IND 307/6 Day 1
India vs England 3rd test match of India tour of England series being played in Trent Bridge Nottingham from 18 Aug 2018 to 22 Aug 2018. England has won previous two matches of this series of 5 test matches. Team India did a very bad performance in both previous test matches. Team India has a strong batting order but in previous matches, it looked very weak. Only Virat Kohli and R Aswin bated well and scored some useful runs but other batsmen couldn’t do well, that was the cause by which India lost their first two matches.
Team India has changed many of their players for this match to expect a good result. It may be beneficial or not only should be decided after watching live cricket score. Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant may replace respectively Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Kartik. Shikhar Dhawan may join the team for this match in place of K L Rahul or Murli Vijay.
Pitch report shows that it may be helpful longtime for seemers so J Anderson could do well for England. Pitch will stay good for a long time so batting even on the last session would be good. In this Ind vs Eng 3rd test match, team India will have to give their best performance to save the series. After changing the structure of teams look like this.

Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Panth(w), Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawa, K L Rahul, Cheteswar Pujara, Hardik Pandya, R Aswin, Mohammad Sami, Ishant Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah.
