ENG vs IND Match Prediction Tips | Who Will Win Today Match

Trent Bridge, Nottingham August 18 at 3:30 PM IST

It took just 3 days to tame the number one Test side in a humiliating manner and England did it in style. The pundits of the game had their say and none of them had nothing favourable to say for the number one side.

But let us move forward now and focus on the next match which is going to be played in Trent Bridge at Nottingham on August 18. This would be the third match of the series and an eventual do or die one for the visitors.

England, on the other hand, would be eyeing a series win in this match itself and then would look to inflict even more pain by decimating the visitors in a subdued manner in the next two matches and secure a clean sweep.

Meanwhile, India might look to tinkle with their eleven for the third time in this series and look to bring in the talismanic free-flow wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant into their ranks in place of the already struggling Dinesh Karthik and resound themselves with a new talent.

The team management has to take the last call with the playing eleven and it would be interesting to see what composition the two teams will come in the next match with England’s prolific all-rounder also making his way back into the squad after his court case.

Last Test result at the venue: England 205 and 133 lost to South Africa 335 & 343/9d – 2nd Test, South Africa tour of England, July 14-17 2017

ENG vs IND Key Players


  • Once again the impetus of scoring big runs would be on Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow who are among runs.
  • Chris Woakes was a surprise element in the last Test as he scored his maiden ton which makes him a lethal weapon with both bat and ball.
  • Stuart Broad has taken a 4-fer in the last Test and his partner in crime James Anderson claimed a 5-fer in the same match. These two once again will give headaches to the Indian batting line-up.



  • Skipper Virat Kohli has been the lone warrior vs England as he has got 240 runs from 4 innings so far and would be once again pipped for a good show.
  • Ishant Sharma who has got 7 wickets from 4 innings so far will lead the bowling attack.
