England will take on India in a five-Test series in what is expected to be a major challenge for Ben Stokes' side.

England were beaten 3-1 by the hosts on their last visit in 2021 and India will provide a huge test for a team that has not played Test cricket since the last match of the 2023 Ashes series. However, under Stokes and Brendon McCullum, England have not lost a series since the arrival of the New Zealand coach .

England have beaten the likes of South Africa, New Zealand and Pakistan as well as recording draws with New Zealand and Australia. Some things have changed since England were last in a Test with Stuart Broad's retirement and England's dismal performance in the Cricket World Cup in India. It is expected to be a tough challenge in a country where England have not enjoyed success since 2012.

It seemed until recently that the much-anticipated series would not be broadcast on UK TV, but TNT Sports will now be showing the series in every sense of the word, as UK fans can catch every ball and every boundary. TNT Sports also announced that it will become the new official broadcast home for England's men's tours of India in 2024, 2025 and 2028.

So, with the series starting tomorrow, let's take a look at what you need to know and how to watch it.
