England vs India Predictions


India just need a draw to secure a series win but England are a different side to what they faced when the tour began. Form and confidence is high in England’s squad and India have not played Test cricket since mid-March.

My best bet is an England win.

  • England’s Joe Root has scored 115*, 176 & 86* in his last 3 Test matches.
  • England have won their last 3 Test matches.
  • India’s Rohit Sharma has scored 83, 59 & 127 runs in 3 of his last 5 Test innings’ against England.
  • India have won 5 of their last 7 Test matches against England.

Head to Head


India lead England 5-2 in their last eight Test matches. The current series sees India lead 2-1 with one match to play. 

In the 4th Test of this series India bounced back to win by 157 runs at The Oval. This match was delayed due to COVID infections within the Indian squad.

England Form 


England come into this match off the back of a 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand. The hosts are however 2-1 down in this series with the final fixture having been delayed earlier this year.

Things have changed a bit since the series started. England have a new captain and coach, and if their performance against New Zealand is anything to go by, this could be exciting.

England were not faultless against the Black Caps and could easily have lost all three matches. But they have showed great resilience in chasing down big scores in the fourth innings on all three occasions.

England Injuries & Team News


England have changed much since this series began. Ben Stokes now leads the side but Joe Root remains a pivotal part of the side, as proven in the series win against New Zealand. I don’t expect many changes to the side.

India Form


India lead this series 2-1 and only need a draw secure a series win. That will be a huge feather in the cap of the visitors considering the form England finds themselves in.

India won the fourth Test against England despite suffering a 100-run first innings deficit. Rohit Sharma was the start of that second innings, scoring 127 runs.

Having recently completed the IPL and a T20 series against South Africa and Ireland, India have not played much Test cricket of late.

India Injuries & Team News


Rohit Sharma could miss this match after contracting COVID. He has not been ruled out as yet as a call will be made after another round of testing.
