India won the T20I series while England won the ODI series to set up a delicious five-match Test series that begins on August 1. And all the England v India betting tips & predictions for every game on the tour will be updated here along with the latest odds for the series.
Who will win this Test series between two of the best Test-playing sides in the world? Will England struggle to make it work for them at home or will India’s poor overseas record come to the fore again?
The last time these two sides met in a series was in India where England were crushed by a combination of a strong Indian batting line-up at home and a spin attack that garnered momentum as the series progressed.
As a result, England, who had acquitted themselves so wonderfully on their previous tour of India – winning it 2-1 – and did so well to draw the opening Test of this series, were plundered in the next four Tests, losing 4-0.
England’s performances in this format of the game, even at home in recent times, haven’t been the best. They were held to a 1-1 draw and their pain areas include finding an opening partner for Alastair Cook, getting their spin combination right and the pitches during the series which might end up helping the slower bowlers because of the drought situation in the country.

Since their previous India series, England are on some sort of a losing streak, having not won a single Test away from home and while this is a home series, captain Joe Root wouldn’t want to add to their issues. But that’s the story of their red ball cricket.
India are coming off interesting times too. They are the number one side in the Test match world but some might argue it’s thanks to the number of Tests they have played at home. As a result, India are now staring down the barrel with a barrage of overseas tours – they played South Africa earlier and now take on England before embarking upon a tour of Australia later this year.
What should help the Indian side is their result against South Africa earlier this year. They lost the first two Tests but were very much in it in the first game before collapsing on the final day. However, they came back well to win the third Test on a brute of a pitch and will take that confidence.
