The third Test match of the four-Test series being played between India and England will be played at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad from 24 February. In the day-night test, changes can be seen in the playing eleven of both teams. The Indian team can go with three fast bowlers for this test from Pink Ball. At the same time, England’s James Anderson, who missed the second Test, may also return. Let’s take a look at what changes can happen in Team India’s playing eleven in the third Test.
Kuldeep Yadav, who scored very little overs in the Chennai Test match, may have to sit out of the team for the day-night Test match. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah may be returned to the team in pl ace of Kuldeep. Pink ball helps fast bowlers well and due to the day-night fight, the spinner’s roll will be reduced considerably. In such a situation, it is considered certain to fall on Kuldeep in the third match. The Chinaman bowler was included in the Test team after almost two years, but he bowled very few overs in the match.
Axar Patel, who took five wickets in the second innings of his debut Test match, may have to sit out of the playing eleven in the third Test match. The third test will be a day-night match, along with it will be played with a pink ball, so this ball helps the fast bowlers more. The spin bowlers don’t get much help from the pink ball, seeing that Team India can try Hardik instead of Akshar. Hardik Pandya was not included in the T20 series played against Australia due to back problem.
