Team India is currently leading 3-1 in the series and is looking to give a crushing defeat to England by winning the fifth Test.

IND vs ENG Pitch report: According to media reports, the dominance of spinners can be seen once again in the fifth test. Actually, the weather condition in Dharamsala is bad at present. It may rain there for the next few days and the match may be disrupted. According to reports, to avoid this and end the match quickly, the pitch can be made a slow turner. Not only this, due to untimely rains the curator did not get a chance to do much work on the pitch. The curator is expected to hold discussions with the Indian team management to discuss the type of pitch that will ultimately be prepared.

The average score in the first innings on this ground has been 300, while the average score in the second innings has been 332 runs. The average score in the third innings is 137, while the average score in the fourth innings is 106.

A total of 30 wickets had fallen in the only Test so far in Dharamsala. Of these, fast bowlers took 12 wickets and spinners took 18 wickets. In such a situation, the spinners may get help this time too. At the same time, Team India can also benefit from the return of Jasprit Bumrah. He was rested from the fourth Test in Ranchi. It will be interesting to see whether Akash Deep, who made a tremendous debut in Ranchi, gets a chance or the team management reposes confidence in Mohammad Siraj. This will be Ravichandran Ashwin's 100th Test match and he would like to make this occasion special.
