England take on India in a five-Test series starting on Wednesday at Edgbaston and we look at the key statistics ahead of the showdown.

43-25 - England's all-time winning record against India, with 49 draws.

4-0 - England suffered a heavy defeat in their last series against India, on tour in 2016. They won 3-1 on India's last visit to England.

10 - Test fifties for England captain Joe Root since he last went on to make a century. Since his career-best 254 against Pakistan in 2016, he has converted only three out of 23 half-centuries into three figures - but he made back-to-back tons in the one-day series.

75 - England's uncapped seamer Jamie Porter led the County Championship Division One wicket charts last season. He has 28 at an average of 26.82 so far this season.

0 - first-class matches played by recalled England spinner Adil Rashid this summer after renegotiating a white-ball only contract with Yorkshire.

13.40 - Virat Kohli's batting average on India's last tour of England. His career Test average is 53.40.

9 - Test innings without a century for India's Cheteshwar Pujara, with his top score in that time 50 from 179 balls against South Africa in January. He averaged only 14.33 for Yorkshire in this summer's Championship, failing to pass 50 in 12 innings, but impressed in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

14 - wickets taken by Kuldeep Yadav across the one-day and Twenty20 legs of the current tour, at an average of 14.71, to earn Test selection.

303 - runs scored by India's Karun Nair in his match-winning undefeated innings in the last Test between the two teams in December 2016 in Chennai. In six Tests to date, his next-highest score is 26.
