Shardul Thakur regains fitness ahead of the Leeds Test and available for selection.
Team India is currently touring England for a five-match Test series. Both India and England are playing their first series of the second edition of World Test Championship (WTC). In the first edition of WTC, India lost to New Zealand in the final while England finished fourth.
Two Test matches have been played in the ongoing five-match series. The first Test was played at Nottingham from August 4-8, 2021 which ended in a draw. The recently concluded second Test was played at the Lord’s Cricket Ground from August 12-16, 2021 which India won comprehensively by 151 runs and are leading the series 1-0.
India Start Favourites
India are favourites to take an unassailable lead in the series going into the third Test after defeating England in the second Test in London. The last away Test series won by India against in England was back in 2007 under the leadership of Rahul Dravid. The third Test is going to be played at the Headingley Cricket Ground, Leeds from August 25-29, 2021.
With India not to do many chop and changes and injury scares among players, they are favorite to register another win against their name.
