After a couple of morale-crushing defeats in the first two Tests (31 runs at Edgbaston) and (innings defeat at the Lord's), Virat Kohli registered a memorable victory in the third Test in Nottingham by 203 runs which helped them to bounce back in the five-match Test series.

Indian pacer Ishant Sharma achieve the 250 wicket milestone in the longer format. If he able to get solitary wicket then he will become 7th Indian to scalp 250 wickets in the Test cricket. He became third Indian bowler after Kapil Dev(434) and Zaheer Khan(311).

Nottingham victory gave India hopes of coming from 0-2 down to win a five-match series, something achieved just once in the history of Test cricket, by a Don Bradman-inspired Australia against England in Ashes 1936/37. So for the Indian team to emulate such a feat the first step would be to opt for their best playing XI.

Interestingly, this is only the third Test at Southampton. England had previously played Sri Lanka (2011) and India (2014). England had won their last encounter against India in Southampton by 266 runs.

Indian Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

England Squad:

Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, James Vince.
