IND vs ENG Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – England Tour of India, 4th Test

In Jasprit Bumrah's absence, Umesh Yadav is likely to feature in this game. He can be a good budget pick.

Match Details:

The fourth Test of the four-match Test series between India and England will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on 4th March, Thursday.

This match will start at 09:30 AM IST. It will be live on Star Sports Network and can be streamed on Disney+ Hotstar in multiple languages.

Preview:

Having started the series on a poor note, India have taken very less time to find their rhythm back. They won the second Test in Chennai comfortably, while the very first match at the Narendra Modi stadium saw the Indian spinners at their very best. With the pitch unlikely to change one bit, they are likely to fox the English batsmen once again.

The Three Lions will have been much better in their application if they want to pose a threat at the very least. Their batting unit have been completely bamboozled by Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel. While their hopes of making it to the final of ICC World Test Championship is all but over, they will try to level the series.
