India did not start their series on a great note as they lost the opening Test in Hyderabad by 28 runs to go 0-1 down. However, Rohit Sharma’s men have made a sensational comeback to make it 2-1 in the series with wins in Vizag and Rajkot.

England, on the other hand, are on the backfoot and do not have much room for error going into the last 2 matches of the series. The upcoming India vs England prediction is expected to be an exciting one as the visitors have the potential to stage a comeback.

IND vs ENG match preview


India have made a couple of changes to their squad going into the 4th Test. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who is the leading wicket-taker of the series with 17 scalps, has been rested. KL Rahul failed to recover in time from the quadriceps injury that he sustained in the Hyderabad Test. He would not be a part of the Ranchi Test as well.

India, in the meantime, have added Mukesh Kumar in their squad after the pacer missed the Rajkot Test. Mukesh recently picked up 10 wickets in Bengal’s match against Bihar in the Ranji Trophy at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

In the second innings, he picked up 6 wickets and helped his team through to victory. With Bumrah not in the team, India could either bring back Mukesh or give Akash Deep his maiden international cap.

The outcome of the IND vs ENG prediction will depend a lot on how the home team carry their momentum from the win in Rajkot.

India Possible 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhruv Jurel (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar/Akash Deep, Mohammed Siraj


England and Ben Stokes have plenty of thinking to do if they are to make a comeback and draw level in the series. They made a brilliant start to the series before falling apart.

After Ben Duckett scored a hundred in the first innings of the Rajkot Test, England looked in command. But then, they allowed India to make a comeback after which they lost the match by 434 runs. Joe Root was heavily criticized for playing a rash shot off Jasprit Bumrah that led to his downfall. Along with Root, Jonny Bairstow has also been badly out of touch.

After being asked to chase down a mammoth target of 557 in the fourth innings, England were bowled out for 122 on Day 4. Stokes is on the verge of losing his 1st Test series after being named the skipper back in 2022.

The outcome of the IND vs ENG prediction will depend on how the Three Lions manage to stay calm with their backs against the walls.

England Possible 11: Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (c), Ben Foakes (wk), Rehan Ahmed, Tom Hartley, Mark Wood, James Anderson

Ravindra Jadeja played brilliantly at his home ground in Rajkot after he scored a century and picked up a 5-wicket haul in the second innings. He also completed the double of 3000 runs and 250 plus wickets in Test cricket, joining an elite list of Indian cricketers, including Kapil Dev and Ravi Ashwin.

IND vs ENG toss prediction: India to win the toss and bat first

As per the IND vs ENG toss prediction, teams should bat first. If India get to bat first, it would be very tough for England to make a comeback and draw level in the series.

Man of the Match prediction: Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal was hard done by after he did not win the Player of the Match award in the Vizag and Rajkot Tests despite scoring double hundreds. Given the kind of form he is in, he has every chance of winning one in Ranchi.
