The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has put an end to the speculations over England cricket team's returning to India for the two-Test series as it has agreed to send the team to India for the Test series.

The first Test that was to be played in Ahmedabad from 11 to 15 December has been shifted at Chennai, while Mohali will now be hosting the second Test starting from 19 to 23 December. The three-day tour match has been called off.

However, ECB will be sending their security consultant for discussions with the Authorities in India before final clearance is given for the Tour.
