Team India bounced back strongly to keep the five-match Test series against England alive after registering a 203-run victory to bring the scoreline down to 1-2. It was a much-needed win for the visiting team especially after the narrow defeat in Edgbaston and the hiding at Lord’s.
Not many would have predicted them to win the third Test in Nottingham. However, India made a strong comeback and outplayed England in all three departments of the game.
The victory was built mainly around two five-wicket hauls by Hardik Pandya in the first innings and Jasprit Bumrah in the second one. Captain Virat Kohli continued his dream run in the English conditions and went on to smash his 23rd Test ton in the 2nd innings.
Virat Kohli missed out the elusive mark in the first innings by just three runs. Ajinkya Rahane well supported him in the 1st innings and Cheteshwar Pujara in the 2nd innings. However, India has made changes in all of their last 38 Tests. Even in the 3rd Test, Murali Vijay made way for Shikhar Dhawan. Also, in the pace department, Jasprit Bumrah replaced Kuldeep Yadav.
Now here are two possible Indian changes which might happen in the 4th Test at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, starting August 30th.
