ENG vs IND Today Match Prediction: There are dreams harboured this week across the street at the other Old Trafford, where India hold a 2-1 series lead and stand on the cusp of a historic series win in England after 14 long years. England on the other hand have lost 6 of their last 9 tests and will be fighting hard to save the series. All in all we are in for a spectacle.
England will be disappointed after the last match performance and have bolstered their squad for this match with the additions of Jos Butler and Leach. Butler will straight up slot in the team while Leach will be the second spinner if conditions demand for it. Mark Wood is also set for a recall, perhaps in place of Craig Overton.
India will be high on confidence after the last match and will have a series win in their sights. Mayank Agarwal and Vihari though will be on standby if either of Rohit Sharma or Cheteshwar Pujara don’t recover adequately from their knee and ankle injuries respectively. Even with the prospects of spin later in the Test, India may not tinker with their 4-1 pace-spin combination that has served them well.
