England’s Ultimate XI Unveiled for 3rd Test at Rajkot

England announced their playing 11 for the Rajkot Test. There is only one change in the eleven, which is Mark Wood coming in place of Shoaib Bashir. 

The series is 1-1 in the 5 match series. First match was won by the English team by 28 runs while the second match was won by India by 106 runs. Now the 3rd match will start at Rajkot on 15th February. 

Just a few days back English wrist spinner Rehan Ahmed faced some visa issue but the Indian government allowed him by providing a temporary visa and as a result he will be available for the upcoming match. 

Wood played the first match in Hyderabad but was not available for the second match as the pitch offered spin more than the pace. But now he will give company to James Anderson who is currently close to touch the 700 wickets milestone in the Tests.
