India vs England third Test: Tips and suggested bets

India and England lock horns for the third Test in Rajkot, with the scores level in the series where should your money go for this pivotal match?

India are out to break the back of the English resistance with the emphatic performance that has so far been lacking from the hosts. Especially as many were expecting the to steamroll the Bazball enthusiasts.

For England, things are a little simpler at least when it comes to what their fans expect them to achieve in India.

Of course, the World Test Championship will serve as motivation to treat each match with equal importance given that each one carries the same points.

England return to the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, a ground they helped inaugurate into Test cricket and a venue that they earned a draw on against India last time out.

The Rajkot pitch is known to play a little bit flat at first and that might present England with an opening to attack the India bowling to put the hosts under some pressure.

India have not lost at the SCA Stadium in Test cricket but they have only played two matches at the venue, playing to a stalemate against England and securing a big win over the West Indies in 2018.

In the last Ranji Trophy match at the SCA Stadium, Cheteshwar Pujara struck a double hundred and the match ended in a draw.

There was a little something in the wicket for seamers on day one but it would be a great surprise if the groundsman was allowed to roll out a pitch like that one for a visiting England team.
