India and England are getting set to lock horns in the third Test for the Anthony de Mello Trophy. The series is currently locked at 1-1, having held in Chennai. Meanwhile, the things have moved to Ahmedabad, while the third Test would be a day-night affair.
Things continue to get intense between India and England as they move the battle to Ahmedabad in the four-Test series for the Anthony de Mello Trophy. With the series currently locked at 1-1 from Chennai, the final two Tests would be played at the redeveloped Sardar Patel (Motera) Stadium.
The venue would be hosting its first international game in nine years, while the third Test would be a day-night affair, which would be India's third D/N Test and the second in India. The host would be looking to win this tie, as it eyes the final spot in the ICC World Test Championship.
Meanwhile, the Indians are leaving no stones unturned in terms of preparations for the game. Having not played at the venue in nine years, it might somewhat seem new to the players. However, it is not entirely unknown territory. Also, with the track expected to be another turner, India is likely to have the upper hand.
Following their arrival on Friday, the Indians have enjoyed their practice and training session at the venue, as the world's largest stadium gives the players a different feeling altogether. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took to its Twitter handle to share some pictures and videos of Team India's practice session.
