England vs India, Test 3

Virat Kohli became the third Indian captain after Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni to lead the Indian team to an epic test triumph at the iconic Lord's Cricket Ground against England. This win saw India lead the series 1-0 after the two matches played out of the five. The Indian performance showed bright phases of team play as every player contributed their part. England never had a clue of how to manage the Indian team since the second session on day 4. 

The tipster match prediction tips predicted this match to be a cracker and so it was proved. KL Rahul was adjudged the player of the match for his brilliant 129 run knock in the first innings. The bowlers delivered efficiently across both innings as Mohammad Siraj claimed a total of 8 wickets in the match. For the first time, Joe Root's excellent 180 run knock went in vain and so did James Anderson's first innings fifer. Surprisingly, England was knocked out for just 120 runs in the second innings, which brought India the victory. Mohammad Shami's second innings fifty too played a crucial role in India's dominance over England on the last day of the second test.

Toss Prediction

Given the pitch conditions and the home advantage England is carrying, they are the favourites to win the toss as suggested by tipster prediction for today's match toss. Virat Kohli's luck never favours him and hence India is likely to lose the toss yet again.

Weather Report

The weather at the Headingley Carnegie Cricket Ground would not be a suitable one for a game of cricket. It is cloudy and overcast with an over 80% chance of rain that can hamper game time. The temperatures have dropped and range between 11°C to 15°C. Though humidity would persist, cold gusts of wind would be blowing at speeds around 14 kmph aiding the swing of the ball.

Pitch Report

Headingley's pitch is mainly for the batsmen, but overcast weather conditions aid swing bowling exceptionally. The first two days are designated for the batsman due to the flat pitch and the bowlers run the show on the final two days. Spinners too would be benefited after the pitch settles down.

Overall Match Prediction

The tipster prediction for today's match predicts yet another good and exciting game of cricket in the third test if the weather does not have negative plans. Both these teams look in mighty form, ready to gobble up every chance they get to rise high up the World Test Championship table. Both the teams have already suffered point deduction due to the slow over-rate. Meanwhile, India moved higher up in the table with the win in the second match. Tipster match prediction tips count England as the winners of the Headingley test since they would have a different level of adrenaline to bounce back on home soil. 

The only tension remains regarding the weather as Headingley is a sweet spot for drawn tests due to rain in cricketing summer. The experts do not rule out the possibility of India winning the game too, as they look a brute force this summer and eye revenge and redemption counting on all the past series defeats against England, in England. Following Cricbro free match tips can help you get hold of the game.
