IND vs ENG 4th TEST Match Preview
India will take on England in the 4th of the four-match Test series which is starting from March 4th. The hosts will be riding high on confidence after their fantastic win in the previous game, in which they thrashed the visitors by 10 wickets within just two days. They will need only a draw in the final Test to qualify and play New Zealand in the final of the ICC World Test Championship.
England, on the other hand, have their backs up against the wall after two humiliating losses. Despite putting up a fight in the inaugural Test at Motera, England fell short and will be desperate to level the series with a win in this game. The surface for the fourth Test is unlikely to be different from the third Test and hence Joe Root and boys will need to be a lot better.
This is the perfect event for the fantasy sports enthusiast to predict their fantasy team. So here are the match details, pitch report, weather forecast, head to head, top picks, probable playing 11 and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 4th Test between India and England.

IND vs ENG 4th Test Weather & Pitch Report
The weather conditions will remain very hot throughout all five days in Ahmedabad. There is no chance of rain for the next five days. The temperature will reach 36-37 degree celsius during the afternoon period.
The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium is expected to turn just like the one we saw in the third Test and batsmen should look to keep the scoreboard ticking to get to a decent total. However, the pacers are also a threat on such a surface, with uneven bounce coming into play.
