The five-match Test series between India and England will take place this week. With this series, the second season of the World Test Championships will begin. Many veterans have been keeping an eye on the series, as there is worldwide acclaim when any team goes to England and the team performs well. Former Australian spinner Nathan Howitz has said that the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant will play a key role in the series.

Before the Test series between India and England, fans of both teams and many senior players from around the world are very excited. The first match of the Test series between India and England will be played in Nottingham from 4 August. Speaking to The Times of India, Horitz said, “Pant is a dynamic and aggressive player who slowly retrieves the game while maintaining his grip on lower order batting.” They develop further with age. With age comes maturity in them and hopefully they learn from their mistakes.

“I think the series is dominated by the bowler,” said Horitz, who has played 17 Tests, 58 ODIs and 3 T20s for Australia. Indian batsmen did not perform well in the WTC final but there is class in this batting lineup. We can’t expect Virat to do well in the long run. I’m sure the runs will come off his bat in this series.
After the first match at Nottingham, the second match will be played at Lord’s Ground between August 12-16, which is considered the ‘Mecca of Cricket’. In addition, the third match will be played at Headingley between 25-29 August, the Kennington Oval on the fourth 2-6 September and the fifth and final match at Old Trafford Ground between 10-14 September.
