Both the teams are in great form and will try to gain the decisive lead over the other by winning this game. Skipper Joe Root is in excellent form and the double ton in the 1st game has given him the confidence to bounce back in the tournament. India, on the other hand, has claimed the last game and are a bit relaxed now. The overall team performance was excellent in the 2nd game while Ashwin gave the required extra boost. Form of Virat Kohli is also a matter of concern and the new ground will test both the teams pretty well.

India vs England 3rd Test:

Venue: Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad

Date & Time: Feb 24-Feb 28, 02:30 PM

India Expected Playing XI: Shubhman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravi Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Md Siraj, Ishant Sharma.

England Expected Playing XI: Joe Root, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes.

Ind vs Eng Team Comparison: Both the teams look pretty balanced and the result of the first two games has shown the same. Starting from the batting side, the top order of England is strong and in-form. Crawley, Burns, Sibley and Root are in great form and Strokes in the bottom end contributes valuable runs to the total. The batting side was a bit exposed against the spin attack in the 2nd game but Root has scored a double ton on the same pitch, in the 1st game. However, the Indian side has a weak top order but a strong lower order. Rohit finally got his form in the last game but Pujara, Kohli and Rahane struggled in the same game. Gill also lost his wicket early in the game making the lower order batsmen play the crucial role.

The Indian bowling side looks a bit better than the visitor’s as Indian spinners Ashwin and Axar took a 5 wickets haul in both of the innings of the 2nd game. On a turning track, Indian bowlers can be more devastating and Ahmedabad is sure to help the spinners. Team India will take a last decision on pacers just before the game. England will depend upon Jack Leach and Joe Root in this game as well. Root will have to contribute with both bat and ball in the coming games to overpower the hosts.
Ind vs Eng 3rd Test Overall Match Prediction: Considering the Expected Playing XI and their current form, this game can go either ways. Team England is a strong side and can be a tough competitor against India in the changed environment. India will also try to get the lead in the series but this will definitely be a closely contested game. The first ball of the 3rd Test will be thrown at 2:30 PM on Wednesday 24 February. Live Cricket Scores will be available on cricdaddy.com from 02:00 PM.
