India vs England 2024 3rd Test Match Prediction, Pitch Report, Playing 11, Fantasy Tips

India will take on England in the third Test of the 5-match series at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot, from Thursday (15 February) morning.


India returned strongly in the 2nd Test and won by 106 runs to draw the series at 1-1. Jaiswal (209) and Gill (104) scored the most, with no other batter crossing 50. But the real star was Jasrpit Bumrah, who took 9 wickets in the match.


On the other hand, England will see the 2nd Test as a missed opportunity to pile up the pressure on Team India. Zak Crawley led the batting attack for England, with fifties in both innings. James Anderson and Tom Hartley were also good with the ball in both innings. Ben Stokes will be playing his 100th Test.
