The third match of the 5-match Test series between India and England will be played from February 15 at Rajkot ground. While England won the first match of this series, Team India made a spectacular comeback in the second match and leveled the series at 1-1. Now the third match of the series is considered very important for both the teams. Just a day before the start of this match, a major change has been made in the name of Saurashtra Cricket Stadium, in which it will now be known as Niranjan Shah Stadium.

The first international match was played on this ground in the year 2013.

In the last few years, the names of many stadiums in India have been changed, in which now Saurashtra Cricket Stadium is also included. The first international match was played on this ground in the year 2013. Since then, a total of 11 matches have been played here in all formats. Niranjan Shah, who has also been the former Secretary of BCCI, has also played a very important role in building this stadium. Niranjan Shah played 12 first-class matches for Saurashtra between 1960 and 1970. Till now, only 2 Test matches have been played on this ground, in which the match between India and England ended in a draw, while in the second match, India defeated West Indies comprehensively.

Batsmen dominate in Rajkot stadium

If we talk about this stadium, till now the dominance of batsmen has been seen here, in which due to the small boundary, fours and sixes have been seen being hit with great ease. Something similar is seen in Test matches too, although in the last two days of the game, there is a lot of help for the spinners on the pitch.
