The series opener shall be played in Rajkot from November 9 to 13. England are coming into the series after drawing level with Bangladesh in their backyard.

The English were handed an embarrassing defeat by Bangladesh in the second Test at Dhaka.The Brits had narrowly won the opening Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong by 22 runs before losing the second by 108 runs in Dhaka, their first defeat to the South Asian side in 10 Tests.

The English would be spending a considerable part of the winters in India with a long tour ahead. England's tour of India comprises of 5 Tests, 3 ODI's and 3 T-20s. The Bangladesh tour would have been a good testing ground for the English to take on India as the playing conditions and wickets were be very much alike.

As expected the English selectors have made their side batting heavy and beefed up their spin attack to combat the Indians on the low and turning wickets in India.
