Test 2022 5th India Vs England Match Prediction

India vs England Match Preview

Team India is eyeing a rare series win in England as they haven’t won a Test series in England since 2007. India is currently leading the series 2-1 and it is a great opportunity for them to end this losing streak. The 5th Test in 2021 was postponed due to some Covid-19 cases in the Indian camp.

Earlier this match was rescheduled to take place at Old Trafford, Manchester, but now it has been shifted to Birmingham which has proved an unlucky venue for India so far in history as they have never tasted success here.

England is looking like a completely different Test side under the leadership of their new skipper Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullam. The pair of Stokes and McCullam had an excellent start to their new roles as England whitewashed the ICC Test Championship winners New Zealand by 3-0. England played with a destructive approach and became the first team in history to successfully chase down a target of 250 plus in three consecutive matches. They were playing Tests like One Day Internationals in this series and now we can say that England has given a message to world cricket that they are going to evolve Test cricket.

Meanwhile, India played their last Test series in March against Sri Lanka where they won by 2-0. Rishabh Pant was awarded Player of the series for his excellent performance while Shreyas Iyer was the star for India in the 2nd and final Test match of that series. This Test match against England is a part of the 2021 series in which India was looking good and was leading the series by 2-1. But now it will be difficult for India to face this English side which is in red-hot form. Kl Rahul is not a part of the squad due to injury and the skipper Rohit Sharma will also probably miss this game due to COVID-19.

India vs England Pitch Report

The pitch at Edgbaston is a balanced surface that usually assists both the batters and bowlers. The fast bowlers will get some swing early on with the new ball and the batters will have to play carefully and sensibly early in their innings. As the Test match proceeds, the spinners will also play a big part in this game.

Weather Report

The temperature in Birmingham on an opening day is expected to hover around between 11 to 18 degrees Celsius. There will be a cloud cover throughout the Test match and might also see some rain interruptions during this match. There is more than a 50 percent chance of rain on the 1st two days while the last three days will be cloudy with less than a 20 percent chance of rain.

Head to Head record at this venue

The English team has played 53 Tests at Edgbaston. They have won 28 of them, lost 10, and drawn the remaining 15. On the other hand, India has featured in 7 matches at this venue and they have lost 6 and drawn 1 game. Hence, India has never won a single Test match at this venue.

India vs England Key Batters for Both Sides

Here are the key batsman for both India and England in this Test match;

Joe Root for England

Joe Root has been in magnificent form since 2021. He was also in great form in the recently concluded series against New Zealand. He scored two hundred in the first two games while he smashed an unbeaten 86-run knock in the 3rd Test. Joe Root will be the key batter in this match for England.

Chateshwar Pujara for India

Pujara was excellent in the county championship and he has been performing in these conditions for the last couple of months. Pujara slammed four tons including two double tons in the county championship and he was among the top run-scorers in the tournament. He has a record on English soil so, he can score a big knock for India in this match.

India vs England Key Bowlers for both sides

The key bowlers for both India and England in this Test match are given below;

Jack Leach for England

Jack Leach looked good in the previous series against New Zealand. He is the only spinner in England’s squad for the match against India. Leach picked up a 10-wicket haul in the previous match against the blackcaps as he claimed fifers in both innings of the 3rd Test match. Although India plays spin well he can still create trouble for the Indian batters in this game.

Jasprit Bumrah for India

Jasprit Bumrah is the front-line bowler for team India. In case, Rohit doesn’t recover, Bumrah might also lead the Indian side in the 5th Test. He was also the main bowler for India in the first 4 games of this series in 2021 as he picked up 18 wickets at an average of almost 21.

India vs England Who Will Win

India is leading the series 2-1 and now they at least can’t lose this series but England desperately needs a victory to prevent a home series defeat after 15 years against India. England’s recent form in Test cricket under Stokes and McCullum is unbelievable and they are not the same team that team India faced in 2021.

It will be quite difficult for team India to beat this England side which is looking in red-hot form. Hence, we predict that England will win their 5th Test match against India.
