The fourth Test of the four-match Test series between India and England will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. We will cover IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
India and comebacks have become the new standard these days. After losing by a considerable margin in the first Test, India performed brilliantly in the next two matches. It never gave any chance for England to make a comeback in the 3rd test match and India beat the visitors in under 2 days.
Rohit and Shubman Gill have been batting well throughout the series, and Rohit already has a hundred in this series. He has been the main difference for scoring runs in between both the teams. At No.3, Chetweshwar Pujara has batted decently but is yet to play a big inning in this series.
The long wait for Kohli’s century continues, and everyone expects a hundred from him in the last Test. Ajinkya Rahane, after his hundred in the Melbourne Test, has been struggling a lot to score runs. Only in the second Test, he managed to score a fifty.
Wicket-keeper batsman Rishab Pant‘s recent performance has been brilliant, but they got out early in the last match. Ravichandran Ashwin played a brilliant inning with the bat and bowled very, and he continued his bowling form in the third Test picking up 7 wickets.
India’s best thing has been the debut of Axar Patel, who has perfectly covered the void of Jadeja not playing the series and has already picked up 18 wickets in just two test matches. Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar did not get many chances as Ashwin and Axar picked up almost all the wickets.
The pacers also have been tested very little in this series. Ishant Sharma and Bumrah have bowled well whenever they got a chance.
India needs a draw to qualify for the WTC finals, but India would be aiming for a win by going through the recent performances.
After their first win, England has not been able to come out of the spin web by the Indian players and have struggled a lot for scoring runs and bad team selection. They went with just one spinner in the last match where the pitch was made especially for the spinners.
Zak Crawley, who replaced Rory Burns, batted decently in the first inning but got out early in the second innings. Sibley also performed well in some of the innings but was not that effective in the last match. At No.3, Bairstow played his first match of the series, and he got out for a duck in both innings.
Skipper Joe Root after his double century in the first Test has appeared to be struggling to handle the spin, and so the case with Ben Stokes, who has given his wicket away every time Ashwin has come to bowl. Ben Foakes has appeared to have an excellent potential to become the wicket-keeper batsman of the England team.
With Moeen Ali gone back to England and Dom Bess not being played, Jake Leach has been the only spinner in the team, and he has been giving his best in every match. Joe Root bowled brilliantly in the last game, picking up a fifer.
Anderson has also picked up wickets at crucial times with his ability to swing the ball. Stuart Broad and Jofra Archer have struggled to pick up wickets so far in this series.
With two back-to-back losses, England has lost the chance for qualifying to the WTC finals, but if they defeat India in the last Test, then India also won’t be eligible for the finals.
India vs England’s head to head records:
