Former England spinner Graeme Swann said England would beat India in the rescheduled 5th Test, starting July 1 in Birmingham, adding that it’s a bad time to face Ben Stokes’ team, considering their ruthless performance in the longest format of the game.

On the other hand, India have been hit by Rohit Sharma’s COVID-19 positive case. India will miss opener KL Rahul, who has been ruled out due to an injury.

“England are in a good position, and they are favorites because of how they played against New Zealand,” Swann said in. a virtual interaction for Sony Sports.

“India haven’t played a Test match for long, which is a disadvantage. On the other hand, England have got three Tests under their belt, so that make them pre-game favorites.”

Swann said England players have peaked at the right time. “Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ollie Pope, and Ben Stokes have been excellent.”
