India vs England Test: Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium now looks completely ready. The first test match between India and England will start on this ground from January 25. Although 5 matches are to be played in the series, but in the first match it will be known with what intention the England team enters the field. Meanwhile, if we talk about Hyderabad, it is a fort of Team India, which no opposing team has been able to penetrate till now. It is not going to be easy for England to win here either.
The first test match was played in Hyderabad in the year 2010.
This cricket stadium of Hyderabad is not very old. The first Test was played here in 2010, when the teams of India and England were face to face. When Team India entered this field under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the match ended in a draw. The test match was played here for the second time in the year 2012. Even at that time, New Zealand was in front of the Indian team. The Indian team won this match for the first time by an innings and 115 runs.
After New Zealand, Australia, West Indies and Bangladesh were also defeated.
In the year 2013, Team India faced a strong team like Australia. This time also India won the match by a huge margin of an innings and 135 runs. In the year 2017, the test match between India and Bangladesh was played on this ground. In that, India won by 208 runs. After this, in the year 2018, there was a clash between the teams of India and West Indies. Team India had won that match by 10 wickets.
5 test matches have been played in Hyderabad, not a single defeat
The 5 matches that have been held so far at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Out of those, India has won four and one ended in a draw. That means the Indian team has not lost here even once. We have already told you that there is not only victory here, there is big victory. This will boost the morale of the Indian team. It is another matter that a Test match is being held here after about five years. But the problem for the English team is that it has not played a single test here yet, which means the team will be seen playing for the first time.
England team will play test match on this ground for the first time
Most of the players of Team India have played on this ground. In this, the players of the English team will come face to face for the first time. Firstly, it can create difficulties for India and secondly, playing on this ground can create problems for England. Although the pitch is ready, it is not easy to tell how it will behave. But it is expected that there will be help for the spinners here. In such a situation, it is not going to be an easy task for England to deal with the Indian spinners.
