According to the record, India are leading the series 2-1 and now they can’t lose the series, while England desperately need a win to prevent a home turf loss. But England’s recent form in Test cricket under Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum is quite a level above. India too had a fine home series against Sri Lanka. However, it is hard to overlook the recent perfomance of England. We will pick England as the winner in the India vs England Test.
