Virat Kohli India vs England 3rd Test: A five-Test series is being played between India and England. Team India won the second test match by 106 runs and leveled the series 1-1. Indian selectors had announced Team India for the first two matches of the series. The Indian squad is yet to be announced for the remaining three matches of the series. The third test match between India and England will be played on the grounds of Rajkot from 15 February. But now even before the third test, a big update has come out regarding the Indian players.

Will Kohli be out of the third test?

Indian team’s star batsman Virat Kohli had asked for a break from the first two Test matches against England due to personal reasons. According to the report of ESPNcricinfo, Kohli is certain to be out of the third and fourth test matches. There is also doubt over Kohli’s availability for the fifth Test. The selectors will consider this.

These two players can make a comeback

Indian team’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja suffered a hamstring injury in the first Test match. Whereas KL Rahul had thigh problem. For this reason both these players were out of the second test. Both Jadeja and Rahul players are currently in the National Cricket Academy. The final report of the NCA physio is still awaited. According to ESPNcricinfo, both these players are currently fit. There is still more than a week left for the third Test to start. For this reason, there is full hope that both the players will be available for selection till the fitness clearance is given. There is every hope that both these players can make a comeback in the third test.

Had a strong performance in the first test

Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul played brilliant innings in the first Test match against England. Both the players had scored excellent half-centuries. Rahul scored 86 and Jadeja scored 87 runs. But even after this, Team India had to face defeat by 28 runs in the first test match. Rahul’s return will strengthen the Indian team. He is an important link of Team India’s batting in the middle order. Whereas Jadeja bowls amazingly on Indian pitches. Apart from this, he is adept at batting at lower order.
