England vs India Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, and Injury Update of 1st Test match.
ENG vs IND 1st Test Match Preview:
The first series of a brand new World Test Championship (WTC) cycle begins with the five-match Test series between England. and India starting on August 4. India are coming off from a bitter eight-wicket loss in the WTC Final against New Zealand. While on the other hand, the hosts too suffered a 1-0 series loss against New Zealand.
With both India and England also having to deal with a fair share of players missing out due to injuries, this series gives a chance to some of the new players to show their mettle.
With Shubman Gill ruled out of the series with a knee injury, followed by Avesh Khan, and Washington Sunder, the management announced replacement players in the form of Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw. But the duo’s inclusion for the first two Test matches at least seems unlikely due to the United Kingdom government’s COVID-19 restrictions and norms.
