India vs England 2018 :- The Real "Test"

India vs England 2018, one of the most awaiting and popular cricket rivalries around the world. England is the founder of this beautiful sport while in India Cricket is a religion. England always has the finest swing bowlers in the world while India always has been blessed with the batting legends. The rivalry between these two great cricket playing nations is always exciting & full of drama.

Here, we are going to look at,

"India vs England  2018 Series".

India crushed the England side in the 3 match T20 series by the margin of 2-1 while England managed to win ODI series with the same margin. So the series margin is 1-1 at the moment. Now, this test series is going to be a decider between these two teams.

India vs England 2018

  • Batting at its best:-                                                                                                                               
With the services of players like Virat Kohli, Murli Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane and many others, India's batting is looking much superior to England has. But there is a problem, in 2014 series only Vijay managed to cross the 400 runs mark in the series while England's two players Joe Root and Gary Ballance crossed 500 runs in the series. Kohli and Pujara just managed to maintain the average of about 15 in the whole test series. But Kohli is a completely different player now and Pujara's county experience will surely help him to achieve something in this series.

On the other hand, England's batting is at its best at the moment. Root back to back centuries in ODI's and Cook's terrific ton against India-A shows their current form. Jos Buttler is in the best form of his life at the moment. 
Then "how Indian bowlers will tackle this in-form English lineup?" Have a look below;

  • Some lovely swings in the air:-

On green and grassy wickets, you should have good swing bowlers and England has one of the best in the business. James Anderson will be the real threat for Indian players. Other bowlers like Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran will also not going to be easy to handle. 

India also has the best pace attack at the moment. Bhuvi, Shaami, Umesh, Bumrah will be the key for team India. Ishant and Ashwin's county experience will also help team India to achieve their goals in test series. 

But the problem arises in the front of team India before test series is "Injury".

Bhuvi and Bumrah are suffering from some injuries and may miss some of the starting matches of this series.

  • Players to watch out for:-

INDIA:- World no. 2 test batsman and captain of Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli will play the major role in this series. Last time when he travelled with team India in 2014, he just managed to maintain an average of just 15. But after that series, he completely changed himself and performed tremendously in Australia and South Africa. He is surely looking to change the stats in England. As a captain of India, his performance will also give a kind of boost to other Indian players too.

ENGLAND:- Jos Buttler is in form of his life. He is playing the finest cricket of his professional career. From IPL to ODI's against India, his performance has been phenomenal. His place in the test team always remained uncertain but now he is back again with a bang. He will surely play some of his best test knocks in this series. 

So get ready for the entertainment.
