RAJKOT: Buoyant England will take on world number one Test team India in their on den today, in the first Test at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot, Gujrat.The match will begin at 09:30 local time (04:00 GMT).
England have had difficult times back in Bangladesh where they lost a Test match to Bangladesh for the first time in history, and that too with a huge margin.
Their weak point in Bangladesh was the SPIN. They would have even bitter test in India too, as the spin trio of India have earlier destroyed New Zealand and South Africa on their soil.
In Bangladesh, Alastair Cook had to hide his spinners in his side’s 1-1 draw, a series in which the home spinners took 38 of the 40 England wickets. They are also without James Anderson, one of the finest exponents of reverse swing, for one Test at least.
Still, the English bowling attack lacks quality spinner who can create trouble for Indian batsman.
