New Delhi. The fourth match of the series will be played between India and England at the Oval (IND vs ENG Oval Test) from Thursday 2nd September. England drew 1-1 in the 5 Test series by defeating the visiting team in Leeds. In such a situation, it is a tax or die match for both teams. Because the team that wins this match will not lose the series. The problem for India is that his record at the Oval is not very good. India have not won a Test here in 50 years. In 1 ground1, Team India recorded the first Test win at this ground. But since then, India’s quest for victory has not ended. India have lost the last three Tests at this ground.
If India lose here again, the dream of winning the series in England after 2007 will remain unfulfilled. However, the role of weather will be very important in this case. Because when will the weather in England change? It is not known at all.
Headingley’s weather was kind and it was sunny most of the time during the Test match and in 4 days England defeated India by an innings. But Kennington Oval is where the fourth Test between the two countries will be played. There can be weather problems (IND vs ENG Oval Weather Forecast).

In the last 10 years, Kennington Oval’s batting average is 32.01 higher than all the 5 places used in this series. In such a situation, it will not be difficult to collect runs here. However, due to cloudy skies and temperatures hovering between 18 and 20 degrees, fast bowlers can get help from the pitch in the first few hours. However, the good thing is that the chances of rain for the first two days are negligible.
