Teams Preview

India Preview

Team India will be dejected that none of their players were able to score a century in the match. Cheteshwar Pujara (73 runs), Virat Kohli (74 runs), Rishabh Pant (91 runs), Washington Sundar (85* runs), and Shubman Gill (50 runs) scored half-centuries but none continued to make a big score. Rohit Sharma & Ajinkya Rahane failed to make a good score in both the innings. 

Homeboy Ravi Ashwin was the star with the ball claiming 9 wickets with a second innings 6-for in the match. Pacers Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah bowled their heart out in the docile pitch and claimed 7 wickets in the match. Kuldeep Yadav will replace Shahbaz Nadeem in this fixture and Washington Sundar might also be left out for Axar Patel.

Top players to bet on:

Virat Kohli – Kohli looked determined in his 74-run knock in the second innings. He will look to lead his team from the front with a big score in this match and help his team post a massive first innings score on board.  

Ravi Ashwin – Ashwin was phenomenal with the ball claiming a match haul of 9/207 and bowled more than 70 overs in the match. He also made a vital contribution of 31 runs with the bat in the first innings.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane,  Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravi Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar/Axar Patel

England Preview

England Skipper Joe Root led the team from the front with his massive 218 runs in the first innings.  Dom Sibley and Ben Stokes made valiant contributions with their 80+ knocks while the lower middle order chipped with crucial 20s & 30s in the match. Ben Foakes will replace Jos Buttler in the playing XI in this match.

Jack leach and Dom Bess were good & bad in patches but claimed a combined tally of 11 wickets across both innings. James Anderson and Jofra Archer claimed 5 & 3 wickets in the match to provide a breakthrough in a crucial period.  England might give Stuart Broad a match time ahead of any one of their lead pacers in this game.

Top players to bet on:

Joe Root – Root got in third straight Man Of the match award for his performance of 218 runs. He will look to score more runs continuously to help his team win more matches in this series.       

James Anderson – Anderson produced a masterclass in reverse swing on the last day of the match claiming three important wickets for his team. His stump shattering in swingers to Gill and Rahane were a treat to the eyes for any fast bowler.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley/Dan Lawrence, Rory Burns, Joe Root (C), Ben Stokes, Ben Foakes (wk), Dom Bess, Jack Leach, Jofra Archer/Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Ollie Pope

Weather Conditions

Chennai is expected to have a hot and humid climate on all the match days. No rain or weather interruptions are expected in this match. Spectators are allowed for the first time since COVID in this match up to 50% occupancy.

Venue Details

Chennai track was under scrutiny for his flat nature on the first 2-3 days of the match providing nothing for the bowlers. The pitch deteriorated as the match progressed in days 4 & 5. We expect a better pitch which responds to the bowlers in this match.

Toss: To Bat

First Innings score is vital to victory in the Test matches in sub-continent and we expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.

IND vs ENG Winning Prediction

India is a champion team that has proved to bounce back from defeats in a grand fashion and we expect them to make a strong comeback in this match. They will need to bat more sensibly and post a big score in the first innings in this match. England will be high on confidence after their win but rely heavily on the likes of Root and Stokes in the batting department. England spinners leaked runs at a high rate in parts of the match and must look to maintain discipline with their line and lengths in this match. We expect India to win this match and level the series.

INDIA will win the match and level the series 1-1
