The high-profile five-match Test series between India and England has plenty of excitement as both teams are equally influential in red-ball cricket. India will have a significant home advantage; as Indian pitches tend to favor the spinners.

England also has some very talented spinners in the series, which makes it a great match. The team now has new faces like Jack Leach. India’s spin attack includes veterans Ravichandaran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, both of whom have given England’s batsmen a tough time in the past. Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan said before the series that India should refrain from creating spin-friendly pitches in the league.

Vaughan expressed views in his Telegraph that he believes it would be a big mistake for India if the pitches spin too much of the ball in one series. England win quickly and do so even when their innings are short. He also added that the spinners bring in Jack Leach and England’s young spinners; is Leach a better spinner than Jadeja? But if you give him the momentum and England bat first, he is right in the game.”
