India Tour Of England: The picture of Team India has changed but the coach is excited about the deciding test. Team India, who reached England to play a five-match Test series last year, took a 2-1 lead with their excellent performance, and the final match was left. But the fifth and final match was postponed due to the outbreak of coronavirus. Which will now be played at Edgbaston from 1st to 5th July.
From last year, however, this time the picture of Team India has changed. The coach, captain, and vice-captain have changed. Instead of Virat Kohli, the command of the team is in the hands of Rohit Sharma. While Ajinkya Rahane is also not the vice-captain of the team. The head coach of the team has also become Rahul Dravid, not Ravi Shastri. Now it will be a challenge to convert Team India’s 2-1 lead into a series win on the pair of Rohit and Rahul. By the way, coach Dravid is very excited about this match.

Indian team captain Rohit Sharma, along with Virat Kohli, has already started practice after reaching England. Some pictures of the practice have also been tweeted by BCCI. During this, Captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gil have sweated profusely in the nets.
Virat’s 11 years in Test cricket is matchless
