India would like to take an unassailable 2-0 lead by winning the third Test in Leeds.
England is scared of beating Team India
Before the third Test, England captain Joe Root surprised everyone by making a strange statement. According to Joe Root, England will avoid messing with the Indian team in the third test match. In the second Test match played at Lord’s, the players of India and England were not shying away from sparring continuously.
Expect more aggression from Kohli’s team
India are now 1-0 up in the series and expect more aggression from Virat Kohli’s side after tasting victory, but Root said his team has learned a lesson from the previous encounter and unnecessarily indulged in any debate. Won’t happen.
Root surprised by this statement before the third test
Root said, ‘During the game, the situation had become like a theater. We have to make sure we play the way we want to play and we control that as much as we can. We want to avoid getting too distracted or attracted to things that don’t have honesty.
Virat’s team will play as they play
Root said, ‘We have to be honest with ourselves, we have to pay attention to how we are behaving as an individual and collectively. It should be as good as it can be. Virat’s team will play the way they play, I just want us to present ourselves in the best possible way when we go on the field.
There’s a lot at stake in the series
The England captain said, ‘We have learned a good lesson from the last match and I think in some cases we could have done better. As a captain, I could have done some things differently. “We have three big matches to play in this series, there’s a lot at stake in the series and you know we’re looking forward to coming back strongly,” Root said.
England made some changes in the team
England have made some changes in the team, with David Malan batting at number three while Haseeb Hameed will open the innings with Rory Burns. Opener Dom Sibley has been ruled out and Mark Wood will miss the third Test due to a shoulder injury. Root hopes that Malan will be able to make an impact. However, he does not have much experience in Test matches. “David Malan certainly provides a lot of experience in the top three, not necessarily just in Test cricket, but he has played a lot of international cricket, he knows how to deal with pressure situations,” Root said.
