England vs India 5th Test Betting Tips

Host England will face India in the fifth Test, starting from Friday at the Old Trafford in Manchester. 

The contest is expecting to be another feisty one as the visitors are currently leading the series with the score of 2-1 with just one more to play. 

The home fans will be hoping to see the best of players in the fifth Test that would help the team in avoiding the series defeat. 

The home team management will feel slightly confident going into the Friday’s contest knowing that England have never suffered a defeat in the five-day format at the Old Trafford against India in nine meetings, which included four wins as well. 

England Form and Team news: 

England will be coming in this match low on confidence after suffering a demoralising defeat in the fourth Test where they ended on the losing side despite bowling India out for less than 200 runs in the first innings. 

The biggest concern for the team management will be the performance of batters in the previous outing where the hosts failed to secure a big first-innings lead which proved to be the reason for the side’s eventual downfall on the final day. 

With the prospect of saving the series still alive, there are likely changes in the playing XI for the final match of the series. 

Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler is set to return to the starting lineup and one out of Jonny Bairstow or middle-order batsman Ollie Pope is likely to miss out. 

Veteran pacer Mark Wood might return to the playing XI in place of Craig Overton to freshen things up. 

In the batting department, England will be relying on their in-form captain Joe Root, openers Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed and left-hander Dawid Malan to post a respectable total on the board in both innings. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers James Anderson, Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson, Wood along with off-spinner Moeen Ali to produce timely breakthroughs.

India Form and Team News: 

After securing an emphatic win in the fourth Test, team India will enter Friday’s contest high on confidence. 

The most pleasing thing for the coaching staff will be to see the character showed by the players in making a great comeback after being humiliated in the third Test. 

The visitors are unlikely to disturb the winning combination for the final game on the tour. 

In the batting department, India will be relying on the likes of captain Virat Kohli, in-form openers Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj along with left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja to dismantle the home team’s fragile-looking batting lineup.
