IND vs ENG: The third match of the five-match Test series is being played between India and England. In this match both the teams seem to be in similar position. Fans are going to see a very competitive match. After the end of the second day of the match, the England team looked to be in a very strong position, but on the third day of the match, the Indian bowlers made Team India come back into the contest and now the match has become very exciting.

Team India took three wickets in the beginning on the third day of the test match. On the other hand, the bowlers will have to perform their responsibilities very well so that Team India does not miss R Ashwin who is out in the middle of this match. Let us tell you that in this match, the players of Team India have a black stripe.

Why did the players wear black bands?

Indian players wore black armbands in memory of India’s oldest Test cricketer Dattajirao Gaekwad, who died on Tuesday February 13 in Baroda, Gujarat. Captain and India’s oldest Test cricketer who passed away recently. BCCI has given this information to the fans through a statement on X. Dutta Gaikwad, who debuted for India in 1952, breathed his last at the age of 95 and the Indian cricket fraternity paid tribute to the legend. India will hope to pay a fitting tribute to the late cricketer with a stellar performance on the third day.

How was the match so far?

Talking about the current match, India scored 445 runs in its first innings and England made a strong start to their innings by batting brilliantly, which put the Indian fans in tension. However, the return on the third day has put the hosts in a good position and they will have to account for the absence of R Ashwin for the rest of the match, not only with the ball but also with the bat. Actually, R Ashwin was with Team India for the first two days of this match, but due to personal reasons he had to leave after the end of the second day’s play. In such a situation, Team India’s bowling already looks weak.
