Joe Root has given a reasonable clue that England will pick their best Test side in the five-match Test series against India.

There has been a lot of criticism in regards to the rotation policy of the England cricket team. England’s management have rested a few players at important times to avoid fatigue. This has at times prompted an exhausted team accessible for significant matches like the Test series against India earlier this year.

 England chose to rotate semblance of Jos Buttler, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and some other players during the visit through India. It prompted a lot of analysis by numerous previous England cricketers including Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell. They had slammed the ECB for not handling their best side for the series against India. 

What Joe Root thinks of the test series against India

Joe Root said that England will pick their best Test side come the five-match Test series against India. England as of late lost their first Test series at home in quite a while. As New Zealand improved them by 1-0 in a two-match challenge.

We are coming into a period of time now where rest and rotation are put behind us. Hopefully, if everyone is fit, we are going to have our best team available for what is to follow. That’s really exciting and something I’m very much looking forward to,” Joe Root said ESPN. 

We have ten very hard Test matches against two brilliant opposition coming up. But it is a great opportunity for us to play some strong cricket. If everyone is fit and available we will have a good team ourselves,” he said.

I’d like to think that, over the next five Test matches, we’ll be trying to play our strongest side or have our strongest squad available for those games. This is, I suppose, what you do it for: to ready yourself for this lead-in and for in particular that Ashes. To make sure everyone’s peaking for that, and these big games,” he added.
