England vs India Test Series
Virat Kohli-led India takes up one of the most challenging assignments in Test cricket – winning vs England in England. India has suffered some tough losses since winning 1-0 in England in the 2007 series. However, this time, the Indian Test team will be better prepared.
Having played the WTC final in June, India’s players stayed back in England and continued to train there.
As the series kicks off on 4th August, over 60 Indian players and over 20 England players listed on Cricstox will be in action on the field across 5 Tests.
IPL 2021 – Remainder

More than 110 players across the 8 teams will be involved in some intense trading action on Cricstox.
T20 World Cup 2021
After a gap of 5 long years, the T20 World Cup will see the world’s top 16 teams battle for the big prize. A T20 world event can spring some major surprises due to the competitiveness of the format.
Hosts India will certainly have the pressure of favorites. Past champions England, West Indies, and fan favorites New Zealand are expected to be the biggest challenges.
As the tournament steadily approaches its October 17 start date, over 250 active international players and counting will be available for trading on Cricstox.
Australia vs Afghanistan Test
It might just be one Test match, but this comes as a big moment in the Asian nation’s cricket history. A first Test down under presents the perfect opportunity for Afghanistan’s players to make a mark in the longest format.
Australia will host England in the series known as the Mother of all Test cricket. England suffered a huge 4-0 loss in the 5-match series the last time the Ashes was played in Australia. Home or away, an Ashes Series win is the ultimate deal for players from both countries.
Almost 40 players across both teams are listed on Cricstox with more to come. A long 5-match Test series can make things quite exciting.
