India is ready to lead an international series for the first time in the Corona era. The four-match Test series between the two teams is to begin from February 5, followed by T20 and then the one-day series. Indian captain Virat Kohli, who went on paternity leave, is back in the team. In this series, Kohli can record a big name for himself. Virat, who has scored 7318 runs in just 11 years old Test career, has 1570 runs in 19 Tests against England. If he scores 381 or more in the upcoming series, then Rahul will beat Dravid. Rahul is currently ranked number 3 in the highest run scorer against England, ahead of Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar.
Virat Kohli’s bat speaks fiercely against England. He has so far scored five centuries and five half-centuries at an average of 49.06. Virat is currently the sixth Indian batsman to score the most runs against England. The first match of the Agami Series will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, where Virat has scored 122 runs in two Tests at an average of 61.
A century against Australia in 2013, but only 15 runs against England in 2016. James Anderson and Stuart Broad have dismissed Virat five times each. Australia’s Pat Cummins has also dismissed Virat five times. England spinner Adil Rashid dismissed him four times. Virat has been dismissed by Australia’s Nathan Lyon more than seven times.
