India Vs England 2021 first test: Visitors Aim To Break Ashes Rivals Australia's 16-year-old Record

India Vs England 2021 first test:

Made a major performance of cricket against host India at Chidambaram Stadium. While the England cricket team was well-known for registering famous victories, many teams have struggled to perform consistently in sub-continent conditions, which the Root-led field has done well in their recent efforts. England have won six consecutive matches in Asia, beating India by 227 runs in the Test series opener, and are also in contention to claim a dominant record.

India vs England 2021:

England to level Australia’s astonishing record Australia currently holds the record for the most consecutive wins under Asian conditions. The Australian cricket team won seven back-to-back wins in Asia from 2002 to 2004, largely under the contributions of Steve Waugh with some contributions from Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist. England raised inches closer to their arch-rivals’ record as they now have six wins in Asia.

Root century in the test:

England’s red-ball captain, Joe Root, has emerged as their most prolific run-scorer in the long format. The star batsman has played 100 Test matches for England and has 20 centuries to his name. However, he is often criticized for throwing his wicket after a promising start, the players seem to be a recent outpouring.
