India and England both will be playing an essential test series which will consist of 5 matches. And, India therefore will look to continue their dominance over England due to a home advantage of having turning pitches. Earlier Indian skipper Rohit Sharma also gave a bold statement regarding the “rank turners” where he said, “ICC and other Match officials are fine when the pitch offers bounce, swing, or seam but they are unhappy when turning tracks are used, they should be neutral”.
Team India and England both have announced a 16-member Test squad respectively for their upcoming series but India has announced the Squad for the first 2 Tests, and England has named some quality spinners such as a leggie Rehan Ahmed, a left-arm orthodox Tom Hartley, experienced leg spinner Jack Leach, an off-spinner Shoaib Bashir, and the part-timer Joe Root.
So far, the India Test Squad for England 2024 for the first 2 test matches also has a variety of experienced spinners like Ashwin, Jadeja, Axar, and Kuldeep which could be very lethal on the turning pitches so let’s have a look at the India Test Squad for England 2024 Five-match test series.
