Manchester, Aug 6: The fourth Test starts at Old Trafford tomorrow (August 7) and India have not won a Test here in 8 attempts since 1936.

Full Coverage of the tour

If MS Dhoni and his men manage to win this Test and take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series, it will be a historic one for India and a first at the venue in 78 years.

Can MS Dhoni-led India end 78-year wait?

India first played England at this venue way back in 1936 and that contest ended in a draw. Since then, they have locked horns 8 times here and the hosts won thrice and 5 ended in draws.

This will be the 9th Test between the sides at Old Trafford and the current Indian team will be hoping to create history.
