IND vs ENG Dream11: Engalnd made a strong comeback in the test series by defeating them convincingly by an innings and 76 runs. Both teams have one game each in the 5-match series after the first test ended in a draw. Both sides will look to win this test and take an unassailable lead in the series.
England came back very strongly after they were defeated in the 2nd test. Their bowlers did a fantastic job in the 3rd game. They bundled India for just 78 runs in the first innings and for 278 in the second. Robinson picked 7 wickets in the game while Craig Overton also picked 6 wickets in the match, James Anderson and Sam Curran chipped in with 4 and 3 wickets respectively.
Their batters were outstanding as well. Joe Root continued his stellar form and scored another century. Openers Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed scored 61 and 68 respectively. They gave a much needed opening stand to England. Dawid Malan playing his first test of the series scored 70 runs as well. Joe Root will want the same performance from his men in the remaining two tests as well.
Probable Playing 11: Haseeb Hameed, Rory Burns, Dawid Malan, Joe Root (c), Johnny Bairstow (wk), Ollie Pope, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson, Craig Overton, James Anderson.
The high on confidence Indian team received a big blow in the third test after they were defeated in a one-sided contest. Indian batting failed miserably in the first innings, getting bundled up for just 78 runs which gave England the upper-hand in the game. The bowlers weren’t that effective either which worsened things for England. Only positive thing was the runs from the bat of Cheteshwar Pujara and skipper Virat Kohli in the second innings. Pujara scored 91 runs while Virat scored 55 before he got out. The form of Ajinkya Rahane is still a matter of concern for the Indians.
Bowlers had a bad time during the third test but it’s acceptable as they have performed really well in the recent times and this was one off day for them. Expect them to bounce back strongly in the remaining two games.
Probable Playing 11: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma/Ravi Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj.

The wicket at the Kennington Oval is expected to play out the same as Leeds. Pacers will enjoy bowling on the first day while it will ease out for the next 2-3 days and will be good for batting. There will be assistance for the spinners in the last two days. There’s a little more than grass from what was expected on the pitch before the match starts.
The average first innings score at the Kennington Oval is 357 runs, but expect a little less score in the first innings in this game. India has won only 1 match out of 13 at the Oval which was in 1971.
England: No player is injured. Jos Buttler is ruled out due to personal reasons.
India: No player is injured, everyone is fit and available for selection.

Expect India to bounce back strongly after the thumping defeat in the last game. The bowlers have done well while the Indian middle-order needs consistency. England on the other hand, are full of confidence after the 3rd test. Their batters stepped-up in the last game and will look to continue the same.
