England Test Squad against India
Captain Alastair Cook
All-rounder Moeen Ali
Question in detailEngland's Test squad against India has many players to watch out for in the five-match Tests series 2016. Amongst the few players are Alastair Cook, Joe Root and Moeen Ali. To include Captain Cook in the list is quite reasonable as he is the only English player to complete his 10000 runs in Test cricket. He achieved the feat in a span of 10 years, from 2006 to 2016. However, what's remarkable about the skipper is his past Test record in India. In England's tour of India 2012, Cook scored 562 runs, with the help of three centuries, to pilot his team to their first series win in India after 28 years. So, Cook is amongst the top English players in Test.
Joe Root is another English player to reconcile his existence in England's Test squad against India. One of the world's best five batsmen, Root is fourth in ICC's current Test ranking. In 88 innings of 48 Tests, Root has scored 4103 runs, including 10 centuries and 2 double-hundreds, at an impressive average of 53.29. Since spinners play a pivotal role in subcontinent conditions, Moeen Ali in all probability is considered to be a big threat to India. One of the top English players in Test, Ali is currently enjoying the reputation of being England's premier spinner. His performance on India's turning tracks could be a series-deciding factor.
