The much-awaited Test series between India and England is here. The four-match series is scheduled to start on February 5. Chennai will host the first two Tests while Ahmedabad will be hosting the next two Tests. After the conclusion of the Test series, both the teams will lock horns in five T20Is and three ODIs.
The India-England rivalry is one of the most celebrated as well as the oldest rivalries in the game. The two giants of the game first played a Test way back in 1932 at the iconic Lord’s. England had won that Test. For India, it took them nearly 20 years to register their first Test win over the English team.
In recent years, however, the rivalry has been neck-to-neck. And as India and England are all set to take on each other once again, we are taking a look at how have they fared so far against each other in India.
