IND vs ENG 5th Test: The long India vs England test series has now reached its climax with both teams gearing up for the one final challenge – Dharmshala.

This article brings to you the IND vs ENG 5th Test: HPCA Dharmshala Rain Prediction, Weather Forecast for India vs England Test And Pitch Report | England tour of India 2024.

The five-match India vs England test series began with the visitors producing a shocker for the hosts in Hyderabad late in January. The Rohit Sharma-led Team India was stunned by the Englishmen in Hyderabad by 28 runs.

However, the comeback following the defeat has been nothing less than a sight for sore eyes. With a pretty young and inexperienced squad, India has managed to rack up three wins on the trot against the full-strength English side that defeated India in the series opener.

Rohit and Co won the second fixture in Vishakhapatnam by 106 runs and followed it with a record-shattering win by 434 runs in the third game held in Rajkot. The last held fixture was also won by India by 5 wickets to pocked the five-match test series against England with an unassailable lead of 3-1.

Though the IND vs ENG test series is already done and dusted, HPCA Dharmshala’s contest between the two sides brings some exciting challenges. Crucial ICC WTC Points will be on the cards as the two sides turn up for the 5th India vs England test on March 07 in Dharmshala.

The surface in Dharmshala throws up a completely different challenge for the players. It’s the surface, unlike many Indian pitches, which keeps the bowlers on the run.

Let’s now take a look at IND vs ENG 5th Test: HPCA Dharmshala Pitch Report:

IND vs ENG 5th Test: HPCA Dharmshala Pitch Report

As per the reports, the HPCA Dharmshala pitch for the IND vs ENG 5th test will be a slow turner. The track will have enough bounce and carry for the pacers to remain in the game throughout the proceedings of the test. The spinners, however, will have their say in the game as the innings proceed.

With weather conditions, there are good chances of the ball deceiving the batters in the air on day one of the test. The English pacers will fancy themselves taking the new ball on the opening day and initiate damage.

In the only test played here, India defeated Australia by 8 wickets. The bowlers remained the key stakeholders in the game.
