India will play 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 5 Tests on their 2018 tour to England.

Virat Kohli has decided to have a stint with Surrey in English county cricket before the 2018 tour to England

After the debacle of losing the Test series against South Africa, the Indian team had to analyze what went wrong. One of the main reasons along with batting failure was the unfamiliarity of Indian players with South African pitches and lack of practice in local conditions before the Tests series.

Learning a lesson from that players like Cheteshwar Pujara, R Ashwin, and Ishant Sharma have already secured deals with English counties to play in the county cricket, before the Indian tour of England in July 2018. The 5 Tests series will begin from August, as the tour will start with 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs.

Even Indian captain Virat Kohli will play for Surrey in the English county cricket after IPL, to prepare for England tour.

Taking inspiration from these players, many more players should look for a county cricket stint in order to get familiarized with the English conditions.
