So, after the series against Afghanistan, Team India is set to play a five-match Test series with England. This Test series is crucial for Team India from the perspective of the World Test Championship (WTC). The schedule is now out, detailing when and where the matches will be played, along with information on where to watch. I’ll provide you with the details, including the start times for each session and the participating teams. Let’s go through the entire schedule.
India vs England Schedule
Check when the first match is, when the second match is, and so on. The series kicks off on January 25th and continues until January 29th, with the first Test match to be played in Hyderabad. The second Test match will take place from February 2nd to February 6th in Visakhapatnam, followed by the third Test from February 15th to February 19th in Rajkot. The fourth Test match will see Team India face England in Ranchi from February 23rd to February 27th.
The fifth and final Test match is scheduled for March, from the 7th to the 11th, in Dharamshala.
India vs England Broadcast and Streaming:
Now, after this, the question arises: What will be the match timings? In the previous Test series, there was a significant time difference. Matches started at 1:30 PM according to Indian time, while matches in Africa were scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM. However, since this series is in India, the timings have changed. According to Indian time, the matches will start at 9:30 AM.
England Squad Revealed:
The first session will be from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, followed by a 40-minute lunch break. The second session will be from 12:10 PM to 2:00 PM, followed by a 20-minute tea break. The third session will then start at 2:30 PM and continue until 4:30 PM. That covers the timing. Now, the question is where the series will be broadcasted. In India, the series will be broadcasted on the television channel Sports 18 Sports City Network. If you want to watch the matches digitally on your mobile or laptop, you can tune in to Jio Cinema. Now, let’s move on to the squads. Team India has not yet announced its squad, but England has already announced theirs.
Team India: Awaiting the Squad:
The England squad includes Ben Stokes as the captain, along with players like Rehan Ahmad, Jimmy Anderson, Gass Atkinson, Jonny Bro, Shoaib Bashir, Harry Brook, Jack Crawley, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, and Ollie Robinson. That will be England’s team. As for Team India, I think the announcement of their squad might come just a day or two before the fourth or fifth day, considering some ongoing injuries. Shami is already out after the first two Tests, and now, Raj Gaikwad is also injured, missing the next two Tests. So, BCCI might be assessing the available options before finalizing the squad.
