In such a situation, if Team India registers victory in the fifth Test match, then after 15 years on English soil, it will do the feat of winning the Test series again. Along with this, a special coincidence is also being made about this series.
Let us tell you that the last time the Indian team won a Test series in England was 15 years ago. Team India did this feat under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid during the 2007 tour of England. At the same time, Dravid is once again with Team India. Although Dravid was the captain of the team when Team India lifted the trophy in 2007, but now he is in the role of coach. In such a situation, the Indian team is once again standing on the threshold of creating history. At the same time, when the Indian team went to England last year, the head coach of the team was Ravi Shastri.
