England have recently whitewashed New Zealand in a 3-match Test series and are now looking to defeat India in the fifth rescheduled Test. The hosts have the form, momentum, right combination, and home advantage. Meanwhile, India are in a spot of bother with their captain testing positive for COVID-19. If Rohit Sharma fails to recover in time, India will have to field a completely new opening pair.

The middle order, however, is sorted with Vihari, Kohli, and Iyer occupying the 3rd, 4th, and 5th batting positions. The 4-day warm-up game against Leicestershire might have helped India to an extent. Regardless of the result, it is going to be a really interesting game of cricket with both teams going full-throttle.
