Treated as the revenge series, India would aim to pay England back in the same style when the two teams renew their cricketing rivalry when they go into what promises to be an engrossing four-match Test from Thursday.

 

India had suffered a humiliating 0-4 series whitewash when they had visited England in July-August last year and would like to avenge the defeat on the back of its spinners in favourable home conditions.

England have not won a Test series in India in nearly 28 years and reversing the trend would a tough job for the world number two team.
