Indian players could be at massive disadvantage in IND vs ENG-

The Indian players could be at a massive disadvantage considering the rainy conditions in the region as majority of the Indian players have been playing white-ball cricket for the last few months.

Only Cheteshwar Pujara has played red-ball cricket in the last couple of months, while he represented Sussex in the English County. Players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant have only played T20 cricket in the last few months with IPL and South Africa’s tour of India.

England on the horizon will come into the contest on the back of a Test series against New Zealand, which will also see them drive momentum as they have sealed the series 2-0 even before the final Test match has started.

  • The Indian team had endured a rough patch when they were last in England and dropped many catches.
