IND vs ENG 3rd Test: India elects to bat, field an unchanged playing 11


India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against England in the third cricket Test, at The Headingley, Leeds on Wednesday. India, as Kohli had said, have gone into the game with an unchanged playing eleven that won the second match at the Lord's.

Kohli said Ravindra Jadeja will bowl a lot more in this game, looking at the dry nature of the surface.

For England, Dawid Malan is back in the Test XI in place of Dom Sibley along with pacer Craig Overton, who replaced an injured Mark Wood.

Earlier, the first Test ended in a draw but India staged an incredible comeback to take the second game by 151 runs at the Lord's Cricket Ground. Riding on the confidence, the visitors will look to seal the series by winning the third Test, which will ensure that India doesn't lose the five-match series.

India playing 11: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj.

England playing 11: Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Joe Root(c), Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Craig Overton, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson
