IND vs ENG Top Picks to consider for Dream11 Prediction And Fantasy Cricket Tips:
Joe Root, the skipper of the England team, has been in great form in the Test format recently. Last month, he scored a double century along with an incredible knock of 189 against Sri Lanka to seal the series for his side. He also scored a double century and a 40 in the first Test in Chennai. However, he didn’t score well in the second test and will look to bounce back in this one.
Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper-batsman from India, has been in red hot form since the Australia tour. He scored a fiery knock of 91 off 88 in the first Test followed by a 58 in the second Test. He will be a mandatory pick for the team as he can change the game for his side with his attacking abilities.
Ravichandran Ashwin scored a magnificent knock of 106 off 148 balls in the second innings and also took 8 wickets in total in the second Test at Chennai. He also took 9 wickets in the first Test. He is an excellent all-rounder and becomes a must-have in Indian conditions.
Virat Kohli, the skipper of the Indian team, is known for his class batting across all formats of cricket but is presently struggling to score his 71st ton since 2019. He scored a decent knock of 78 in the first Test and then a 62 in the second Test. He is hungry for runs and a big show is round the corner.

IND vs ENG 3rd Test Match Expert Advice:
Since it is a pink-ball Test and the pitch is a grassy one, England have an upper hand considering the ball-swinging abilities of Anderson and Chris Woakes. Joe Root and Ravichandran Ashwin are the safe captaincy choices for this match considering their recent form. Cheteshwar Pujara can be tried as a risky captain for the grand leagues.
Johnny Bairstow can be tried as another captaincy option for the grand leagues as India might pitch in 3 spinners and he plays spin pretty well. Kuldeep Yadav and Chris Woakes are the punt-picks here. The best-suggested combination for this match is 2–3–3–3.
