new Delhi: England have to play a four-match Test series in India and the fans are eagerly waiting for this series. Team India has recently defeated Australia at its home, after which many speculations are being made on the tour of England. Although how accurate these predictions prove, only time will tell.
Team India has a big edge
The England spinners did not get a single wicket in the first innings of the second Test match being played with Sri Lanka at this time and this has raised questions on their ability to take wickets in India.
Dom Bess and Jack Leach together took 14 wickets in England’s first Test match win. Sri Lanka scored 381 runs in the first innings of the second Test match and the England spinner was not very effective.

Bes (Dom Bess) and Jack Leach have played a total of 12 Test matches Leach has taken 40 wickets and Bess has taken 27.
Big statement by Maninder Singh
Former India spinner Maninder Singh has said that England spinners will be successful in India, they are not sure about it.
Maninder Singh told IANS, ‘I doubt that he can disturb the Indian batsmen. There are no England spinners to bowl on the kind of wickets here. He bowls on good wickets. Bowling on different pitches requires different abilities and is also an art form.
He said, “On Indian pitches, the line and length of the spinners are different and it is not easy to keep pace with it”.
India and England will play the first two Test matches in Chennai followed by the remaining two Test matches in Ahmedabad. The weather in India will be hot and this means that the wickets will also be dry.
Maninder Singh said, ‘For example, as a left-arm spinner, your line of stump will be on a good wicket while on a wicket, his line will be leg-stumped. On a good wicket, as in England, if you bowl at the leg stump, you will be killed.
