The first two test matches of the four-game series between India and England will be played in Chennai, so Team India will have a chance to set a ‘Virat record’. If India achieves this feat, it will be a huge success in the test matches. The series of tests will begin on February 5.
India is two wins away from winning 100 test matches in the 21st century. If the Indian team achieves this feat, they will become the fourth team to do so. India have played 216 tests since January 1, 2000, in which they have won 98, lost 59 and drawn 59. Team India’s success rate was 45.37%.
India played its first test match in June 1932. Since then and until December 31, 1999, it played 330 test matches, winning only 61, 109 losses and 159 draws. His only test match was against Australia in 1986–87. In this century India has played its biggest test against Australia and won against it. India won 19 of 46 test matches against Australia, while only 16 lost and 11 draws.
After that, India played the second-highest test against the West Indies, in which they won 15 of 28 matches and lost just two. India won 12 and lost 15 against England. Australia have won the most test matches since January 1, 2000. The Kangaroos have won 138 out of 232 test matches. England won 120 of 266 tests while South Africa won 100 of 204 tests.
India and England have faced each other 9 times at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. In which Team India won 5 while England won 3 times while one game was drawn. In such a situation, it will not be wrong to say that it is very difficult to defeat India on this ground. The England team came on tour to India in 2016, when Team India beat the British 4-0 and captured the series.
The fifth game of the series was played in Chennai. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli’s army defeated Alastair Cook’s army by a round and 75 points. England scored 477 points hitting the first. In response, KL Rahul scored 199 and Karun Nair reached a triple century (303). India declared their first innings at 759/7. Then Ravindra Jadeja won 7 wickets and the overall England heats were reduced to 207 points.
