The highly anticipated five-match Test is all set to begin at the newly renovated stadium in Hyderabad. With the squad that is highly experienced, it also has new youngsters such as Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rajat Patidar, and Dhruv Jurel. India will undoubtedly miss Virat Kohli‘s presence since he has chosen to rest, and it appears like Shubman Gill will bat third. The core bowling group is also back with Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Siraj getting the new ball with Mukesh Kumar added in there as well. The pair of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, once again for the nth number of times, will aim to disrupt ENG batters.
For England, it will be quite exciting to know how they will approach this Test match. Will they go with the traditional approach or apply Bazball theory? Nonetheless, the side is capable of batting in any style with the likes of Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes. With the ball too, legendary James Anderson will try to strike with the new ball while Jack Leach and other spinners will try to maximise from the third day.
India and England have played 131 Test matches against each other in which, India prevailed in 31, while England won 50. Additionally, 50 matches also ended in a draw.
