Teams Preview

India Preview

India made a superb comeback to win the second test with Rohit Sharma (161 runs) and Ravi Ashwin (104 runs) leading the team with their centuries in first and second innings respectively. Skipper Virat Kohli (62 runs), Ajinkya Rahane (67 runs), and Rishab Pant (58* runs) played vital knocks at crucial junctures on a wearing pitch.

Ravi Ashwin lead the bowling from front on a spin friendly track with 8 wickets in the match. Axar Patel had a memorable debut with five-wicket haul in second innings and match haul of 7 wickets. Ishant Sharma continued bowling his probing lines and was rewarded with 2 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah will replace Kuldeep and Umesh Yadav might come in ahead of Siraj due to his ability to bowl faster consistently.

Top Players to look for:

Ravi Ashwin - Ashwin is having a dream series with 17 wickets and a century to his name in this series so far. He needs 6 wickets to reach 400 wickets milestone and will be looking to get it in this match.

Virat Kohli – Kohli has played two crucial knocks of 7 & 62 in second innings of both matches and will look to put a big century in this match to end his century drought for more than a year.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Siraj/Umesh Yadav

England Preview

England lost steam in the last game and were bowled out for 134 & 164 in the last game. No player managed to get a 50+ score in the game. Ben Foakes was impressive with his keeping and batting skills in the last game. Johnny Bairstow might come in ahead of Dan Lawrence in this game.

James Anderson and Jofra Archer will return to the playing XI with a toss-up between Broad, Woakes, and Olly Stone for the third seamer`s position. Jack leach will be the lone spinner in their team with Moeen Ali leaving back to England. Dom Bess might get a nod is they think pitch will assist spinners.

Top Players to look for:

Joe Root - Root has been the batting stalwart in the Asian consitions with 600 runs in 3 matches but he faltered in both the innings last game. He will look to score a big score in this match to help his team win. 

James Anderson – Anderson is one of the deadliest exponents of the swing on offer. A pink ball under lights has known to do a little more and we expect Anderson to trouble the abtsmen consistently with his abilities. 

England Predicted Playing XI:

Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Johnny Bairstow, Joe Root (c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes (wk), James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach, Jofra Archer

Weather Conditions

Ahmedabad will have bright and sunny weather on the all five days of the game and we expect the cracks in the pitch to open on Days 4 & 5 considerably.

Venue Details

We expect the pitch to aid bowlers and batsmen will find it hard to score easily on this lively track. We can expect first innings score to be around 300-350 runs and any score above 400 will be tough to chase here.

Toss: To Bowl

Batting first is best option in sub-continental tracks as the pitch will deteriorate and batting becomes very difficult as the match progresses.



IND vs ENG Winning Prediction

India has been one of toughest places to conquer in the past decade and England has been the only team to do it after 2010. Indian team has a good batting line -up with experienced players in top & middle order. England lack the experience in the middle order and will depend heavily on the likes of Root and Stokes with the bat. Both teams have a good pace attack but Ravi Ashwin stands league apart from his English counterparts so far. We expect India to win this match and take lead 2-1 in the 4-match series. 

INDIA will win the match and lead the series 2-1!
