India won the toss and elected to bat first in the third Test of the India-England series. The Indian team will retain the winning team today. Indian team leads the series 1. Kohli and his team are aiming to increase their lead by winning this match. England, meanwhile, are set to make amends for their defeat at home.

India beat England by 151 runs in the second Test at Lord’s. In terms of performance in the series, India lags behind the bowling department in batting, especially in the middle order. The fact that senior players like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are not able to score big scores is a minor concern. Pujara, India’s most loyal Test batsman, is the most disappointing. There was an opinion that Suryakumar Yadav should be considered instead of Pujara.

Mohammad Shami, Jaspreet Bumra, Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Siraj are all in good form. Apart from bowling in the Load Test, it is a relief for India to be able to shine in batting as well. The performance of the openers also gives great hope. The Rohit Sharma-KL Rahul duo have been batting well in the series.

The last Test between India and England was played in Leeds in 2002. Therefore, this is the first time that players from both teams will play a Test match in Leeds. In this situation, it will be crucial for the senior players in the team to rise with the opportunity. The performance of the batting line-up will be crucial in England where bowlers have more support.

The injury threat of players is a big headache for England, who are trailing in the series. Mark Wood, who had a great performance in the Lord’s Test, was ruled out with a hamstring injury. In addition to injury, batting is also a headache for England. The England team is currently in a state of over-reliance on captain Joe Root. The rest of the players got off to a good start and were seen throwing wickets. Another drawback is that they are not able to keep pace with the excellent Indian bowling line-up.
