IND vs ENG 5th Test: India’s Predicted Playing XI vs England; Kuldeep Yadav Dropped, Devdutt Padikkal In. The Rohit Sharma-led Team India is ready to face England in the fifth and final Test of the five-match series, starting March 7 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala.

India has already won the Anthony de Mello Trophy as they go into the fifth match with a 3-1 lead. Although England won the first match in Hyderabad, India bounced back with three consecutive wins, handing England their first Test series defeat since Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes became coach and captain, respectively.

Rajat Patidar has scored 32, 9, 5, 0, 17, and 0 runs in his recent matches. With an average of 10.5, he only scored 32 runs in the first three Tests of his international career. India opted not to include Shreyas Iyer, who was out of form, for the remaining three Tests against England. Furthermore, the team is without KL Rahul, who was ruled out of the final game of the series.

As a result, Rahul’s Karnataka teammate, Padikkal, was brought in as a replacement. “Because Rajat (Patidar) hasn’t performed well in three Test matches, you might see a new player making his debut. The Indian team could give Devdutt Padikkal a chance. So, according to me, there will be two changes,” Bangar stated.

As Rohit Sharma’s Team India arrives in Dharamsala for the fifth and final match of the England series, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is set to make a comeback. Jasprit Bumrah may replace Kuldeep Yadav, resulting in India fielding three fast bowlers – Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, and Akash Deep.

However, Ravichandran Ashwin achieved 500 Test wickets in Rajkot, making him the second-fastest player to reach this milestone in terms of Tests played. Now, he will play his 100th Test in Dharamsala. Here’s India’s predicted playing XI for the fifth Test against England.
