Rightly so, India is now on a long winning streak especially in the test cricket. Virat Kohli as a captain has had a ride of success so far. He will face his toughest challenge against Steve Smith's Australia. The visitors would also have a daunting task of beating in form India in India.

Australian think tank has accepted that they aren't pretty sure about the pitches they would play on. At the same time they are aware how other teams have struggled to adapt in India. They have their own plans for all Indian batsmen, especially Virat Kohli. At the same time they need to roll up their sleeves to face the Indian spinners such as Ashwin and Jadeja.

Indian team is high on confidence with a great winning streak. They would love to continue their dream run with another series win. While cricket experts have predicted another 4-0 win in favour of India, Australia would certainly not give it away so easily. And we all know how uncertain the game of cricket is. It can swing either ways.

India vs England ODI T20 Series Preview

Before the India vs England ODI series could kick off, Indian fans were shocked to know that MS Dhoni would be leading the Indian team anymore. After he retired from test cricket couple of years ago, he has taken another big decision just before the start of the India vs England limited overs series. He has stepped down as the captain of ODI and T20 matches. Virat Kohli will take over from him. Dhoni will play as a regular wicket-keeper batsman. For those who love to see Dhoni as a captain, the warm up matches would serve the purpose for this time. He will lead India A against England XI in the warm up matches to be played before the ODI series.

India vs England 5th Test Match Live Streaming HotStar Info

India vs England 5th Test Match Preview

India has already nailed the series at the Wankhede Stadium and snatched all probable chance from England to level the series. All England can do now is play for pride in Chennai. India would love to clinch one more match and make this even a bigger series win for the team. The team under Kohli has looked absolutely unstoppable. And what a year this has been for Kohli. We will talk about this more in this post. The venue for the 5th and final test is Chennai. The city is already hit by a cyclone. Let us all pray for the well being of people in Chennai.

For England, this tour has been unstable. They managed a drawn series in Bangladesh followed by a good performance at Rajkot. But fortunes changed after that. Spirited performances from Indian players gave English players nightmares. James Anderson might give way to Broad. He hasn't looked too effective on India pitches. The negation of swing makes him easy to handle. For example, Kohli or Pujara looked pretty comfortable guiding the ball to boundaries against James Anderson.

For India, Ishant Sharma is available after his marriage. But Kohli might not be comfortable tweaking his winning XI. Even Karun Nair hasn't been too impressive with the bat so far. But a winning team can still provide more opportunities to the youngsters. The maximum Kohli would try is to include Manish Pandey in place of Nair. Otherwise, he should be comfortable providing another opportunity to KL Rahul at the top. Rahul has proved his worth many times in the recent past. 

Chepauk in Chennai hasn't been a pleasant ground for England. Last time when they played here, India chased a big 387 to win the test. Sachin flourished with a ton on the final day. England's last win came here in 1985. That was way back, isn't it? Neither form nor the fortunes favour England.

Let's see how the visiting team can resist this in form Indian team. After this test match, the England players will fly back home for a Christmas and New Year break. Following this we will see Dhoni back in action as the two teams lock horns for ODI and T20 matches. Stay tuned with us for more match previews and reviews. Enjoy live cricket match on HotStar.

India vs England 4th Test Live Streaming HotStar Information

India vs England 4th Test Match Preview

England team returns to the stage after a well deserved break. After lagging behind 2-0 hopefully they are ready with some strong plans for the fourth test match against India. Last time when they faced India at Wankhede stadium in 2012, they came out as winners. But then, they were lagging behind by just one test match and they emerged as series winners winning rest of two matches. This time the best they can do is win the next two matches and level the series. But this looks unlikely too. Way Indians are dominating the series, it seems rather hard. Virat Kohli and team are high on confidence and eager to win another test series.

The pitches have been bat friendly and yet we have seen results. This time the critics haven't got a chance to say Indian pitches are just for spinners. Right from Broad to Jadeja, they all have enjoyed bowling in this series. 

Indian team has faced some injury issues. The good part is they have always found a worthy replacement. Saha was well replaced by Parthiv Patel. He was raw and confidence against the English bowlers. As far as Indian bowling is concerned, it still revolves around Ravichandran Ashwin. For a change we also saw the pacers doing a great job. Especially those quick bouncers from Shami. You would rarely see such bold bouncers from an Indian bowler. Jayant Yadav has emerged as a decent all rounder for the team. Ajinkya Rahane is out with injury for rest of the series.

Hameed who batted very well for England is out with injury. England has roped in Keaton Jennings in his place. England needs to bank on spinners on the Mumbai track. This could probably be the biggest turning track for both the teams in this series. The curator has hinted a lot of turn from day 3. So toss also plays a very vital role here.

Winning last two test would be a daunting task for England. If they could repeat their last visit's performance, they could managed to level the series. On the other hand, India has to just draw the two matches to nail the series. Path is easier for India but then nothing comes easier in test cricket. The name itself says it all - Test Cricket.
