England v India cricket

England v India cricket

With the fifth and final test of the 2016 India v England series currently underway, we take a look at the history of the fixture and how Lycamobile sees sport as a benefit to communities.

India and England’s cricket history dates back to 1932, when India’s test debut was played against England in, which they lost by 158 runs.

India’s first victory against England came in 1952 after seven defeats and a further seven draws. Since then, matches have been regular but India has only recently started to challenge England in head to head stats.

In fact, so competitive and frequent has this fixture become that in 2007, to commemorate the 75 years since the first test match between the two sides, a trophy was designed – the Pataudi Trophy. Since its inception, England has recoded seven wins to India’s two.

Currently, India and England are battling it out in India in this year’s test series. Lycamobile has a history embedded in sport, particularly cricket, and you can see our presence at this series.
