow will play in the last 3 matches. The decision to rest Bairstow was criticized by several former veteran cricketers as England team management.
The second highest run scorer against Sri Lanka
Bairstow is currently in excellent form, having scored 139 runs at an average of 46.33 in the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. He also became the second highest run scorer in the series against Sri Lanka after Joe Root. Therefore, if Bairstow returns to the team, the England team will definitely get stronger.
The tour will start with the Chennai Test
England will play a series of 4 Tests, 5 T20s and 3 ODIs against India. The tour will start with a Test match in Chennai from February 5. With both the teams in excellent form, the series will be a thriller for all cricket fans. For India, a number of key players, including regular skipper Virat Kohli, are set to return to the series. This Test series is going to be important for the World Test Championship.
