Both India and England have announced the squad for the IND vs ENG series. The five games are expected to be exciting because both the teams over the years have played a sensational brand of cricket

India in their home conditions are extremely threatening while England with their Bazball approach has conquered a lot of things. However, their biggest challenge will be against the Rohit Sharma-led side, who haven’t lost a single Test series at home since the last one decade.

With IND vs ENG series just around the corner, it is learned as per the reports in Indian Express that BCCI is all set to prepare rank turners for the series. England batters over the years have struggled against spin and it won’t be good news for them. 

Since the last few home series, India has produced pitches that have started turning from Day 1. This hasn’t allowed opponents to settle and has allowed  Indian spinners to run through the batting lineup of the teams. 

Both teams have some quality spinners in the ranks. It’s expected that both of them will play three spinners in the XI. The challenge will be equally tough for the Indian batters as well. The IND vs ENG series also will be crucial in the context of the ICC World Test Championship
