    India on top in the 3rd Test, finish Day 1 on 99/3 after bowling England out for 112 in Ahmedabad

    It is all to play for in the third Test, with both teams well aware a defeat here will end their hopes of making the ICC World Test Championship final.

    Overview

    India v England, 3rd Test
    Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad
    24-28 February, 2:30pm local time


    And what a venue to house to this pivotal clash.

    Ahmedabad’s Sardar Patel Stadium will host its first international match since being reconstructed as the world’s biggest cricket venue, boasting a capacity of 110,000. While it will be at reduced capacity for the match, it looms as the perfect venue for the two Tests which will ultimately decide who joins New Zealand in the decider later this year.

    For England, this match is all or nothing. They must win this Test and the following one. Only a 3-1 series win can see them go through to the final.

    For India, a defeat here would end their hopes of winning the series and of making the WTC final. They must finish this series as victors to reach the decider.

    A draw would see England's chances dashed but India's dreams still alive, heading into the final Test.

    ICC WTC StandingsICC WTC Standings
    Last time out, India defeated England by 317 runs, riding an all-star performance from Ravichandran Ashwin (5/43, 3/53 and 106) and a century from Rohit Sharma (161) to a series-levelling victory.

    It was a match dominated by the spinners and while they will likely again play a big role in the third Test, England will be hoping a shift to day-night cricket and the pink ball offers their seamers more assistance.

    History suggests that should be the case. Across the 15 men’s day-night Tests played so far, seamers have taken 354 wickets at an average of 24.47, while spinners have taken 115 at 35.38. The lone day-night Test that has been played in India so far, in 2019 between the hosts and Bangladesh, saw 27 wickets fall to seam and only one to spin.

    Who will join New Zealand in the WTC final?Who will join New Zealand in the WTC final?
    Nevertheless, it would be unwise to expect anything but another star showing from Ashwin. He has 17 wickets at 17.82 so far this series, and shone with the pink ball in Australia recently, taking 4/55 in the first innings at Adelaide Oval.

    Indeed, India’s bowlers have enjoyed themselves whenever they have used the pink ball. Ishant Sharma averages 8.66 with it, Ashwin 18.00, and the fit-again Umesh Yadav 15.54. Jasprit Bumrah’s lone day-night outing, in Adelaide, has his average sitting at 39.50 but you can expect that number to improve sooner rather than later.

    In the opposite corner, James Anderson looms as the key man in England’s attack. He averages 17.85 with the pink ball. He has also been in serious form this year, taking 11 wickets at 9.90. Both matches he has played in 2021 have been in Asia.

    If Jofra Archer recovers from the elbow injury that ruled him out of the second Test, then expect him to enjoy himself too.

    Look out for

    Virat Kohli: It has been more than a year since Kohli last scored a Test century – a period in which he has only played five matches in fairness – but he has not been too far off posting a score of serious note and he just might be due in Ahmedabad.

    The Indian captain’s 62 in the second innings of the second Test was a serious display of batting in turning conditions, and there was plenty to like in his 72 in the first Test. Before that, he looked on course for a century at Adelaide Oval against Australia, easing his way to 74 before a horror mix-up saw him run out.

    Ominously for England, his last century came in India’s first day-night Test and he averages 71.33 against the pink ball.

    Joe Root: Like his opposite number, Root shapes as the key man in England’s batting order against the pink ball. The England captain enjoyed his first outing under lights against the West Indies, scoring a century in 2017. While he hasn’t climbed such lofty heights since, he has managed a 50+ score in each of his two day-night Tests since then.

    Putting the pink ball aside, he shapes as the form Test batsman in the world alongside Kane Williamson. The last match, where he made scores of 6 and 33, ended a run of three Tests with 150+ innings.

    Remember the last time

    Bar the opening session on day one, India dominated the second Test at Chennai, finishing as comfortable and deserved 317-run winners.

