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.
