Let us have a look at the playing XI for the fifth test.
India XI - Murali Vijay, Gautam Gambhir, MS Dhoni, R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Stuart Binny and Varun Aaron.

England XI - Cook, Robson, Bell, Root, Ballance, Buttler, Woakes, Broad, Jordan, Anderson and Moeen Ali.

India has pitched in a strong line up with a "better" bowling line up this time. Although Ashwin hasn't provided too many breakthroughs but he is excellent with bat and can contain batsman at one end. Bhuvaneshwar hardly bowls a bad ball. Ishant was exceptionally well with his man of the match performance at the historic Lord's win! Stuart Binny has to prove his worth but he can come in handly with his swingers and bat. Varun Aaron is really quick and Broad's broken nose tells the story about it.

Batting wise only Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane and Dhoni have consistently clicked so far. A lot was expected from Kohi and Pujara and they haven't performed to their potential. As cricket experts keep saying, if these two click; they can give nightmares to English bowlers. Let us hope the experience of Gambhir fares well and he can score a decent knock.

For England, almost everything has gone their way after the Lord's loss. Anderson wasn't proved guilty in his infamous feud with Jadeja. He has been the trump card for England bowling. Broad who took loads of wickets in the last match broke his nose but would bravely play in 5th match with a face mask (speculated)! Moeen Ali took a lot of wickets and proved to be the only successful spinner this series. He has batted well too with the likes of Root and Bell. Ballance has scored runs whenever England needed and its a good sight to see Cook back in form.

With a green tinge of grass both the captains would have loved to bowl first. England does the honours to bowl first and put pressure on India with some early wickets. India would aim for a solid start. With an average first innings score of 350 odd runs at the Oval, India would aim atleast a 350 or 375 first innings total. That would be minimum for them to lay a solid platform. India would also aim some solid bowling performance from the quickies.

Just a debate in the end. Are Indian batsmen still the best players against spin? Well we would say it would be good for the visiting team if they don't get complacent against the likes of Moeen Ali. Here is the impact of Moeen Ali in this India vs England test series:

India is set to play against England at the Old Trafford with yet another green track that would help pace and bounce. With almost everything going the other way, Dhoni and the team has to assemble a lot of things before they can put up a good fight. England is high on confidence with a huge win in the third test. Although the series score reads 1-1, cricket fans and experts strongly feel the home team England has an upper hand here at Manchester. India vs England 4th test match live streaming and telecast will be available in India on ESPN Star Cricket network with Hindi commentary telecast on Star Sports 3 channel. 

There are few things (or lot of them) that are biting the Indian think tank. The feud between Anderson and Jadeja had ended with no punishment to either of the players. Indians were hoping high that Anderson would face a ban or two. But this outcome has hurted the Indian cricket management. On the other hand a brilliant win at Lord's was followed by a big loss at Southampton. Dhoni might be adamant to play with four bowlers, but all the experts are against this thought. To support to their claim, Indian played seven batsmen at a flat pitch in Southampton but couldn't manage big scores. On the other hand a bigger bad news is Ishant and Bhuvaneshwar are unlikely to play in the next match. Probably a long five match series is taking toil on the Indian players.

If we go back to India's tour to Australia in 2007-08; there was a similar feud between Harbhajan and Symonds. Similar to Dhoni, even Kumble took a tough step off the field protecting his team. But he also proved the worth of his team on the field with a win at Perth. Although the series ended in favour of Australia, still it always remained a beautiful fighting memory in the hearts of Indian cricket fans. Dhoni has a bigger task to face. He really can't face a series defeat as he already had a dreadful time here in 2011. So apart from his aggressive stance off the field he has to atleast draw or win the series before he faces lot more criticism.

Coming back to what changes can happen in the team. Rohit Sharma has been out of consistency. According to the experts Dhoni should replace him with a full time bowler like Ashwin. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan's lack of form is a worrying factor up the order. We can hardly see any solid partnerships in the opening. So we may see return of Gautam Gambhir to open the innings with the in-form Murali Vijay. A lot is expected from Kohli and Pujara. If these two get going, England may see tables turning on them. Rahane has been solid in the middle order. He would expect better partnerships from the likes of Dhoni or Jadeja.

As far as the bowling department is concerned, Bhuvi or Ishant might not play. Pankaj Singh didn't clinch any wicket and gave away a lot of runs. He deserves another shot but you never know what plan Dhoni has for him. On the other hand now lot relies on Shami and probably Varun Aaron who is likely to play at Old Trafford. With a green pitch that is also believed to be the fastest in England, Varun Aaron looks a probable choice. David Lloyd supports the claim:-

For England things are smoother after their loss at Lord's. Their biggest relief would be the presence of Anderson who was exceptional at Southampton. Stuart Broad may take rest due to some injury. Good to see Cook and Bell back in form. They will hold the key in the batting. Root and Moeen Ali are doing a good all round job. Ballance is by now the highest run getter in this series.

Too many thoughts running across the minds of players and think tanks. Let us wait and witness another fighting test match which might decide the probable winner of this series! Meanwhile here is some news for the forthcoming ODI and T20 series..

