India Tour of England, 2018

England vs India 3rd Test Match Preview

Ahead of the 3rd test in Trent Bridge, both England and India are facing an ample of playing combinations amongst which they need to pick the right one. Picking up Kuldeep Yadav at Lord’s was not an ideal selection for India and both Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri have stated that. However, once again they would be facing the same dilemma of going with two spinners or three pacers. And, with Trent Bridge being referred to as seamers’ paradise, it looks like they won’t repeat the same mistake.

On the opposite, England would be thinking about their top order failure. The top order hasn’t come good so far in both the test matches. Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings both have failed to give a good start. Also, with the availability of Ben Stokes, management will have to take a tough call on Ben Stokes or Chris Woakes or Sam Curran. Another thing which would be worrying England is their poor win rate at Trent Bridge, Among all the other venues, England hold’s the lowest win rate at Trent Bridge.

Moreover, the biggest battle for India is to grab a win here and keep the series alive. They lost the first Test at Edgbaston by a whisker but what followed it up was a humiliating innings and 159 runs defeat at Lord’s. The hosts lead the 5 matches series by 2-0 and another win here will provide them an unassailable lead.

ENG vs IND Team News:

England have announced an unchanged squad with Ben Stokes added later.

With Jasprit Bumrah regaining his fitness, India would be thinking about bringing him in at Kuldeep Yadav’s place.

India could undergo one more change. If the net practice is to believe as the basis for selection, R Pant is a sure shot replacement for Dinesh Karthik.

Both KL Rahul and Murali Vijay have looked off color and with Shikhar Dhawan sitting out in the bench, nothing concrete can be said about the top order.
