The India vs England five match test match series is almost nearing its end as we have only one test match left to go. With the series already in India’s bag, the fifth test match in Chennai is going to be an inconsequential one. As we build up to that match, we bring forward the TV guide and the live streaming details alongside the match preview. Also, there is also the team news and the probable starting lineup which will enable the readers to stay updated before the start of the India vs England fifth test match.
India vs England 5th Test Match: Match Preview
England began the series on a very positive note, but it seems that their campaign has fallen off like nine pins. And with one test match still to be it seems that India are the strong favourites to grab the test match series by a scoreline of 4-0. The fifth test match will be played at Chennai and as the trend goes the pitch is prepared to support spin. The dryness of the pitch makes it suitable for the ball to turn from the second day itself. But with the recent cyclone hitting Chennai it remains to be seen whether the pitch gets prepared before the match or not. But we can expect a bit of swing on the first day because of the moisture that has been retained despite the valiant efforts of the groundsmen to keep it dry. And this will give England a chance to have an impact with the ball in hand. Thus we can expect a strong fight from England in this fifth Test match.
India vs. England 5th Test Match: Team News
No news has been received regarding the injury concerns in either team. England will perhaps be without their star pace bowler Stuart Broad due to injury which has kept him out of the last two tests as well although nothing has confirmed. So it remains to be seen whether Broad gets fit in time or not. It is expected that England will be playing one more spinner and Gareth Batty might get into the playing eleven ahead of Jake Ball.
In the Indian team, there is no news regarding any injury. They will once again miss the service of Mohammad Shami and Wriddhiman Saha who missed the last Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai due to injury. Ajinkya Rahane will also miss out due to the injury.
India (probable line-up): Virat Kohli (c), Vijay, KL Rahul, Pujara, Karun Nair, Parthiv Patel, Ashwin, Jayant Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav
England (probable line-up): Alistair Cook (c), Keaton Jennings, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Gareth Batty and James Anderson
