IND vs ENG: England Announces a Strong Test Squad, Ben Stokes Will be The Captain | India vs England Test Series 2024: The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announces a strong 16-member squad for the upcoming five-match test series against India. This Test series between India and England is going to start from January 25 and the last test match will be played on March 7.

Ben Stokes returns to England’s Test Squad as the captain for the five-match test series against India after having a knee injury but still, he is not fully fit and is expected to not bowl in this series, especially in the starting few games. Ben Stokes’s comeback will make the England squad stronger as his experience and fearless cricket will help them a lot.

There are a few new names added to England’s Test Squad, which includes Ben Foakes, Shoaib Bashir, and Tom Hartley. These Young Players have a great opportunity to perform well in this test series against strong opponents like India. Gus Atkinson also returns to the test squad and it will be exciting to see how this young pacer performs in the Indian conditions.

IND vs ENG, England’s Strong and Experienced Pace Attack:

England has included four pacers (James Anderson, Mark Wood, Gus Atkinson, Ollie Robinson) in their squad for the test series against India and it is surprising to include these pacers in the spin-friendly wickets of India.

However, England added Shoaib Bashir, Jack Leach, Rehan Ahmed, and Tom Hartley as their frontline spinners in the squad for the test series against India. The Addition of these young players is a fantastic move by England ahead of an important test series for the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25.
