India vs England 3rd Rajkot Test Match : All eyes are going to be on Rajkot for the coming few days, because the third Test match between India and England is to be played here. The competition will start from February 15, preparations for this are now in the final stages. Whether we talk about Indian players or England players, players of both the teams have scored a lot of runs here. It is another matter that the two players who have scored the most runs for India are not playing this time.
Two test matches have been played in Rajkot so far
So far only two Test matches have been held at the Rajkot Stadium of Saurashtra Cricket Association. India has faced England once and West Indies the second time. Now the teams of India and England are going to come face to face. The match against England ended in a draw, whereas against West Indies, Team India won the match by an innings and 272 runs. That means this ground has been good for the Indian team.
Kohli and Pujara have scored the most runs here
Cheteshwar Pujara has scored the most runs for India in Test matches at Rosekot. He has scored 228 runs by playing 2 matches. Whereas Virat Kohli is at number two. He has scored 228 runs in two matches here. That means Kohli and Pujara have equal runs. Pujara is the only batsman who has scored both a century and a half-century here. But this time when Team India will come here to play on 15th, both these players will not be seen.
Jadeja and Vijay have also scored centuries
The most runs for England here have been scored by their current captain Ben Stokes. Stokes has scored 157 runs in two innings of a match. He has a century to his name here. India’s Murali Vijay has also scored 157 runs in a match. Ravindra Jadeja has also scored 144 runs in Rajkot, he also has a century in his name. But right now it cannot be said with certainty whether Jadeja will be fully fit and in a position to play in the next match or not.
Ben Stokes and Joe Root have also scored a lot of runs
Apart from Ben Stokes, other England batsmen who have scored centuries here also include the names of Alastair Cook, Moeen Ali and Joe Root. Not Cook and Ali, but Joe Root will definitely be seen playing in this test. The series is currently tied, which means whichever team wins this match will get the lead, in this respect this match is going to be very important. At this time, the teams are busy in their preparation as well as in making strategies, in such a situation it has to be seen which team will perform better and win here.
