New Delhi:  Team India will take on England in the first test from July 9 hoping this time they turn the tables around and perform better than the last time when the team received  a comprehensive drubbing in the hands of the English players . Lets take a look on how India performed on the British soil in their last five tours.

1990 :

It was in 1990 that India toured England and it was in Manchester that the world for the first time saw  a batting legend showing his signs of batting greatness. Sachin tendulkar scored his first century in test scoring a brilliant 119 not out. India had already won the One day series by a scoreline of 2-0 and were getting to face them in the longer format of the game. It was Graham Gooch's 333 and 123 which guided England to a 247 run win.
That was enough to secure the series 1-0. A batting paradise at Manchester produced a great game, India finishing on 343 for 6 chasing 408. Mohammad Azharuddin his second successive hundred. At The Oval, India made England follow on, but David Gower, playing for his place on that winter's Ashes tour, made a brilliant 157 to save the match.The scoreline was Tests: England 1 India 0 Drawn 2
ODIs: England 0 India 2
