India vs England Live Cricket

Done with the warm ups! Now let us get to the real business! India vs England 2014 kicks off soon and the cricket fans just can't wait for The Big Test (as christened by ESPN Star Sports). It has been 14 test matches away for India without a win. And it has been a disastrous series loss for England against Srilanka recently. With both the teams under pressure and out there to prove a point, we would certainly witness one of the best test series. Don't forget to enjoy India vs England 2014 live streaming on Star Sports in India and Sky Sports in the UK. Meanwhile ESPN Star Cricket network will provide comprehensive telecast of the test series on Star Sports HD with English and Hindi commentary in India. Click here for the full schedule.

Rahul Dravid has a big role to play in this series as he will play the role of batting consultant for India. Way back in 1996 he kicked off his test career playing against England in England. His knock of 95 runs at Lord's made him a firm batsman who later emerged as one of the best batsmen in the history of cricket. Not to forget, India has won only three test series in England so far, out of which one came under Dravid's captaincy. So he would certainly be the best person to consult Indian batsmen on this tour. He is contented to see the current batsmen playing well in the warm ups. His bigger concern remains to be the bowling unit that needs to bowl out England twice. Same is the concern for every Indian fan.

MS Dhoni played consistently well in 2011 when India suffered a 0-4 test series loss to England. His captaincy would be on stake if he doesn't make a mark with his team this time out there. He knows his challenges and accepts the fact that he has to bank more on the batsmen with a relatively inexperienced bowling attack.
These two would play an important role for India
Meanwhile eyes would be on Kohli and Pujara who are well known for their batting skills. Pujara is termed to be the next Dravid of India. While Kohli has already proved his batting playing away from India. India is well equipped with other batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Rahane, Dhawan, Murali Vijay, etc. Bowling side has the likes of Shami, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Ashwin, Jadeja, etc.

Talking about England, they are also a bit similar to India taking into consideration the re-building phase. England just lost a series to Srilanka which was a major setback for captain Cook. He too has a lot to prove just like his counterpart.

With so much of pride on stake, we are bound to have two months of quality cricket in England. Stay tuned with ESPN Star Cricket network.

India vs Leicestershire and India vs Derbyshire Warm Up Matches Live

India vs Derbyshire Warm Up Match Live Streaming Score Info
India has kicked off their tour to England in style! With a good amount of time to prepare for the test series and a chance to get used to the cricketing conditions out there, India is playing couple of warm up matches. We will preview both the matches here but don't forget to enjoy India vs England 2014 live streaming on Star Sports in India. The matches would be telecast live on TV again on ESPN Star Sports TV channels in India. One can enjoy HD telecast also with English as well as Hindi commentary. Before we move on to the five test series, India plays Leicestershire first and then Derbyshire.

The first warm up match has already begun and the Indian batsmen have shown their hunger for runs. Good to see Gambhir, Rohit, Dhawan, etc in some good form. Compared to the last tour to England, India is pitching in highly inexperienced side which is full of fearless players like Rohit Sharma, Rahane, Pujara, Dhawan, etc. Last time India suffered a humiliating 0-4 test series loss to England even in the presence of Dravid, Laxman and Sachin. The good part is Dhoni scored runs freely in that tour and he is confident of a good show this time. On the flip side he is also well aware of the challenges that his team is going to face here.

England on the other hand is down and devastated with a test series loss against Srilanka. It was anybody's series out of the two where both the teams played equally well. Srilanka held their nerves in the last test and clinched a historic test series win. Meanwhile Cook who led the side has faced a lot of criticism from the likes of Shane Warne, Michael Vaughan and Boycott. Let us see how well he reacts with his bat.

The first warm up match against Leicestershire will be played at Grace Road in Leicester. The second warm up match against Derbyshire will be played at the County Ground in Derby. Both the grounds were established in the 19th century and have their unique glorious history. Apart from the county matches, these venues have a long aged history of test nations visiting and playing warm up games against the county teams.

Here is the India's warm up matches fixtures in England:
India vs Leicestershire - 26 to 28 June 2014
India vs Derbyshire - 1 to 3 July 2014
