The stylish England batter Dawid Malan thinks the one-off test starting on July 1 between India and England is a 50-50 affair. Let us have a look at India Squad against England.

Both the giants of world cricket are set to face each other in the fifth test of last year’s series, which India lead by 2-1. The last game of the 5-match test series at Old Trafford last year was cancelled due to increase in Covid-19 cases in Indian camp and Edgbaston will now host the game from July 1.

“It is tough to tell who will win. India is 2-1 up already. They have proven themselves to be tough to beat across conditions. They have been fantastic over the years. England is also under new leadership, new coach, and Captain Ben Stokes. They have played some unbelievable cricket. It will be a different challenge to both sides,” Malan told ANI.

“Both teams are under new leadership. It is 50-50 at the moment (in terms of who will win the match). But if I pick one. It will be England just based on how Stokes is leading at the moment,” he added.

When India played against England last year, Virat Kohli was the captain of the Indian team. While Ravi Shastri was the head coach. A lot have changed from then as Virat left his captaincy. And now Rohit Sharma is the captain of team India in all formats.

The tenure of Ravi Shastri was completed after the T20 World 2021. And after that Rahul Dravid was appointed as the new head coach of team India.
