The third test and fourth test will be played at Headingly and Oval on August 25 and September 2 respectively. The final test will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester from September 10.

Important series for the Indian team

The Indian cricket team will go into the series really motivated as they had won a series in England way back in 2007 under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid. The 2011 four match test series was a whitewash for the Indian team as they lost the series 0-4. The 2014 test series started off well with a famous win at the Lords in the second test, but the indians went off the radar in the remaining matches to lose the series 1-3.

Virat Kohli after a dismal series in 2014 had a point to prove in the 2018 series and went on to have a memorable series in the tough conditions. But his efforts were not enough to the Indian team who managed only one win in the series and again lost the series 1-4 to England. Such has been the tough conditions in England and this will be the real test for the team after all the experience they have gained these years.
