After thrashing Ireland with the all-round performance in the two-match T20 International series, Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team will now face their toughest opponent for five Tests, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three T20 Internationals (T20Is) match.
India’s much-talked-about England tour will start from 3 July 2018 and come to an end on 11 September 2018. The Men-in-Blue will also play a first-class match against Essex in July at Chelmsford. The tour is going to test the depth Indian squad as the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup 2019 will be played in England only.
However, in a major setback for Men-in-Blue key pacer Jasprit Bumrah and spinner Washington Sundar have been ruled out from Indian squad due to injury.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians all-rounder Krunal Pandya and Chennai Super Kings medium pacer Deepak Chahar on Sunday (1st July) earned their maiden India call
