Indian team went up 1-0 in the series after a thrilling last day in the second test where they came from behind to bowl out the hosts in just 51.5 overs. England team are both mentally and physically (player injuries) hit by the loss in the second match, and they would have been delighted with the 9 days gap between the tests. They need to come back to the drawing board to re-analyse their strategies and charge their spirits for a comeback in the series. India on the other hand is very passionate and they left their team`s success noises to sound forever in the Lords. India`s rise to victory after an on-field tussle will boost any team`s morale and they will look to inflict more pain on the hosts in this match and go 2-0 in the series.
England`s batting has hugely reliant on their skipper and he has been their top run scorer in each of the four innings so far. Haseeb Hameed will open the batting with Rory Burns and Dawid Malan will slot in at No.3 in this match. Johnny Bairstow and Jos Buttler must convert their starts into big scores, and they have very able partners in the lower order with the likes of Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, and Ollie Robinson.
Ollie Robinson and Jimmy Anderson have been their chief wicket-takers with 9 wickets each in the 2 matches so far. The inclusion of Moeen Ali (3 wickets) and Mark Wood (5 wickets) strengthened their bowling attack. Sam Curran`s form is a big worry for their team. Craig Overton or Saqib Mahmood are expected to slot in as Mark wood is unfit to play.
Top Players to bet on:
Joe Root: Root has 386 runs in 2 Tests with 2 centuries and a fifty so far. His scores read 64, 109, 180* & 33 in the four innings and he looked very fluent every time he batted. We expect him to continue his purple patch in this match too.
Ollie Robinson: Robinson picked up 2 wickets in each innings to follow his five-wicket haul in the first match. He has been sharing the new ball with Jimmy Anderson and is consistently troubling the batsmen with the ball moving both ways.

Indian openers Rahul & Rohit have set the platform with two massive opening partnerships (97 & 126 in the two matches) so far. Their middle order trio of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Ajinkya Rahane are short of runs in this series so far but spent valuable time in the middle in the last test. Ravi Jadeja, Rishabh pant and other lower order batters are scoring valiant runs which are making a big difference to their total. Shami and Bumrah`s unbeaten 89-run 9th wicket partnership was the catalyst to India`s victory last game.
Indian pace attack has been one to envy with every bowler standing up for the team. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj lead their team`s wicket`s charts with 12 & 11 wickets so far. Ishant Sharma showed his experience and skills in the last game picking up 5 wickets. Shami has 7 wickets in the 2 matches so far. Ravi Jadeja`s wicket-less performances might be a concern and India might opt for Ravi Ashwin if the pitch tends to assist the spinner.
Top Players to Bet on:
KL Rahul: Rahul has scores of 89 & 129 in the two matches in the first innings batting in tough conditions and is looking all set to make a big score in this match too. He has found an able ally with Rohit Sharma at the other end.
Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah has 12 wickets in the 4 innings so far and has dismissed Joe Root thrice so far. He was the centre of attraction in the last game after altercation with Anderson but came out all guns blazing with both bat and ball.

Leeds will have windy conditions and might cause the ball to move off the air considerably. The first four days are expected to have bright and clear skies while some rains are predicted for Day 5. We expect a full match like the second Test here.
Headingly is a pace-friendly pitch, and we expect pacers to take the centre stage in this match too. Spinners might have to play support act to the pacers with no dryness or roughness in the track expected anytime. Teams will look to score nearly 350-400 runs in this match.
Teams might opt to bowl first as the pitch will have some spice for the first day and might flatten out as the match progresses in days 2,3, & 4 considerably. Teams scored 67 & 179 in the first two innings while third and fourth innings had scores of 246 & 362 respectively.
India is high on confidence and morale after the win and their biggest worry is the middle order batting and with all 3 players scoring 40+ runs in the last match might be a sample for bigger things to come. England`s batting is in a mess with joe Root being the only consistent performer for a long time. India`s pace attack easily outclasses English attack as all bowlers are contributing with crucial wickets and have 5-10 kmph pace higher than most English counterparts. Spinners won`t have a big role in this match too. We expect Indian team to win this match and go 2-0 in the series.
INDIA will win the match and lead the series 2-0
