Nottingham for fast bowlers than spinners
Nottingham’s ground is heavy on the fast bowlers. Against England’s fast bowlers, the Indian batting seemed to be struggling badly in the Lord’s. During the 6 matches between India and England on the field, Pacers has hit 149 wickets and spinners have taken only 34 wickets.
The last time the two teams were drawing was a fight
Trent Bridge looks very different from the Pitch 2014 (when the two teams were clashing here last time). India had declared on 457 in nine innings and 391 for nine wickets on the flat pitch, in which England had scored 496 runs while batting once and it was a draw.
According to the weather forecast, the first four days of the third test will be clouded and the Indian team will keep this in mind if they will definitely take the same spinner.
After trailing 0-2, captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri would like to make the right team combination. In this way, the Indian team will play in 38 matches under the captain of Kohli in such a similar combination.
The biggest change will be the Test debut of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who will replace Dinesh Karthik in the form of poor form who has played his last international match in the long format.
Apart from scores of zero, 20, one and zero in four innings, poor performance in wicketkeeping also saw Karthik Pant doing caching exercises.
Born in Roorkee, this young man will have to face the bowlers like James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes and Sam Quair, who will be ready to raise their problems as they have done for their senior players.
While there is so much interest in Pant’s debut, fans may also be hoping that captain Kohli fit to bat.
