The Indian Men’s cricket team will soon pack their bags and make the trip to England for India tour of England next month. As the Men in Blue take on the three lions in what promises to be an edgy affair, Indian fans can be sure to catch the games live on OTT from the comforts of their homes or even on the road.
India and England met earlier last year, but the fifth test match, which was supposed to be played in Manchester, was postponed indefinitely. This decision was made after COVID-19 scares in the Indian camp. As India travel to England again, the rescheduled fifth test match will take place first, and will happen in Edgbaston. India is currently leading the test series with 2-1. The game will start at 3:30 PM IST.
Following the test match, which could have a big impact on the series, India and England will face each other in three T20s and three ODIs. The first T20 will take place on July 7 at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. The second and third games of the shorter format will happen on July 9 and July 10. The first and third T20 games will begin at 11:00 PM IST while the second T20 starts at 7:00 PM IST.
The three ODIs will happen after the T20 games are concluded. June 12, June 14 and June 17 are when the three one-day games will take place. While the first game starts at 3:30 PM IST, the last two games will begin at 5:30 PM IST.
The BCCI has already announced the Indian squad for the one off test game against England. While Rohit Sharma captains the side, KL Rahul will travel as the vice captain. Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohd Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Prasidh Krishna make up the rest of the squad.
The rescheduled test, 3 T20s and 3 ODIs as India travel to England will be available to stream on SonyLIV and fans can catch all the games live on the website and the app.
