About the series:
The Men in Blue boast an impressive record at home, with no team managing to win a Test series on Indian soil. The last instance of a series of defeats for India at home occurred in 2012, and it was the English side that emerged victorious.
With a clean record, the Indian side is eager to maintain their winning streak at home, while England will look to challenge and disrupt their dominance. The upcoming series promises an exciting clash as England aims to upend the hosts and achieve their own 'Bazball' moment in Indian cricket history.
