After lagging 0-2 behind in the five-match test series, Team India will eye a win in the third test that begins today at Nottingham.

Indian batters will have to perform well if there is any chance for them to make a comeback in the ongoing series. Indian batsmen apart from Kohli have so far disappointed in the ongoing series.

Note: India lost the second Test by an innings and 56 runs. They were all-out in both the innings in just 82.2 overs [Less than a day of Test cricket (90 overs)].

The bowling has been good but they need to ensure they also wrap up the lower middle order and tail-enders quickly without allowing any partnership to grow. Ishant Sharma will be eyeing his 250th wicket in the longer format of the game.

Slip catching also has been a concern for team India but bounce play a role in England conditions.

Youngster Risabh Pant is likely to make his debut in the third test after Dinesh Karthik failed to perform with the bat.

From the England counterpart, the hosts will be looking to seal the series with an unassailable 3-0 lead in the third test.

Ben Stokes will play the third test after he was cleared of affray charges a few days ago. Unfortunately, 20-year-old Sam Curran miss out who played a key role in helping his side register 31 runs victory in the first test.
