India vs England Test Series : The second match of the ongoing 5 test match series between India and England will now be played in Visakhapatnam. For this, Team India will reach there soon. After losing the first match, the Indian team is now trailing in the series. The next match is going to be much more important.

Meanwhile, before the next match, you should know how many Tests India has played so far in Visakhapatnam and how many have been won.
Two tests have been played so far in Visakhapatnam
Team India played its first Test match in Visakhapatnam in the year 2016. This match was also against England. The Indian team had won this match by 246 runs. Although the team was second then. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara played century innings. While Kohli is not playing the first two Tests, Cheteshwar Pujara has not got a place in the team. After this, India played the second match here in the year 2019 against South Africa. In this match also, India had won by 203 runs. Now the third match will be played here. That is, the Indian team has easily succeeded in winning the first two matches.
To level the series, the match will have to be won at any cost.
The Indian team has lost for the first time in Hyderabad also. In all the tests held before this, India had won. The special thing is that even for the first two days of the first Test, the Indian team was looking ahead, but Ollie Pope’s innings changed everything. Team India will try to level the series by winning the next match. But the kind of performance England has shown, the next match is also not going to be easy.
Team India also suffers loss in World Test Championship points table
The Indian team was at number two in the ICC World Test Championship points table before the first Test. But now after the defeat it has directly reached number 5. Even Bangladesh seems ahead of the Indian team. But as soon as Team India wins the next match, it can regain its lost position. It remains to be seen whether the Indian team remains invincible in Visakhapatnam, whether that record continues or is broken.
Awaiting victory from last 3 test matches
The Indian team has not been able to win a single match in the last three Test matches in India.
