Our Top Tips for India vs England 3rd Test

The series is all tied at 1-1 and India have resorted to a dry and dusty track at the new Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad if the pictures of the pitch one day out from the game is anything to go by.

England were thrashed in the second Test on a rank turner and despite voicing concerns about the pitch, India are adamant to not let them get ahead of the game and there’s another one that assists spin in front of them.

In the recent past India have relied on their more-than-handy pace attack to thwart teams at home but in this series it was always a risky move with the kind of fast bowlers at England’s disposal. That said, both sides could still field three pacers with Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah expected to come back into the XI for India.

One all and a final at Lords to play for!

Cricket Betting

England are likely to play James Anderson ahead of Stuart Broad with Jofra Archer’s return after injury seeing Olly Stone sidelined. The batting is of more concern for England and there might be changes in the offing there too. Moeen Ali, who returned home after the last Test, is also missing.

The lighting in the new Motera stadium could be in focus as it prepares itself for the first Test match at the venue. The pink ball under lights already has visibility issues and the lack of floodlights, instead being lit by LED lights around the roof, has made catching difficult under light in domestic games here.

Match Event Top Markets

Team news: India

Axar Patel and R Ashwin will continue to lead the spin attack with Bumrah, Umesh and Ishant leading the pace attack. Ishant is set to play his 100th Test match, the second Indian quick to the feat. India are likely to keep Kuldeep Yadav on the sidelines with Mohammed Siraj also making way to accomodate the two returning seamers.

Team news: England

Jofra Archer has recovered and should step back in alongside Anderson, who was rested for the previous game. Rory Burns, who has had a poor run of form at the top in the last few series might make way for Zak Crawley. Jonny Bairstow is also set to feature while Moeen Ali could be replaced by Dom Bess.

Predicted XI

India: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma

England: Zak Crawley, Dom Sibley, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root (c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes (wk), Dom Bess Jack Leach, Jofra Archer, James Anderson

Key players

Axar Patel: He might have made his Test debut just last match, but what Axar Patel brings is relentless accuracy to complement the wile of R Ashwin. If England thought they could breathe easy once Ashwin is off the attack, Axar has ensured that isn’t the case. Armed with a pink ball under lights, Axar could prove to be really dangerous if he can get his lines right. England, meanwhile, will be banking on some runs from his end, forcing them to attack the tall left-arm spinner.

Jofra Archer: His return was much awaited and after a destructive role in the first Test, Archer is back after missing the second Test with an injury. The quick bowler is a dangerous proposition for India in a day/night Test with the pink ball, particularly since it’s played on a new wicket. Archer, alongside Anderson, will hope to test India early in the game when the ball is new. Archer’s ability to come back with short balls if the pitch doesn’t aid swing and seam further makes India’s task difficult against him.
