India vs England, 3rd test match of the ongoing 4 match test series will be played at Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad from 24 Feb onwards. Here is the list of 3 key things we need to know for the Ahmedabad Test.
1: Pink ball test:
This is going to be a pink ball day-night test match. The pink ball has relatively more lacquer than the red ball which produces more swing. No wonder Mark Wood is back in the England squad! It will be important to see whether both the teams will strengthen-up their pace batteries or would go for the spin options.
2: Largest stadium:
The newly renovated stadium has a stunning spectator capacity of 1,10,000 and is considered to be the biggest cricket stadium in the world. It is also known as the Motera cricket stadium. It was originally built in the year 1983 with a crowd capacity of 49,000. The crowd is also allowed to watch the match.
3: Turning track:
India will try to produce another turning track in Ahmedabad. Having a superior spin bowling attack will give them a slight edge over England.
