The third match of the four-match Test series between India and England will be played at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad from 24 February. This match will be played day-night.
This will be the second day-night Test match in India. Earlier, Team India played a day-night match with Bangladesh in Kolkata in November 2019. The match was played on a grassy pitch. The Indian team was successful in winning it on the third day. The spinners took 19 wickets in that match.
However, now the Indian team captained by Virat Kohli will not want a grassy pitch against England at Motera Stadium. Team India may want the kind of pitch that was in the two day-night Test matches in Dubai. In both these matches, the spin bowlers had done well. The spin bowlers took 46 wickets in their two matches. Pakistan played both these matches against West Indies and Sri Lanka respectively.
