Captain Virat Kohli-led team India is currently on a tour of England for a five-match Test series against the mighty England, set to start from Wednesday, August 4. India vs England 1st Test match will be played in Nottingham. When it comes to Test cricket, England has a big advantage over the Men in Blue, so this series is not going to be an easy one for Virat and Co. England will go into this series without their star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has taken an indefinite break from cricket due to his mental health.
Ahead of the Ind vs Eng 1st Test, injury to some players of team India has increased the concern of the Indian team management. Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan have been ruled out of India’s tour of England after sustaining injuries. India have included Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw as replacements, but both of them will most likely won’t be able to play in the first two Tests.
