England and India's international cricket teams have already thrown up an exciting summer of action. First came the Twenty20s, which India won. Then England took the ODI series 2-1, winning the decider at a canter. But now comes the serious cricket, a glorious five match test series for the Pataudi Trophy. And we can tell you how to live stream the England vs India Test cricket from wherever you are in the world.
The main talking point around the England cricket team in the lead up to the Test series is the inclusion of leg spinner Adil Rashid in the first XI. Having told his county Yorkshire that he no longer wishes to play red ball cricket with them, his selection for national test team has caused quite the controversy. Elsewhere, Jos Buttler has been named vice-captain – eyes will be on him, Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow to provide some explosive batting for Joe Root's England side.
Trying to stop them will be the superstars of the India Test team, and none more so than captain Virat Kolhi. India haven't won a Test series in England for over a decade, and will be desperate for something like the 4-0 thrashing they gave them a couple of winters ago.
It's shaping up to be an exciting month or two of international test cricket, and you can watch England vs India wherever you are in the world with a live stream. Below we'll talk you through how you can do that on your TV or via a stream to your favourite devices.
