 IND Key Players:

 Rohit Sharma:
Rohit Sharma played two matches in Australia and looked really solid. His ability to score quickly makes him a massive asset for India. He’s a fantastic record in India and will look to play few big innings in the series. 

 Virat Kohli:
There is not much to say about the class of Kohli. Often termed as a run machine, Kohli has been in fine form of late. He was India’s highest scorer when England toured India in 2016-17. He’ll once again be the biggest wicket for Root and co.

 Ravi Ashwin:
Ashwin was terrific against Australia. On these wickets, he’ll be even more dangerous. He’s most likely to be the highest wicket-taker of the series.

 ENG Key Players: 

 Joe Root:
He’ll be the biggest hope of England in this series. He’s fresh from terrific series against Sri Lanka where he scored a double hundred and a hundred in the two matches. He will look to carry on his form against India as well. 

 Ben Stokes:
Everything Stoked have touched in the last two years have turned into gold. He’s in great form and will be very important for England.

 Jofra Archer:
Wickets with the new ball is the key to success in India and Archer being the lead pacer for England will look to give England some early breakthroughs.


 Team Forms: 

 IND Team Form: 
India will be high on confidence after a magnificent 2-1 win over Australia in Australia.

 ENG Team Form: 
England thrashed Sri Lanka 2-0 in their last series.
