Current Status:

The first Test between India and England commenced today, January 25, 2024, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Here are the live updates as of 6:47 PM IST:

  • England won the toss and elected to bat.
  • At the time of writing, England reached 192/7 after 54.4 overs.
  • Ben Duckett and Zak Crawley provided a solid opening stand for England, but lost momentum after India’s spinners, Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin, came into the attack.
  • India currently holds the upper hand with three wickets down and the pitch expected to deteriorate further, benefiting spin bowling.

Key Talking Points:

  • This series carries immense significance for both teams, with India aiming to reclaim the Anthony De Mello Trophy after losing it in England in 2021, and England looking to extend their dominance in overseas Test cricket.
  • The performance of India’s spin trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Axar Patel will be crucial for the home team’s success.
  • England’s batting lineup, particularly their middle order, will need to step up against the experienced Indian bowling attack.
  • The nature of the pitches and the weather conditions will also play a key role in determining the outcome of the series.
