Ben Stokes and Rohit Sharma lead the way as England take on India in their fifth and final Test match.
However, since the two teams last met, there have been two major changes in the teams – both are led by a different captain.
Additionally, Virat Kohli resigned from his role as Test captain of the Indian team after they suffered a Test series loss to South Africa.
All-rounder Ben Stokes has now captained the England squad, while first batter Rohit Sharma has stepped in for India as skipper.
The Durham all-rounder is hoping his recent successes against New Zealand can help lead them to a series draw as they currently trail 2-1 against India.
