IND vs ENG will be one of the toughest challenges for an Indian cricket team. With the way England has played since the last one year, it’s fair to say that to beat them, it’ll be a lot of work. However, the Indian team are exceptional in their conditions and would be hoping to extend their dominant run. 

Coming to the Indian squad, it is expected that Rohit Sharma will be captaining the team in IND vs ENG and also be one of the openers in the team. He has been India’s best batter in the Test since last one year and will be crucial for the team in the entire series. 

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal are expected to be the other two openers in the team. While Gaikwad is yet to make his debut, Jaiswal has asserted his authority in whatever small amount of cricket that he has played.

Shubman Gill has been India’s new No.3 in Tests and it is expected that he will bat against England at that position. Virat Kohli a brainer will be key for India in the middle order. Apart from him, Shreyas Iyer is also likely to be there in the middle order for IND vs ENG.

There have been several reports which have suggested that Rishabh Pant will be making his coming through the IND vs ENG series. If he is back, it’s likely that he will be the keeper in the team alongside KL Rahul. The right-hander will play as a keeper-batter against South Africa and it’s expected that he will play the same role in IND vs ENG. 

Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin are expected to be the two spin-bowling all-rounders in the team. They will be vital assets for India in the IND vs ENG. Along with them, it is expected that Kuldeep Yadav will be the third spinner in the team. Axar Patel might also cut into the team because he has been lethal in Indian conditions. 

Since pacers don’t play a big role in India, it is likely that team will take only three seamers. Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are expected to be the three frontline bowlers in the team.
