In just a few days time, England and India will complete their Test series after a Covid outbreak in the cricket camps forced the series to be postponed last summer.

However, there are two big changes in the teams since last time the two sides met - both will be lead by a different captain.

Joe Root held the reins last summer but after a poor run of results which saw one Test win in 17 matches (that one win coming against India) Root resigned from his position as captain.

Additionally, Virat Kohli stepped down from his role as Test captain of the Indian team after they suffered a Test series loss to South Africa.

All-rounder Ben Stokes has now taken over as captain of the England squad while opening batter Rohit Sharma has come in to skipper India.

Stokes has recently enjoyed phenomenal success as the new England captain, guiding his team to their first 3-0 home series whitewash win in nine years.

The Durham all-rounder will hope that their recent successes against New Zealand can help guide them to a series draw as they currently sit 2-1 down against India.
