England Tour of India 2024 2024 Series Prediction

According to bookmakers, India is considered the ultimate favorites to win this test series by 4-1. England’s struggle on spin-friendly pitches is well-known, and they will once again be tested right from Day 1, where the ball is expected to spin and grip.

India has a strong advantage in their home conditions, with a talented squad that includes world-class spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Their batsmen, including the likes of Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, are experienced and have a good track record against England’s bowlers.

On the other hand, England will face a tough challenge in adapting to the conditions. Their batsmen have historically struggled against quality spin bowling, and their bowlers may find it challenging to take wickets on Indian pitches. However, England’s pace attack, led by James Anderson and Jofra Archer, possesses the ability to trouble the Indian batsmen.

The key to England’s success in this series will be their ability to counter the spin threat and find a way to take early wickets. If they can do that, they have a chance to challenge India and potentially upset the favorites. However, it won’t be an easy task, and they will have to play their best cricket to compete with the Indian team in their home conditions.
