The much-anticipated series of the year is here. England-India Test series is set to begin at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on August 4. The two teams had played a series earlier this year, in which England was dominated by India. India won that series by a margin of 3-1. 

India’s previous few tours to England have not been too successful with the visitors losing 4-0 in 2011, 3-1 in 2014, and 4-1 in 2018. However, this could be a good chance for them to rewrite history. England are coming into this series after a 1-0 loss against New Zealand earlier this year.
