ENG vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

Joe Root, undoubtedly, is the best choice for the captain in this contest. The England skipper has an excellent record against India. He averages 54.21 against India with 1789 runs. Overall, he has 8714 runs in his Test career. 

James Anderson will be looking to dominate right from ball one here. The condition will assist the pacers more and with overcast conditions, Anderson will enjoy bowling here for sure. The veteran pacer has picked up 617 wickets in his career. 

Stuart Broad might play this contest too. He did well against New Zealand recently and was among wickets. He had five wickets in the last Test against New Zealand. The pacer, overall has picked up 523 wickets in his career. 

Rory Burns was the star performer for England in the series against New Zealand. He was the only one among the runs in that contest and he is likely to play a major role in this contest as well. He so far has 1529 runs in Test career. 

Dan Lawrence is in good form at the moment. He smashed back to back fifties in the Vitality Blast recently and will be the player to watch out for here. He is likely to roll his arms for a few overs as well. In his short Test career, he has 329 runs to his name.

Virat Kohli will lead the race for captaincy in this contest. The Indian skipper hasn’t been at his best for a while now and he will be keen to change things here. Kohli has a decent record against England and has scored 1742 runs against the hosts. 

This is an excellent opportunity for Rohit Sharma to set the tone in the Tests. The Indian opener was the stand out performer with the bat against England in their last series in India. However, this will be a huge test for him. 

Sam Curran is likely to play this contest and if he does, he is just too good to be missed out. The youngster will be the key when it comes to bowling and he will be contributing with the bat too. He can be trusted for a good performance here. 

Ashwin did well against England in the recent series in India. The all-rounder was among the wickets in the County Championship contest too. He will look to dominate with both bat and ball in this contest.
