India eyeing 2-1 but can the pink ball 'swing' momentum in England's favour?

Feb 23, 2021 14:05 IST

India would look to take their newly-found momentum into the 3rd Test but outplaying England with the pink ball won't be easy. England's James Anderson would be licking his lips to bowl during the twilight period.

The highest Test wicket-taker amongst pacers, Anderson, became the first Englishman to take a wicket with the pink ball and also has a 5-wicket-haul in the day-night Test under his belt. But England's away record with the pink ball isn't great as they have never tasted victory in a day-night Test outside home.

Hosts India on the other hand outplayed Bangladesh in their only pink ball Test on home soil with Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav picking a 5-fer each.

The pitch at the newly renovated Motera Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad though is expected to favour the spinners and with the 4-match series locked at 1-1, India would be eager to capitalise on the home advantage and further strengthen their chances of punching their ticket to the World Test Championship final.
