Ind Tour of Eng 2021: Players To Watch Out For
Both the teams, India and England, have some ace players in their squads that will undoubtedly be a treat to watch during the Ind Vs Eng upcoming matches. Both of the squads face equal pressure when it comes to showcasing a tough and strategised gameplay on the cricket pitch. It is a crucial Test series for the Indian cricket team who haven’t won a Test series in the host country for over 14 years now. The middle-order of the opposite seems to be rocky with the latest exit of Ben Stokes. Both the teams have to step-up their game in the England Vs India 2021 Test series. With this, let us have a look at the players to watch out for in the Ind Tour of Eng 2021-
The powerful middle-order Indian batsman has the capability to sway the game in India’s favour in just one session. We expect Rishabh Pant to showcase the same gameplay India Vs England 2021 Test series we witnessed earlier when the two teams went head-to-head. He will also be the team's designated keeper throughout the Ind Vs Eng upcoming matches.
James Anderson is England’s most lethal bowler against team India in the Ind Tour of Eng 2021. The 38-year-old cricketer has picked up 118 wickets at an average of 25.30, including a best of 5/20 against India. We expect him to bring his best form in the England Vs India 2021 Test series as well.
The 34-year-old Indian off-spinner has an unbeatable flair of picking up wickets. He has been a part of 7 Tests in England, picking up 18 wickets at an average of 28.11. Along with wicket-hauling, Ashwin is good with the bat as well and we expect him to be at the top of his game in the Ind Vs Eng upcoming matches.
After the exit of Ben Stokes, the Englishmen lack batting prowess in the team. Joe Root is a batting master of the side and their best option against spin. It will be interesting to watch him and Jasprit Bumrah on the pitch against each other in the India Vs England 2021 Test series. He is one of the players to watch out for from team England.
The sensational Indian skipper emerged as the top-scorer, amassing 593 runs that included two centuries and an innings of 97 the last time he toured the host country. With a slight dip in results in the 2014 tour of England, Kohli has been on an improvement regime. We expect him to be in his absolute best form with Rohit Sharma at his side in the Ind Tour of Eng 2021.
