Rahul Dravid relishes challenge of facing 'different' England with 'series on the line'
India coach says England were "a little bit on the back foot" last year but are "playing really good cricket" right now
A Test match to be played nearly a year after its original date, the series on the line,
two different-looking squads with new captains and coaches and World Test Championship points to be grabbed:
The last Test of the five-match series - which India currently lead 2-1 - that abruptly came to a halt last year at Old Trafford will now be played at Edgbaston starting July 1.
Given the changes in the two line-ups and England's recent 2-0 series win against Test champions New Zealand - with one match left yet - Dravid said the dynamics of the series won't be the same.
"In terms of the Test match, it is obviously going to be exciting," Dravid said on Sunday in Bengaluru.
"For us it is a one-off Test match, but it's WTC points. It's a series on the line for the guys who played a part in it [last year],
and they are very keen to try and win that series and do well. So looking forward to that.
