New Delhi. India, led by captain Virat Kohli, reached the final of the World Test Championship (WTC WTC) in the third Test match (third test match) against England at Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera on Wednesday. Will come to strengthen the claim. The third match of the four-match Test series between India and England will be played with Day-Night and Pink Ball. England defeated India (India) in the first Test played in Chennai, while Team India defeated England in the second Test in the series 1–1.
Has been prepared in a new way. The stadium at Motera has been designed in a new way for the Indian team and the new pitch is completely new here. So far the Indian team has played only two Test matches with pink ball. The first Test played in Adelaide against Australia in December last year was played with pink ball, where Team India suffered a crushing defeat. The Indian team was reduced to just 36 in the second innings, their lowest score in Test history.
England will play the last ball against New Zealand in Auckland in March 2018 against England. India played the first day-night Test against Bangladesh in November 2019. There is a possibility that India may change the strategy of playing three spinners in the team for the third Test. The Indian team played three spinners in the first two Tests played in Chennai. Fast bowlers took the most wickets in the day-night test. In India’s first day-night Test against Bangladesh, Ravindra Jadeja bowled two and Ravichandran Ashwin bowled just five overs.
Batsmen will get full benefit: Rohit Sharma
Fast bowler Umesh Yadav took eight wickets in India’s first day-night test. It is a relief for India that Umesh has passed the fitness test and he has declared fit to join the team for the next two Tests. Meanwhile Ishant Sharma is also ready for his 100th Test. However, according to team opener Rohit Sharma, the pitch is helpful for pitches and there is no change in pitch as compared to the second Test.
Batting on Root and Stokes,
England may include James Anderson and Joffra Archer in the squad for the third Test. Both these fast bowlers were not included in the second Test. Anderson remained out of the squad due to England’s rotation policy, while Archer could not play in the match due to injury. The responsibility of England’s batting order will once again be on the shoulders of captain Joe Root and Ben Stokes. However, with the return of Johnny Bairstow in the team, the English team’s batting order is expected to be slightly stronger.
Team India would like to win under any circumstances,
The Indian team would not like to take any risk and avoid losing. Team India’s defeat is one of the next two Tests, which can make way for the WTC. India will have to capture the series to win the next two Tests and reach the final.
