India had last savored success on the English soil in 2007 when Rahul Dravid-led team won the three-match series 1-0.
However, the visitors have faced ignominious defeats of 4-0 and 3-1 on their last two tours. Thus, a confident Virat Kohli-led team, who is at the top of the ICC Test rankings, will like to turn the tide.

England vs India 2018.
Indian fast bowlers had scalped all the 60 wickets on the South African tour. Thus, they would be confident of a good show. However, the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is going to leave a big void.
Therefore, the onus would be on the likes of Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Shami. In fact, India will also like to fire at all cylinders with the bat. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was the lone warrior on the South African tour.
Therefore, the other batsmen will like to provide support to their captain. Furthermore, Virat Kohli will want to get past his previous tour hoodoo. Consequently, the Indian captain will like to add a successful tour of England to his impressive cricket CV.
India would like to tick the right boxes.
On the other hand, England had a leveled series with Pakistan recently. Consequently, the hosts will like to continue their home domination over the visitors. Joe Root had scored two back to back centuries in the One Day Internationals series. Thus, the English Test captain will be confident as far as his form is concerned.

In fact, Root had failed to convert his starts in the recent past. Therefore, his good performance in the ODI series would have done a world of good. Furthermore, Alastair Cook scored a fine century against India A., and the former skipper would like to continue his good run.
On the other hand, India will like to get their selection right for the first Test. The number one side in the red ball form had made some surprising decisions on the South African tour. Therefore, they would like to get the best XI on the field.
However, the visitors might face selection headaches before the first Test kickstarts. Kuldeep Yadav has made a strong case for himself following his limited-overs leg performance.
India will not like to drop Ravichandran Ashwin straight away. Meanwhile, three fast bowlers are expected to make the cut into the playing XI.
Furthermore, India will also hold on their catches in the slips. Slip catching has been India’s Achilles Heel for some time. Subsequently, the tourists will like to plunge on their catches in the slip cordon.
