England Vs India Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Tips: England Vs India 5th Test
Last September, India were on the verge of playing the fifth and final Test of the Pataudi Trophy against England in Manchester. But fears of a COVID-19 outbreak at the visitors’ camp meant the series finale was rescheduled for July 1-5 at Edgbaston in Birmingham in 2022. If the Manchester Test had gone according to plan, India would have been strong favorites to claim the Pataudi Trophy with a 2-1 lead with famous wins at Lord’s (by 151) and The Oval (by 157 runs). England, on the other hand, won by just an innings and 78 runs at Headingley, with Joe Root taking over the batting as well as the captaincy.
But as they say, a year changes a lot, especially in the world of cricket. Australia became T20 Men’s World Cup winners, Katie Martin, Mithali Raj, Amy Satterthwaite, Ross Taylor, Kieron Pollard, William Porterfield, Peter Seelar and Eoin Morgan are no longer international cricketers, the IPL bandwagon saw two new teams and among them Win a novice trophy.
The series against India was then stalled, with England falling to a low level in Test cricket, losing the Ashes 4–0 in Australia, losing 1–0 in the West Indies. Root and Chris Silverwood stepped down as captain and coach, with Ashley Giles and Graham Thorpe becoming managing director men’s cricket and batting coach respectively. The new set-up of Ben Stokes as captain, Brendon McCullum as head coach and Rob Key as managing director of men’s cricket means that England are now a completely different Test team, a positive aspect of cricket. And aggressive branding is playing out, which many would do. t added them.
He recently completed a 3-0 sweep of defending World Test Champions New Zealand, with a daring hat-trick of 250+ scores. His scoring rate was 4.54, the combined average of batsmen at three, four and five is 70.46. They are no longer dependent on root the batter, with Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow stepping up with belligerent innings.
Of the England XI that played for India at The Oval last year, only four survivors will play at Edgbaston – Joe Root (without the captain tag), Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow and James Anderson. There have been many changes for India as well. Virat Kohli is no longer the captain but his leanness is still waiting to be broken. Rahul Dravid is the new head coach after Ravi Shastri quit last year. Paras Mhambrey and Dileep TK are the new bowling and fielding coaches in place of Bharat Arun and R Sridhar.
