Virat Kohli and team management may ring in a couple of changes for the third Test against England as England completed a crushing innings and taken a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Ajinkya Rahane, who is India's Test vice-captain, took the role of the captain with Kohli missing the action due to a stiff back as he did not come to the field when the fourth day's play began during the second Test against England at Lord's.


Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah looks all set to make his comeback into the playing XI as the right-arm pacer is ‘match fit’to play in the third Test of the five match series against England.

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has fully recovered from the broken thumb and will be available for selection.

In the batting department, the young and flamboyant Rishabh Pant looked likely to get the nod in place of the misfiring Dinesh Karthik for the third Test.

Rishabh Pant is the fourth youngest triple-centurion in first-class history while he played for Delhi in Ranji Trophy.

India (Playing XI):

Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma

England (Playing XI):

Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Joe Root(c), Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow(w), Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