    The foundations of that victory were laid by a 162-run stand between Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane that took India from 3-86 to a total of 329. Sharma scored a brilliant 161 off 231 and Rahane a classy 67 before Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten 58 put the hosts firmly in the driver’s seat.

    A five-wicket haul from Ashwin (5/43) then saw England rolled for 134 in their first innings. He then put to bed any hopes the tourists had of victory, scoring a second-innings century (106) and enjoying a 96-run stand with Kohli to put India out of sight.

    Debutant Axar Patel rounded out a perfect Test for India, taking 5/60 to bowl England out for 164 despite an entertaining 43 off 18 from Moeen Ali.

    Squads

    India: Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, Umesh Yadav

    England: Joe Root (c), James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Ben Foakes, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

    I think India should go with:-

    Rohit
    Gill
    Pujara
    Kohli
    Rahane
    Pant
    Axar
    Ashwin
    Yadav
    Ishant
    Bumrah

    Since there is enough for spinners too, Ashwin and Axar will be handy too.

    Siraj got only 1 wicket in the 2nd Test, but bowled only 8 overs for 11 runs which I thought was very good.

    Pity Shardul Thakur was not included. He was India's leading wicket taker with 7 wickets and also scored 64 in the 1st innings.

    I won't mind that either. But if Umesh is fully fit, I will pick him ahead of Siraj. He was brilliant in last pink ball test too.

    It is a difficult decision to make between Umesh and Siraj. Umesh has been performing tremendously at home for sometime, has got both conventional and reverse swing and can produce freakish spells out of nowhere while Siraj brings the consistency, discipline and accuracy to the table.

    This is a beautiful stadium and the largest in the world. India should use it at their premier cricket ground moving forward. Eden Gardens has run its course.

    This is going to be another crucial toss, especially for England.

    Embarrassment of riches.

    [Umesh] has been particularly devastating at home since 2018, averaging 13.86 with 38 wickets in seven games. His average and strike rate (24.3) in that period are the best in India of any bowler, given a minimum of three Tests played.

    Hard to leave Umesh out given his home record.

    Too much talk about the pink ball. CricViz showed the new pink ball swings more than the new red ball, but then does less than the red once it gets old.

    Suspect the bigger issue is one of visibility.

    Seems like both Umesh and Siraj are out, bummer!

    Pandya may have been the way to go. He is rested and can produce best batting or bowling figures.

    Both the teams have read the pitch differently.
    One is going with 4 pacers other is going with only two.
    Actually i think India should have chosen a fast bowler above one of the spinner.

    Chalo atleast we have a long batting lineup.

    All hoopla about pace bowling under lights and Kohli goes with three spinners, if this goes well it will be a masterstroke otherwise he will be heavily criticised.

    Kohli will always pick Axar or Jadeja alongside Ashwin. That is confirmed now.

    Pandya has been chosen as a specialist batsman for this tour. His back isn't fully ready for him to bowl long spells which is a requirement in tests.

    Team management doesn't rate him highly. Them not selecting him in Pink Ball test proves it.

    Ishant on the money with that line and length. There will be exaggerated movement with the new pink, but it does get easier.

    England must survive these first 15 overs.

    Pandya has been chosen as a specialist batsman for this tour. His back isn't fully ready for him to bowl long spells which is a requirement in tests. So playing Pandya instead of rahane or kohli or pujara was out of the picture.

    6mm of grass was left on the Kolkata pitch in the day-nighter vs Bangladesh.

    Not sure how much grass has been left here but you need a decent covering to protect the pink ball.

    England must take advantage whenever the seamers are overpitching trying to maximise swing. Hopefully these boundaries will settle the nerves.

    Both the seamers looking for swing, pitching it up and getting hit for boundaries. Need to bowl that nagging length.

    Crawley looking good.

    He went to Mumbai a few years ago at his own expense to improve his game against spin. A very determined character, unlucky to have missed out on the first 2 Tests with injury.
