International cricket returns to India after the COVID-19 halt with the four-match Test series against England. The opening Test gets underway on February 5 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Team India must be on cloud nine after their historic 2-1 Test series triumph on Australian soil. Moreover, several big names like regular skipper Virat Kohli and Ishant Sharma are back in the national side. On the other hand, the Three Lions recently thrashed Sri Lanka 2-0 in the Test series, but India will possess a much more formidable challenge.
