The last match of the five-Test series between India and England will start from today at the Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham. Four Tests of this series were played last year. Then the fifth match in Manchester has been postponed due to the Corona outbreak. Now the same match will be played 10 months later in Birmingham.

Last year, India were leading 2-1 when the series was postponed. That is, if the Indian team wins this match, then in 15 years it will be its first series win on England soil. However, to achieve this achievement, India will have to change the history of 55 years.

The Indian team landed in Birmingham to play the first Test in 1967. Since then 7 Tests have been held between the two teams at this stadium and India has not won a single match. England won in 6 Tests and one match was a draw.

Rain can disturb the first two days
If there is a Test match in England and there is no chance of rain, the chances of this happening are very less. This time too rain can disturb the match. It may rain in the afternoon on the first day and in the morning session on the second day. From the third day onwards, the chances of rain will decrease continuously.

pitch and conditions
Edgbaston’s pitch is generally good for the batsmen but there is enough help for the bowlers as well. Grass has been seen on the pitch till the day before the match. If there are clouds in the sky and there is little moisture in the pitch, then batting in the first session of the first day can be very difficult.

Chance to win 3 Tests in series for the first time
The Indian team has so far won 2-2 matches in a series in England. But, till now the team has not been able to win three matches of a series there even once. If India wins this test, then this feat will be possible for the first time.

Four fast bowlers or two spinners, decision today
The Indian team management may have to struggle to choose the bowling attack. If the pitch is expected to help the spinners on the fourth and fifth day of the match, then the Indian team can give chances to both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. If there is more help for the fast bowlers, then Shardul Thakur can be given a chance in place of Ashwin.

Playing-11 of both the teams
India (possible)
Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur/Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Mohammad Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah.
