After splitting the Twenty20 International and One Day International Series among them India and England will face off in a five-match Test series next. Captain Virat Kohli will lead the 18-man India squad with wicketkeeper Rishab Pant and hitman Rohit Sharma.
Will Virat Kohli join the select band of Indian captain who has won Test series in England? Can Team India overcome England to win the five-Test series coming up in August-September 2018?
Ajit Wadekar, Kapil Dev and Rahul Dravid are the only ones to have led India to Test series win in England. Kapil Dev marshalled India to victory in two out of the three Tests in 1986. Wadekar’s and Dravid’s teams won one Test each in 1971 and 2007 respectively.
In the new millennium with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virendra Sehwag, VVS Laxman, MS Dhoni, Anil Kumble, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh etc. The Indian team has played 16 Test matches in England, winning three and losing eight. Therefore Kohli has a tough task at hand.
