England are one of the most dangerous teams in Test cricket. No matter how strong the team is in English conditions, everyone is forced to kneel before England. England’s fast-paced attack retains the nose of the biggest batsmen on its ground. But, nowadays, the team led by Joe Root has been longing for a victory on its own ground. After losing to New Zealand, Virat Kohli’s army is now weighing heavily on the British team. In their home state, England have not won the last six Tests and the team has suffered twice.

England won their last Test in Pakistan in 2020 against Pakistan. It was the first match of the series and both subsequent Test matches were a draw for Pakistan. Prior to the World Test Championship final after Pakistan, New Zealand won the Test series 1-0, beating the English team, but the first match of the two-match Test series was a draw. After losing the series to the Kiwi squad, England’s status has worsened in a five-Test series against India. Rain at Trent Bridge saved British pride, but the team suffered a crushing defeat at the Lord’s Historic Ground. This means that under English conditions, Joe Root has not seen a winning face since the last 6 Tests. This could definitely affect the team’s performance in the upcoming games.

The third Test of the series between India and England will be played at Headingley Leeds from 25 August. At the same time, Shami and Jamapreet Bumrah teamed up to draw the first match of the series, due to rain. In 2007, India won the last Test series in England under the leadership of Rahul Dravid. This is a great opportunity for India, who have taken a 1-0 lead in the series to defeat the English team in their hometown after 14 years.
