INDIA vs ENGLAND 3rd Test LIVE SCORE: Unlike usual Tests, all eyes will be on Motera Stadium instead of India and England as the teams gear up for the pink ball Test on Wednesday.
There are 11 centre pitches on the square, which has not seen international cricket since 2014, and ground staff have readied a red-soil pitch for the Day-Night Test. It means we can expect a sharp turn and bounce.

11.50PM: Team India’s conundrum to pick Playing XI- Check why?
Virat Kohli and Indian team management will be in a conundrum picking the playing XI. With the 22-yards expected to dry out in the heat, India would be tempted to go for Kuldeep Yadav, who has a boasting record with the pink ball in first-class cricket.
But Umesh Yadav, who is returning to the squad, comes in with his unique skills on skiddy Indian pitches. Jasprit Bumrah was rested from the second Test but it will take a last-minute injury to keep him out of this one.
As for England, Joe Root during the pre-match conference kept his cards close to his chest but five changes can be expected. Dan Lawrence could be benched, with Jonny Bairstow likely to come in at number three. Zak Crawley’s return to fitness could put Rory Burns’ position at risk. There could be a raft of changes in the bowling attack too. James Anderson and Jofra Archer are set to return while Chris Woakes or Dom Bess could play as well, depending on whether England opt to play two spinners.
