India vs England

The England tour of India will be a long and pleasing one for all cricket fans around the world especially the Indian people can not wait to have some taste of the big home season that’s coming up for them. New grounds are getting ready, the pink ball test is all set to stage a comeback in the Indian home turf and India vs England is all set to bring you all kinds of nostalgia from over the years of the Hindi-English rivalry. Not just this, post the tournament later this year we have a switch of venues and India Cricket Team will be touring England for the English summer of cricket and will be ready to take on some typical English conditions.

India vs England 2021 : The England Tour of India

The English team is here for a long IND vs ENG season at the home turf of the Indians where they will be playing 4 test matches, 5 T20 International matches and 3 One day international games. With the approach being a screen test before the huge T20 world cup kick starts later this year in India itself, this tour will make a lot of sense to both these teams and that is why the International Cricket Council has drafted 5 T20 Games in this series. 

Over the years, England haven’t had the best away series in India and have completely been rolled over by the Indian batsmen and due to the lack of spin bowling expertise in the past, they have faced few major problems. However, this time around they have the likes of Adil Rashid & Moeen Ali who can spin the ball and Ali has had decent experience of the Indian conditions during the Indian T20 league so expect this series to be a cracking one with a league of superstars in all formats of the game.

IND vs ENG: Top Players To Watch Out for in the Entire IND vs ENG tour of 2021

Virat Kohli

Even after having scored the most number of half centuries in 2020, believe us when we say Virat Kohli was said to be out of form. These are the standards set for the world’s greatest batsman of this era. India vs England will be special for Kohli because the first time he led India in a limited overs series was against the same team way back in the year 2017 after MS Dhoni gave him the captaincy. That time in the very first game, he and Kedar Jadhav scored amazing centuries and chased a mammoth target of 300 plus in style. Averaging 62 in ODIs, 50 in T20Is and 53.4 in test cricket, King Kohli is living in a league of his own so his class will put on an amazing display in this home season. He is hungry for runs as in 2020 he wasn’t able to cross the 100 run-mark and with a big home season coming in, his eyes will be lit up on this mouth watering ind vs eng series that has come as an opportunity for him.

Rohit Sharma

A limited overs legend, Rohit Sharma has recently earned his badge of honour in test cricket as well. Now being one of the mainstays of the Indian squad, IND vs ENG series will see a different Rohit Sharma altogether dominating the English bowlers across formats. However, it will be interesting to see how he handles the pressure of being against the mighty duo of Anderson & Broad under home conditions. Rohit holds the record of 3 double centuries in One day cricket which is crazy and considering this record he is being anticipated to break the record of 400* of the great Brian Lara in test cricket. The ind vs eng series might just be the opening Rohit Sharma had been looking for to make a strong comeback after not so much show happened for him in 2020.

Jos Buttler

He trains to finish the game, chase big totals and make some blitzing shots all round the park. Buttler can easily be called as one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen in today’s cricketing world. England has been a quality side for the past few years and majorly it has been because of the kind of quality players the team possesses. One such mainstays in the English squad is Jos Buttler who has always been rocking behind the wickets as he has been in front of the wickets. The Indian bowlers will have to be wary of their line and length when bowling to Jos because he is very well versed with the Indian conditions considering his stint with the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian T20 league format.

Joe Root

Among the greats of this era: Kohli, Williamson, Steve Smith, their comes the 4th contender by the name of Joe Root. A test batsman completely now, Root has led England to an amazing home season in the recent past and is someone who not only knows how to choose his options but has a habit of leading from the front. Joe Root averages 48 in test cricket which says a lot about his resilience and dependency in the current English squad. The IND vs ENG series will also see England pulling off their multiple squads for different formats-theory in Indian conditions as well but let’s see how it goes further in the season. Joe Root and Virat Kohli will be up against in this Ind vs Eng test cricket series and it is going to be a treat to watch the two of the best up against each other.

Jasprit Bumrah

When looking for a wicket in no matter which format you are playing for India, you always turn to this man: Boom Boom Bumrah. However, Jasprit Bumrah will be competing against his contemporary greats like Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Jofra Archer and he will be up against the Stokes’ and the Morgans and the Roots and the Bairstows! The ultimate show of skill of his bowling will come out in the ind vs eng series at home where he will be seen knocking off the English batsmen and helping India go through some crucial wins before the T20 World Cup arrives later this year.
