Indian players who might be axed for the 3rd Test

Indian players who might be axed for the 3rd Test

India's batsmen have had a rough time in the series so far, with none of the top six - with the exception of Virat Kohli - scoring more than 30 in the first two Tests. After disappointing loses in the first two encounters Virat Kohli and Co have their backs to the wall and anything less than a victory will signal the end of the road. India have everything to play for, and they will do so knowing that a loss at Nottingham will wipe away all their hopes of a series win, something the team had said it would target, ahead of the series.

"Kohli... he is feeling much better". "But that's where character comes into play and discipline comes into play, the resolve to know where your off stump is, leave a lot of balls, be prepared to look ugly and dirty and show some grit".

Out of favour Team India opener, Gautam Gambhir feels that India still has a chance of winning or levelling the five-match Test series against England.

In January, after India had lost the first two of their three Tests in South Africa, coach Ravi Shastri said: "Conditions back home, we are familiar with". You have been in this position couple of times before and you have responded.

"He is one of our pillars, he will remain one of our pillars", Shastri said.

India captain Virat Kohli is "excited" to have Jasprit Bumrah available for selection for the third Test against England in Trent Bridge.

Talking about what the batsmen need to do in conditions that suit the bowlers, Kohli said, "When you play here in conditions, you have to accept that even if you are batting on 100, you are not set". Whether he plays or not, we've got some guys in form in the team. One thing for sure in this unit, there is no negative bone. "But in hindsight, the way things panned out, the amount it rained, the amount of time we lost, a seamer could have been a better option". They lost 2-1. Then for England, they tried to stitch together a disjointed training system which included white-ball worldwide matches, by having Cheteshwar Pujara and Ishant Sharma play county cricket and some other members with the "A" team in England. "We're here, without a negative bone, wanting to play to win". But the captain admitted after the Lord's Test that choosing Kuldeep Yadav in place of Umesh Yadav was a mistake. Seeing the conditions, we could have gone with an extra seamer.

With the trio of KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay struggling, Rohit was posed a question if he would like to open the innings in Test matches too. "We are not thinking whether someone's career is on the line or what's going to happen to their future", Kohli said.
