  • 09:09 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Here is what England skipper says –

    “We would’ve batted first too. (On playing his 100th Test) Time flies when you’re having fun. The series has been a fair reflection of both teams, we’ve been very happy with the way we’ve gone about things in the first two Tests. We had a nice break, gave everyone a chance to relax. There was no cricket, we got the families out, it was great. Being here for so long is both physically and mentally demanding. Was a nice opportunity to put the feet up and get some time away from cricket. In Test matches there are only so many moments that you seize the game in and that’s what India did in the last one. Just one change for us,” said Ben Stokes.

  • 09:03 (IST)

    India vs England Live: India opt to bat first!

    India skipper Rohit Sharma has won the toss and opted to bat first. “Looks a good pitch, better than the last two we’ve played on. Rajkot is known to be a good pitch but it’ll deteriorate as it goes. The guys have stood up and done the job for the team when it was needed. The next three Test matches will be as exciting as the first two. Need to keep our focus here and see how we can do well,” said the India captain after winning the toss.

  • 08:52 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Sarfaraz and Jurel make debut!

    Sarfaraz Khan and Dhruv Jurel have been handed their Test caps. This is a big-big moment for both the players, especially Sarfaraz who had been knocking at the doors of the selectors for quite a long time by consistently scoring runs in the domestic format.

  • 08:41 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Jurel could replace Bharat!

    Wicketkeeper KS Bharat’s persistent failures with the bat has raised the possibility of India turning to Uttar Pradesh’s 23-year-old Dhruv Jurel, who is known for his aggressive batting. With an average of 46.47 in 15 First-Class matches, Jurel has given a fine account of himself. With the pitch at Rajkot not expected to be a rank turner, a debut at this venue would only help Jurel ease into the world of top flight cricket.

  • 08:38 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Sarfaraz Khan in line to make debut!

    Rahul’s unavailability for the third Test has put forth the possibility of Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan getting his long awaited debut in the longest format. The domestic run machine could be teaming up with one-Test old Rajat Patidar to occupy two of the most coveted batting spots in the middle order.

  • 08:37 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Rohit the batter under scanner

    Skipper Rohit Sharma’s form with the bat before the eight-day break only added to the growing concern surrounding the Indian batting, which will be without KL Rahul in this game and Virat Kohli for the entirety of the series. Over the last one year or so, Rohit’s aggressive approach with the bat has not yielded him big scores and the current situation demands the Indian skipper to perhaps contemplate changing gears.

  • 08:35 (IST)

    India vs England Live: India’s middle-order a concern!

    The brilliance of Yashasvi Jaiswal (321 runs) and Jasprit Bumrah (15) allowed India to make a comeback in the series but concerns remain over a misfiring middle-order, which will now be relying on the young talent to deliver the goods.

  • 08:26 (IST)

    India vs England Live: England’s XI already announced!

    England announced their playing XI for the third Test on the eve of the start of the game. Mark Wood replaced Shoaib Bashir in the team.

    Here is England XI for Rajkot Test: Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (C), Ben Foakes, Rehan Ahmed, Tom Hartley, Mark Wood, James Anderson

  • 08:24 (IST)

    India vs England Live: A series perfectlly poised!

    India will need to be ruthless and tactful in equal measure while dealing with an unpredictable England when the third chapter of a riveting Test series begins in Rajkot on Thursday. After England shocked India in the series opener at Hyderabad, the hosts came back strong in Vizag to get on level footing, leaving the five-match series perfectly poised. Now, both the sides will be eager to register their second win.
