The India vs England series is all set to begin on the 25th of January where both the teams will feature in a Test series that includes 5 games. The Indian squad has been announced with the spin trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel in the mix and will look forward to the conditions that will suit them really well. All these spinners combined have over 800 wickets between them in Test matches and will be the key players against these explosive English batters, who are known to attack rather than defend their way through the game.

The bowler who will be the man to look out for is Ravichandran Ashwin who is currently one of the highest wicket takers in Test cricket for India. Ashwin has taken 490 wickets in 95 matches making him the second highest wicket taker in Test matches under Anil Kumble. He is also the second highest wicket taker among current spinners as well. Along with his bowling, Ashwin has also scored some valuable runs with the bat where he has scored over 3000 runs which also includes 5 Test centuries.
