The England vs India test series of 2018 is just a couple of hours away. India, the top-ranked team in Test cricket, begins its challenging Test series against fifth-placed England at 3:30pm today, August 1. The series comprises five Test matches, with the first Test match scheduled in Birmingham. If you want to watch England vs India in India, there are quite a few choices for you. India, led by Virat Kohli, has recently finished a long home season where strong performances against all teams vaulted the team to the top spot. England, captained by Joe Root, has a miserable record away from home and the team has been on overseas tours for quite some time.
India has not won a series in England since the 2007 team came up on top under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid. In the last England vs India series, back in 2014, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team had lost the five-match series 3-1, with one match ending in a draw. Past records notwithstanding, the England vs India test series will be gruelling for both sides as the tournament will go from early August to mid-September.
