India vs England 1st Test Match Preview and Live Streaming: England's tour for Team India has always been one of the toughest touches in Indian cricket History.

The Indian batting unit has been in exceptional touch with the top six batsmen KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane all getting runs for India on a consistent basis over the past few years.

"They seem to have got a good variety of bowlers and strength in depth in their pace bowling", said England opener Alastair Cook.

"We are not anxious at all, because both are really quality batsmen", said India s Ajinkya Rahane of his top-order colleagues.

Buttler is in the form of his life, having scored five consecutive half-centuries in the IPL before those Tests against Pakistan.

Then for [national selector] Ed Smith to phone me and say, "I think you're good enough to play Test cricket for England and I'm not fussed you haven't played much red-ball cricket recently", that gave me a huge amount of confidence. They just have a different mentality, a winning mentality in every game and the consistency to do that. "I feel like I have learnt a hell of lot from watching guys train and go about their practice, ways they react to certain pressure moments in a game as well". For those two games I was not sure how it would go but I approached them in a great manner and it is important for me to do that going into this series. Due to this, Team India has witnessed many embarrassing defeats in England.

England's 1000th Test match will be played at Edgbaston against India. "Naturally you have friendships with them but on the field they seem to be forgotten and everyone is competitive. Maybe the Adil Rashid furore will help", said Vaughan, who was one of the key characters involved in the Rashid "furore".

England's most successful decade ever was the 1910s, when they won two thirds of their 21 Tests. India won the Twenty20 series and lost the one-day internationals, but Kohli knows that his Test performance - starting in Edgbaston on Wednesday - will be the benchmark of success. Moeen played with Virat at RCB and [Yuzvendra] Chahal.

England batsmen have made 856 centuries, including 57 double-hundreds and five triples - Len Hutton against Australia in 1938, Wally Hammond against New Zealand in 1933, Gooch against India in 1990, Andy Sandham against the West Indies in 1930 and John Edrich against New Zealand in 1965. It will be highly competitive. I think he's matured as a cricketer and improved since we last saw him in an England Test shirt.

"People who watch, shouldn't remember how many runs they score or what innings they played".
