1st Test, Preview: India vs England at Edgbaston
July 31 (CRICKETNMORE) - India will take on hosts England in the first test of the five-match series at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground on Wednesday.
India are No.1 in the ICC Test Team Rankings, while England are No.5. However, Joe Root and his men have the home advantage and will want to make England’s 1000th Test a special one.
India have not won a Test series in England since 2007, achieved under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid. And now under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India are bracing up for a stern test in difficult English conditions.
In this long tour of England, India won the Twenty20 International (T20I) series but lost three-match One-Day International (ODI) rubber.
