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.
