ENG vs IND: 5th Test: Match Prediction
India has a better batting line-up with almost all players playing a good knock in the last game. Their bowling unit stepped up their game when needed to hand over a win. Ravi Ashwin and Mohammed Shami might come into picture to further strengthen their attack. England batting line-up has a lot to ponder and their over reliance on Joe Root is making them vulnerable. Anderson and Robinson look a bit tired in the last game but the return of Chris Woakes and Mark Wood might strengthen the attack. We expect Indian team to win this match.
