India and England are currently engaged in a 5-match Test series, with England winning the first match and India bouncing back with a victory in the second, resulting in a tied series at 1-1.
With Team India expecting a return for their star batter Virat Kohli in the team, team head coach Rahul Dravid provided an update for the same.
Following personal reasons, Virat Kohli took a break after the first two Test matches, and now, with the third Test approaching, there is anticipation surrounding his return, as confirmed by head coach Rahul Dravid.
The Visakhapatnam Test witnessed India securing a win by 106 runs, marked by stellar performances from emerging talents like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill. Jaiswal’s double century in the first innings and Gill’s impressive century in the second, along with Jasprit Bumrah’s standout bowling with 9 wickets, contributed significantly to India’s success.
