The Indian team is all set to lock horns with England after the disappointing ODI series finished at a 1-2 loss. The last time when India played a Test series in England was in 2014 where they lost by 1-3 over five matches. The current India team is seeking a revenge this time with their skipper Virat Kohli who performed poorly the last time. The current India team is more competitive as they showed against South Africa earlier this year.
Before the series began Indian allrounder Hardik Pandya who is known as the jolly guy in the Indian camp posted a photo with wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik and captioned it “My no. 1 love @dk00019”.
This brotherhood love of Indian players is extremely healthy for the Indian dressing room. After seeing the post Karthik's wife and Indian squash player Dipika Pallikal could not resist and commented: “Clearly, I’ve been replaced; Thanks guys…..”. It was all taken in good humor.
Dinesh Karthik was selected in the Indian side as the replacement of regular wicketkeeper Wridhimann Saha who is struggling with a shoulder injury. While Pandya is considered as the next big all-rounder for the Indian side. They both will play a crucial role in the Test series as they both have match-winning capabilities.
