Vengsarkar calls for Pant`s inclusion in 3rd Test

India vs England 3rd Test When And Where To Watch Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

After the hosts won the toss and elected to bowl at Trent Bridge, the openers got off to a fifty-run stand before Chris Woakes struck in style. England had managed to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane (81) and Virat Kohli (91) to claw their way back in the game.

This was the sort of day India had been waiting for all August. However, Rishabh Pant could make a debut today considering the fact that KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Shikhar Dhawan have disappointed the skipper.

Dhawan and Rahul laid the foundation. Rahane and Kohli cashed in. Hardik saw off the crucial phase by consuming deliveries while Pant kept the scoreboard ticking.

Not just Pandya, barring Virat Kohli, the entire batting line-up has failed to get going.

But to pull that off India will need to do a lot of things right.

However, Virat Kohli, who is leading India for the first time in England in a Test series, will be out to avoid the ignominy as the third Test against Joe Root-led England kicks off here at the Trent Bridge on Saturday. For India, here was a glimpse of what this tour to England was meant to be like. The latter scored just 20 and 6 runs respectively in the Edgbaston Test followed by two ducks at the Lord's.

The Indian team management's major responsibility on Saturday morning would be to find a flawless team combination as players are going through fitness and out of form issues.

The Timberwolves' draft mishap in 2009 may have stemmed from Minnesota's cold weather and Stephen Curry's love of golf . The stunning story will be sure to devastate the Timberwolves fans, even though it was over nine years ago now.

Coming to the 3rd Test, Kohli and Shastri will aim to get team combination right with the most awaited change likely to be the inclusion of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might replace Dinesh Karthik, who is in bad form. As per the media reports, captain Kohli has also recovered from his back problem and is expected to lead the team in his signature aggressive manner will try to win the Trent test.

However, with Umesh Yadav, who was dropped at Lord's Test for Kuldeep, the skipper would have to make a choice between him and Bumrah.

India, on the other hand, will be hoping that Jasprit Bumrah is fit to play and the other bowlers - Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and R Ashwin, with Hardik Pandya, who is likely to get another go as an all-rounder, showing improvement to contribute handsomely with the ball. "As a team, we've just got to make sure we have five days of good solid cricket".

At 33, Karthik is the epitome of the journeyman Indian cricketer, and played because Wriddhiman Saha is injured. "There's always pressure to perform whenever you put the England shirt on - always people knocking on the door".

Chris Woakes picked up all three wickets in the first session of play. Based on these performances, Woakes has been given another opportunity. It's getting more and more hard for England to break this partnership.

The last time these two sides clashed here was back in 2014 when India scored 457 and 391/9 on a batting friendly surface, while England, who batted once, scored 496 as the match ended in a draw.
