India, on the other hand, are yet to win a Test match on this ground. They have lost four and draw five in nine Test matches played against England here.

Men in blue who are leading 2-1 in the series, have won three, lost one and draw one in the last five Test matches played against the host.

Old Trafford has hosted Test matches since 1884 and remains a special venue with a rich history. It guaranteed itself a place in cricket's eternal hall of fame when the permanently understated Jim Laker destroyed Australia, in 1956, on an old-fashioned "sticky wicket", with
match figures of 19 for 90.

Australia were the victims again in 1981 when Ian Botham lit up a damp Manchester day by hooking Dennis Lillee off his eyebrows into the stands, and in 1995 Dominic Cork ensured anyone having a Sunday morning snooze was rudely woken with one of the most dramatic opening overs ever seen, as he took his hat-trick against West Indies.

July 19, 1952 is a day Indian cricket would never want to recollect. This was a day when the side was bowled out twice in a day of Test cricket, 58 runs in the first innings and 82 runs in the second and hurtled towards a massive defeat. A total of 22 wickets fell in one single day of play at Old Trafford. England won the Test by an innings and 207 runs after making 347 runs for nine in their only innings.

FOR THE RECORD

** Joe Root who scored 2353 runs at an average of 60.33 in 43 innings of 24 Test matches, needs 78 runs to become the highest run-getter for England against India. Alastair Cook with 2431 runs at an average of 47.66 in 54 innings of 30 Test matches, holds the record for
England against India.

** Virat Kohli who scored 1960 runs at an average of 43.55 in 48 innings of 27 Tests, needs 40 runs to become the third Indian after Sachin Tendulkar (2535 runs in 32 Tests) and Sunil Gavaskar (2483 runs in 38 Tests) to score 2000 runs against England.

** Umesh Yadav, who played 49 Test matches since 2011, will become the 35th Indian player to complete a half-century of Test matches.
