The test series between India and England was evenly poised after the completion of two tests. India lost the Hyderabad test but bounced back in the Visakhapatnam test. Now, the scores are even at 1-1. The third test will only start a week later in Rajkot and we could see some more changes to the Indian side.
India missed the services of Kl Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja who were out of the side with injuries for the second test. It is learned that either of them or both could be available for the third test. A decision will be taken very soon in this regard. Also, there are speculations that the hero of the Visakhapatnam test Jasprit Bumrah could be rested for the third test managing his workload. There is no official confirmation regarding that.
Also, there is still ambiguity regarding the unavailability of Virat Kohli. The senior player missed the first two tests owing to personal reasons and the close sources reveal that the absence might be extended to the third and the fourth tests as well.
