First India-England Test preview - Cricket World TV

As Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot is set to host its first ever Test match on Wednesday, Chetan Narula previews us the match between India and England.

Despite, England's success over India in the longer format, Chetan believes Alastair Cook's men will face a still challenge from the home side, who have taken huge strides in the last one-year under skipper Virat Kohli.

Also the combination of England side will be a debatable one considering their strength lies with their pacers more than the spinners as seen during the Bangladesh tour.

Cook had hinted that England might go with three spinners for the Rajkot game but who will be the third option with Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are certain to feature in the line-up?

Will India go with Kohli's preferable option of playing five bowlers considering the lengthy batting line-up of England or will one of Karun Nair or Hardik Pandya will get their debut? Chetan updates us with the very latest on the possible scenario on the game.
