India and England have been playing Test cricket for 90 years now. The first India-England Test match was played at Lords Stadium long back in 1932. But India is yet to win a five-match series against the Three Lions in England. But this is something on the brink of collapse as India heads to play the fifth and final Test of the five-match Test series at Edgbaston. So lets check out India vs England 5 major records in Test Cricket:

1. Chance of rewriting 90 years of India-England Test History

The series which kicked off last year under Virat Kohli’s leadership, saw India take a 2-1 lead, before the 5th Test in September 2021 was rescheduled due to the threat of COVID-19.

Summary of India’s tour of England 2021/22 so far

  • 2nd Test, Lords: India won by 151 runs
  • 3rd Test, Headingley: England won by an innings and 76 runs
