India vs England 5th Test Preview: Jasprit Bumrah-led India chase history against Ben Stokes & Co.

With Rohit Sharma testing positive for Covid for the second time, Jasprit Bumrah will most likely lead Team India at Edgbaston.

IND vs ENG 5th Test: After a postponement that lasted 10 months, India and England will resume the 5-match Test series with the 5th and final Test at Edgbaston in Birmingham from July 1. The final Test couldn't take place last year due to a Covid outbreak in the Indian camp.

India haven't won a Test series in England since 2007 but they have a golden chance of creating history since they currently lead 2-1 with one match left. Even if the match ends in a draw, India will win the series.

India though suffered a big blow ahead of the Test when Captain Rohit Sharma tested positive for Covid during the warm-up game against Leicestershire. Since then, the Indian skipper has tested positive for the second time in an RT-PCR test. In his absence, Jasprit Bumrah will make his debut as Team India captain in Birmingham. Bumrah will become India's 36th Test skipper when he goes out for the toss on Friday.

With KL Rahul also not in England, it remains to be seen who'll partner Shubman Gill at the top of the order. Whether it'll be Cheteshwar Pujara or KS Bharat remains to be seen.

England, on the other hand, almost have a full-strength squad available. The hosts have been in superb form, having recently won the home series against the World Test Champions New Zealand 3-0.

Under their new coach Brendon McCullum and new captain Ben Stokes, England have looked formidable and they'll be hoping to continue their fantastic run against India as well. Joe Root, captain Ben Stokes & Jonny Bairstow have all been in great form for the Three Lions.

The match was originally scheduled to be played at Old Trafford in Manchester last year but since then, it has been shifted to the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham where India have never won a Test.

India vs England head to head

In the head-to-head record, England have dominated India as they have won 49 out of the 130 Test matches while India have won 31 Tests.
