After securing an emphatic whitewash against New Zealand in the recently concluded Test series, England are set to take on India in one-off Test match at Edgbaston. The Test match will conclude the series that had commenced back in 2021.

Two teams played out a draw in the first match of the series. The Virat Kohli-led side scripted 151-run victory in the second match to secure a vital 1-0 lead in the series. But the hosts were prompt enough to clinch a comeback after they pulled off a convincing a victory by an innings and 76 runs in the next fixture.

In the penultimate encounter, the visitors displayed a terrific brand of cricket to register 157-run victory and regain their lead in the encounter. Though, the fifth and final match had to be called off due to Covid-19 cases in the Indian team.

In their last five Test meetings, Indian team managed to win three matches as England secured two wins. The remaining one game ended as a draw.

But a lot has changed since the two teams faced each other back in 2021. Both the teams have seen changes in captaincy along with major adjustments in the coaching department.

Team India’s all-format skipper Rohit Sharma was expected to lead the side in the one-off Test against England. But Jaspirt Bumrah, in all likelihood will lead Indian team after Rohit was tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. On the other hand, Rahul Dravid will handle the coaching duties as Ravi Shastri decided to relinquish his duties after the completion of last year’s T20 World Cup.

England team recently appointed Ben Stokes as their new Test captain. England’s newly-appointed Test coach Brendon McCullum is another new face in the side. McCullum, in his first assignment as England coach managed outclass Kiwis 3-0 in the Test series.
