Match Facts
  • Joe Root has averaged 81 across his six previous Test knocks at Trent Bridge; three of his last four innings there have seen him post scores of 78, 130 & 154*.
  • Murali Vijay comes into this game having recorded a pair at Lord's; he's only scored 135 runs across his 11 Test innings outside of Asia since the start of 2016, averaging just 12.3.
  • Anderson comes into this game having become only the second seamer to reach 550 Test wickets (Glenn McGrath) as well as recording his 100th Test scalp at Lord's; he is only seven dismissals away from becoming the all-time leading wicket-taker against India (currently Muralitharan, 105).
  • James Anderson has taken more Test wickets at Trent Bridge than anybody else, claiming his 60 scalps there at an average of 19; his teammate Stuart Broad claimed his best ever Test innings figures at this ground (8/15 v Australia, 2015); the Nottinghamshire bowler has registered 37 Test wickets at Trent Bridge, averaging 20.4 in the process.
  • All six England bowlers used in this Test series so far have managed better averages across the Edgbaston and Lord's games than the six to feature for India.
  • England lost in their last Test outing at Trent Bridge by a margin of 340 runs (v South Africa, 2017); England have lost 28% of their Tests at the Nottingham venue, only at Headingley (33%) have they suffered a higher loss percentage at home (2+ Tests played).
  • A victory or a draw in this game for England will mean they go nine home Test series unbeaten; their last Test series defeat on home soil came in 2014 versus Sri Lanka.
  • England have claimed wins in three successive Test matches; a victory at Trent Bridge would equal their longest such run since putting together a string of six wins in a row back in 2010.
  • Just one of England's last 29 Test matches to have been played on home soil has ended in a draw (W19, L9); Joe Root's men have claimed victory in seven of their last nine in England (L2).
