India will be squaring up against England in the 1st Test match of the 4-match Test series at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The match will commence on Friday, February 05 at 09:30 AM IST. Here are IND vs ENG Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
IND vs ENG Dream11 Predictions: Preview
The Indian team is fresh from the success in Australia wherein it defeated a full-strength home team convincingly in the 4-match Test series. The fact that India missed many of its frontline players and yet managed to win the series 2-1 hasn’t been lost on anyone. Captain Virat Kohli returns to the side after missing the last 3 Tests against Australia owing to paternity leave. Ajinkya Rahane will be taking over the vice-captaincy role.
Virat Kohli’s return would mean Mayank Agarwal sitting out. This will allow India to play 5 bowlers on home soil too. Pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah is also expected to return while the best spinner in the world, Ravichandran Ashwin will be raring to play at his home ground. The Indian team looks solid and it will be buoyed by the fact that they will be playing at home.
England team on the other hand are high on success too. They whitewashed Sri Lanka on their home turf by defeating them 2-0 in the 2-match Test series. Skipper Joe Root led the team from the front with scintillating centuries in both the Tests. The England team will be banking on their captain to come good against India too. While the likes of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer return to the Test setup. It will be Archer’s maiden Test tour to India and he will be hungry to make an impression. The pace duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad will be key for England. If they have a good series, England will go a long way in this tour.
