England will begin their campaign in the second cycle of the ICC World Test Championship when they lock horns with India in the upcoming five-match Test series, starting August 4.
After missing out on the final in the first edition, Joe Root & Co will be desperate to bounce back in the second season. England recently lost a home Test series against New Zealand and will be keen to bounce back against India.
