India vs England (IND vs ENG) Test Series 2021 Schedule: Joe Root & Co. will be raring to go against India after they were beaten 3-1 on the Indian shores earlier this year. Both the teams have been bested by inaugural World Test champion New Zealand. India lost the WTC final whereas England lost home series against the Kiwis. England have let go of their rest-and-rotation policy and will be playing with a full-strength squad excluding injured Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes and star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has taken an indefinite break from cricket to take care of his mental health and spend time with family.
On the other hand, India will be missing the services of injured Shubman Gill and Washington Sundar. Mayank Agarwal has also been ruled out of the first Test after suffering from a concussion in the practice session. Agarwal was hit on the head by Mohammed Siraj’s bouncer. Reinforcements Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav have also been delayed as they are isolating in Sri Lanka after coming in contact with Covid-positive Krunal Pandya.
