England v India: third Test, day one

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah

The tourists start Saturday's fixture here at Trent Bridge 2-0 down in a five-match series after a narrow loss at Edgbaston was followed by a thumping innings and 159-run defeat at Lord's last week.

As expected, India have come in for the do-or-die match with three changes. Yet, with India's selectors having picked the team for the first three Tests only, there is no reason to believe they won't look beyond, for the final two. For us, the priority is to win games of cricket. "I don't see any issues", he said.

Kohli struggled with a back problem at Lord's but has declared himself fit to play in Nottingham. I still feel that Karthik is at that stage of his career, it's now or never. "You have been in this position couple of times before and you have responded. I know how to handle it".

Meanwhile, Kohli said a recall for Jasprit Bumrah was possible, with the paceman having been sidelined since breaking his thumb during a T20 global against Ireland in Dublin on June 27.

India probable playing XI: Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah. "Very excited with Jasprit getting fit again". Shikhar Dhawan, who averages 20.12 in England, 27.83 in Australia and18 in South Africa, could find it freaky that he keeps getting picked for these overseas assignments when it's quite clear he's happiest at home, where he averages 44.37.

"He is very consistent in hitting the areas required at Test level".

After the game, Eagles Coach Doug Pederson said he would wait for a medial evaluation before offering more details on the injury. Patriots: First-round draft choice Isaiah Wynn was taken away from the medical tent on a cart with a left ankle injury.

The build-up has been dominated by Ben Stokes, who missed the second Test as he was standing trial for affray.

Which leaves Sam Curran in the firing line despite the variety his left-arm swing bowling brings to an otherwise all right-arm attack and the fact the 20-year-old is averaging 36 with the bat and 23 with the ball in a first season of Test cricket that includes a man-of-the-match display at Edgbaston.

Dropping Buttler, if England opt against fielding an unchanged team, might seem fairer but could leave Root with one paceman too many and one batsman too few.

"Ben is desperate to get back playing cricket".

"He felt he was ready to play".

Woakes is retained after his magnificent effort as is batsman Ollie Pope who made a decent debut with his 28 at Lord's.
