After winning the historic series in Australia, the Indian team will face the challenge of the England team at home. England will play a series of four Tests in the tour, which starts on 5 February. Though the Indian team was considered a contender for 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.
The Indian team will have to come up with the right strategy for England’s fast bowling attack. England have three great fast bowlers, James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Joffra Archer. But of the three, James Anderson could be the most dangerous, said former England spinner Monty Panesar. According to Panesar, Anderson has experience bowling against Indian batsmen and can do well.
More than 100 runs scored against India
The figures also agree with Panesar’s opinion. Anderson is England’s leading wicket-taker against India. Anderson has taken 110 wickets in 27 Tests against India. His best performance is 5 wickets for 20 runs. So the Indian batsmen will have to bat better against Anderson in the upcoming series.
India-England clash in February
England will play a series of 4 Tests, 5 T20s and 3 ODIs on the upcoming tour of India. The tour will start with a Test match in Chennai from February 5. As both the teams are in good form, this series will be exciting for all cricket lovers. For India, a number of key players, including regular skipper Virat Kohli, are set to return to the series. Everyone is hopeful that the Indian team will do well in this crucial series for the World Test Championship.
