Team India will take on England in the third Test starting on Wednesday, February 24, at the Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad. The all important third Test for both sides will be played with the pink ball and it will be a day-night fixture.
Despite being completely outplayed by England in the first Test in Chennai,India made a strong comeback to record one of their largest ever wins (by runs) in Test cricket with a memorable 317 run victory in the second Test to level the four-match Test series 1-1 at the same venue.
Ahead of the all-important third Test, both sides have announced few key changes to their playing XI. Umesh Yadav joins the team in place of Shardul Thakur, while KL Rahul is fit to feature as well. The visitors rotated their side to manage some players' workload as Jonny Bairstow and Mark Wood will mark their return. However, they will be without the services of Moeen Ali, who'll miss out on the last two Tests of the series.
Indian’s look capable of getting another win and will look to go 2-1 in the series. However, the English cannot be ruled out to spring a surprise on the hosts.
