India's predicted XI for the 4th Test
India's predicted XI for the 4th Test

After a weak long break, the caravan of the Specsavers Test series moves to The Ageas Bowl in Southampton with hosts England looking to halt India's surge after suffering a 203-run shellacking at Trent Bridge last week.

England will come to Southampton with some heartening memories. Last time when they met India at the Ageas Bowl, they were coming off a 95-run loss at Lord's and then went on to beat the Men in Blue by 266 runs thanks to Alastair Cook's 95 & 70. Four years on, Cook finds himself in a similar situation (80 runs in six innings) and England will hope their talisman steps up to the challenge.

England has roped in Moeen Ali and Sam Curran in their squad in place of Ollie Pope and injured Chris Woakes. Jonny Bairstow has been declared fit but will only feature in the side as a specialist batsman with Jos Buttler donning the keeping gloves.

So, what about India then? Virat Kohli in his 38-Test tenure has not fielded the same eleven in two consecutive Test matches; will Southampton be the first ever occasion?
