India will aim for a bright start to the gruelling and testing five-match Test series against hosts England when the first match begins at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground on Wednesday.

The visitors have not won a Test series in England since 2007, achieved under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid. And now under Virat Kohli, they are bracing up for a stern test in difficult English conditions.

In this long tour of England, Kohli's men won the Twenty20 International (T20I) series but they suffered a setback in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series.

Following the loss in the ODIs, the visitors will look to make a strong comeback — but in a different format which challenges every cricketer to the hilt.

IPL 2020: The necessary nostalgia of Chris Gayle

Players like Gayle and de Villiers represent the fast-fading soul of T20 cricket - the flashes of genius, the parody of patience, the ripping of rulebooks, the measured mayhem. They might never be as functional as the Kohlis and Rahuls, but their batting is born from the intoxicating marriage of dominance and dysfunction.
