ENG vs IND: India tour of England: Preview
Virat Kohli-led side showcased a fine display of teamwork as they thumped the home side by 151 runs at Lord’s in the second test. With the momentum on their side, India looks strong against England who would be itching to bounce back and level the series after losing the match in just the final two sessions of Day 5.
India’s top order was jolted early in their second innings, and that was when two of their under-fire batters joined hands to save the innings. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane blocked and defended their way to a 100-run partnership in 49.3 overs, after which both of them perished. The match was full of sledging and banter, with both teams having a go at some point.

ENG vs IND: 3rd Test: Match Prediction
India is high on confidence and morale after the win and their biggest worry is the middle order batting and with all 3 players scoring 40+ runs in the last match might be a sample for bigger things to come. England`s batting is in a mess with joe Root being the only consistent performer for a long time. India`s pace attack easily outclasses English attack as all bowlers are contributing with crucial wickets and have 5-10 kmph pace higher than most English counterparts. Spinners won`t have a big role in this match too. We expect Indian team to win this match and go 2-0 in the series.
