England Vs India Preview

England has wrapped the series already which can make the last test non eventful. But, there are two reasons which wont make last test lackluster one. This is the last test match for one of the greatest batsmen England has ever produced, Alaister cook. They would like to give him a glorious send with 4-1 victory against India. The second reason is Virat Kohli is a kind of captain who would play for pride. 3-2 is definitely a preferable defeat over any other score.
