But everyone knows that the limited overs format was just a dress rehearsal, as both the teams will now face each other for a gruelling 5-match Test series.
Although India have been leading the ICC Test ranking chart based on their exceptional home performances, yet they know that he England tour will bring the best of their abilities.
Only time will tell if this team is capable enough to completely erase the memories of the nightmarish 2014 tour. For now let us look at 4 Indian players whose performance will hold the key for India’s triumph.
4. Ishant Sharma
