The IND vs ENG Test series will enthrall Indian and English fans. The India vs England Test series begins on Thursday, January 25 with the first Test. The venue for the first IND vs ENG Test is the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
Rohit Sharma will lead the Indian team in the IND vs ENG test series. Sharma failed to lead the team to its first Test victory in South Africa in the previous Test series this month. However, team India also managed to evade defeat.
Team India lost the opening match against South Africa by a huge margin of one innings and 32 runs. However, they bounced back in the second Test to win by 7 wickets. With the draw, India managed to retain its second place in the ICC WTC points table.

The Indian team is missing two key members in Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami. Other key Test players like Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul and Mohammed Siraj are part of the squad for the series against England.
Kuldeep Yadav is also part of the India vs England Test series. However, with the presence of spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel, left-arm spinner Yadav may not get a chance in the first two games.
However, since the India vs England Test series consists of 5 matches, Kuldeep might get opportunities in the upcoming matches. Yadav was a part of the Test series in the past but rarely got a chance to play 11.

England, led by Ben Stokes, will look for a comeback on Indian soil. In last year’s ODI World Cup in India, the English came with one of the worst shows in their history in World Cups. They lost to teams like Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, which was a big surprise in the tournament.
However, when it comes to Tests, England are currently a dominant team in international cricket. They dominated Australia in Ashes 2023 despite a 2-2 series draw. Now, their strength will be tested on Indian soil, where they have always struggled in past test campaigns.
