The interesting thing is that even though the matches of the series will be played at a gap of almost one year, but it will be recorded as a single series in the record list. On the other hand, when 4 matches were played, Team India was captained by Virat Kohli, while England was commanded by Joe Root. Now the climate of both the teams has also changed. Rohit Sharma is the captain of India and Ben Stokes is leading England. The coaching staff of both the teams have also changed.
Those who talked about clean sweep got a befitting reply
When the Indian team reached the tour, it first played the title match of the ICC World Test Championship against New Zealand, where it was defeated. After this, the former England cricketer started undermining the Indian team and started talking about clean sweep. Here Virat Kohli’s team returned to the field in a scintillating fashion and took a 2-1 lead in the series. Even before the last match, Team India’s sting started ringing, cricket experts from all over the world started talking about India’s victory.
Fear of defeat for England, condition to complete test series
England was not digesting this thing. He was eager to level the series. In such a situation, the Indian players had to return due to the Kovid explosion, so he put a condition that when India returns, he will have to complete the series first. According to the same condition, India will play a Test match before 3 ODIs and 3 T20s. However, this time the former captain Michael Vaughan is a bit calm, because he knows that if India wins then he will be the most troubled.
