The India vs England series is evenly poised at the moment with England, to everybody’s surprise hammered India in the first test only to lose the 2nd test by 317 runs which meant that day-night test will see one team going 2-1 up.
Both the teams are pumped up to play in the world’s largest cricket stadium situated at Ahmedabad. So far in the first 2 games, the wicket didn’t offer much help to fast bowlers except for that crazy spell from James Anderson in the first test where he extracted some unplayable reverse swing. This, being the day-night game, one can expect both the teams to go in with at least 3 genuine fast bowlers as there will be massive help for faster bowlers.
India rested Jasprit Bumrah for the 2nd game knowing that there won’t be any need for Jasprit Bumrah as a turner was rolled out. India played with 3 spinners in the 2nd game and in all likelihood, India will go in with 3 fast bowlers in the 3rd test with Kuldeep Yadav paving way for Jasprit Bumrah.
England rested both their pacers for the 2nd test who played in the 1st game but they will be needing the services of James Anderson and Jofra Archer in the pink ball test which would mean Olly Stone and Jack Leach missing out from the playing 11.
They will also be welcoming Zak Crawley who was seen in good form in the English summer in place of Daniel Lawrence.
