England vs India 1st Test Live Telecast Channel: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of the first ENG vs IND Test.
The first Test match of the ongoing India’s tour of England will commence at the Trent Bridge from tomorrow. In what will be the 11th five-match Test series between England and India, it will also be their 35th Test series against each other.
Having already played a four-match Test series earlier this year, this will also be the first time when England and India will play a total of nine Test matches in a year.
A similarity between both the teams is that they will be taking the field without their first-choice players due to various reasons. While England will be without vice-captain Ben Stokes, India will miss the services of opening batsmen Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal.

As far as replacements are concerned, neither of England and India have announced their Playing XI on the eve of the match. In a bid to retain balance in Stokes’ absence, England are expected to play both Sam Curran and Craig Overton in the Nottingham Test. India, on the other hand, have a like-for-like replacement in batsman Lokesh Rahul.