India vs England 3rd Test Live Streaming Information
To everyone's surprise India has turned tables on England this time. Yes it was 0-4 whitewash last time, but the story looks completely different this time. India has won the second test at Lord's and taken a  1-0 lead in this best of five test match series. MS Dhoni had words of praise for almost the whole team that contribute in the win at Lord's. While England's captain Cook had another series of criticism after which he himself had to rethink of him being a part of the team. With all this drama already on board, we are yet to witness the third test match that is to be played at Southampton. Catch live cricket streaming and telecast on Star Sports in India. For the ones who would like to enjoy live cricket telecast in Hindi commentary should tune into Star Sports 3 in India.

England has already declared their squad for the second test. Prior already declared his unavailability after the Lord's test. Buttler is eager to get going for the team. He had a good record with Lancashire this year. 
Cook who is still struggling with the worst patch of his career continues to lead the team in this series. His team has lost seven out of last nine test matches. No one looks happy with Cook being the captain of the team. Here are few tweets that shows sheer frustration from former cricketers indicating requests for changes in the team:
India created history at Lord's. They managed a win at Lord's after 28 long years. India's overseas drought since 2011 also ended with that emphatic win. The important players who sealed a win there were Murali Vijay, Ishant Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Ajinkya Rahane. Some good words from Alec Stewart for team India.

The feud between Jadeja and Anderson was still fresh while England met with this embarrassing defeat. We will soon have a hearing for Anderson. If he is to be banned, things would further worsen for the home team. On a positive note, they haven't lost everything. With three matches to go, England can still bounce back and put the young Indian team under pressure.

India on the other hand would love to go 2-0 up in the series. While Dhoni unfortunately admitted to the fact that this could be his last series in England, he would love to add another feather to his cap with a series win in England.

A lot of things going in everyone's mind about the pitch, about the first test and about the feud between Anderson and Jadeja. Adding flavours to the test series, we are all set to witness another big test at the Lord's - India vs England 2nd test match. Before we preview this second test, just to let you all know, India vs England 2014 live streaming cricket is available on official Star Sports website and live telecast can be enjoyed on Star Sports channels in India.

The first test served good heavenly track for the batsmen but it didn't work in interest of cricket of the crowd. Such pitches don't produce results; hence the biggest concern in the second test stays to be the nature of the pitch. Couple of tweets from Michael Vaughan and Stuart Broad indicated that the pitch might help England more than India. But the key would be to bat first and post a good 400 plus total on the board.

MS Dhoni is not too keen on the pitch. He said the team is open to all kind of pitches so just bring it on! He had a brave opinion saying they have seen a lot of flat tracks in the sub-continent. They want to see some pace, bounce and swing which can expose his youngsters to cricketing conditions away from home.

The feud between Jadeja and Anderson is getting messy. Dhoni is in no compromise mood. While Captain Cook feels this is all strategy to pressurise England, Dhoni is firm on his stance. He believes they can't bear any behaviour that lacks sportsmanship. The whole issue begun when umpire turned down Anderson's caught behind appeal against Jadeja. Anderson allegedly pushed Jadeja and that is where the matter grew. Now it is upto ICC to charge Anderson and Jadeja with code of conduct. Anderson or Jadeja may face more than a match's ban.

As far as the playing XI is concerned, it is believed to be the same as test one. Cricket fans would love to see Ashwin in second test but Dhoni may give Jadeja and Binny another chance. Conditions here at Lord's can favour swing and Binny may come into picture. Jadeja comes in handy with his spin and bat too.

England lacks a quality spinner to take full advantage of the pitch here at Lord's. Moeen Ali can't be considered as a full time spinner and Cook can't be too confident about him. So he would still rely more on his pacers like Broad and Anderson. Hopefully Jordan gets a chance today.

A lot depends on the performances of this test. Team that manages a win here might have an upper hand in the remainder of this series. Just wait and watch is all we can say apart from enjoying quality cricket at the home of this game.

5th Test Match - India vs England - 15 to 19 Aug 2014

This is followed by ODI and T20 series. We will keep you updated about that. Don't worry!

There is a lot on stake in this series. As we all know almost every single person that follows English cricket has criticised Alastair Cook. England team hasn't seen too many good days in recent past. The biggest one came recently when England lost to Srilanka in a test series at home. Critics say this opens up a bright opportunity for confident and young Indian team to register their fourth series win in England, which we again believe is a big ask and a big task for India.

On the other hand we have MS Dhoni who celebrated his birthday a day before this post is being written. He has his bitter memories about the 2011 test series here in England. And when England visited India in late 2012, again India suffered test series loss. In short, England is the toughest competition for India in test series since 2011.

Indian bowlers are way inexperienced for English conditions and hopefully they can create some magic. Indian batting line up looks highly confident and hence more impetus would be laid on the bowling effect. Many news had flown in recently about tracks being created in England that would support the batsmen. That somehow gives a relief to the Indian camp. Less bounce would give more confidence to the Indian batsmen. 

Forecast would be gloomy with light showers throughout the series. Hope we get a full fledged five test match series without any interference from the watery clouds. 

Can Cook's XI recreate the magic of 2011? Or will it be the other way round? Can India wipe off the 2011 scars and register wins with the confident bunch of youngsters? Cricket doesn't get as exciting as this! Don't miss the Big Test on Star Sports!
