The English cricket team toured India between November 2016 and January 2017 playing five Tests, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed the dates of the tour in July 2016. India last hosted a five-Test series in 1986–87 against Pakistan.

India agreed to use DRS for these series against England on trial basis to evaluate the improvements made in the system. This was the first time since 2008 that there was a bilateral series involving India with all the components of the review system in place, including "Ultra Edge". However, Hot Spot was not amongst the tools available to be used. DRS was used in the ODI series between the two teams.

The Test series was played for Anthony De Mello Trophy, with India winning the 5-match series 4–0. During the fifth Test of the series, India made their highest total ever in Test cricket, scoring 759 runs for 7 wickets before declaring their innings. India's victory in the fifth Test broke their record for consecutive Tests without defeat, taking their total to eighteen unbeaten matches. They also finished the year with nine Test victories, the most ever for India.

Prior to the naming of the squads for the ODI and T20I matches, MS Dhoni announced that he was standing down as India's limited-overs captain. Virat Kohli was appointed as captain for the ODI and T20I fixtures. Dhoni played in what was planned to be his final match as captain of an Indian team in the first 50-over tour match against England XI on 10 January 2017. However, he would return to the captaincy in September 2018, during the 2018 Asia Cup.

The ODI series was a high scoring series with an aggregate of 2,090 runs being scored, which was the highest number of runs in a series of three or fewer matches. All the innings in the series recorded a score of more than 300. India won the ODI series 2–1 and the T20I series by the same margin. It was the first time that India had won a T20I bilateral series against England.
