The rain-hit Test match between India and England being played at Trent Bridge has reached an interesting turn. Three days' play is over and Team India has a lead of 70 runs. Veteran commentator Sushil Doshi believes that the England team will be under deep pressure at this time and India's chances of victory will be strengthened if wickets fall early on the fourth day. Doshi has also made interesting comments about the game of Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. You can listen to his full analysis of the third day's game in this podcast.

Jadeja's game shines in difficulties

Doshi said that when the Indian playing 11 for this match was announced, many people were surprised. He said that it is not a good decision to include Ravindra Jadeja by excluding world-class off-spinner like Ravichandran Ashwin, but the way Jadeja batted, he proved captain Virat Kohli's decision right. Jadeja's game comes to the fore when the team is in trouble. The same happened this time as well.

The lead of 95 runs will prove to be very valuable

India took a lead of 95 runs on the basis of the first innings. England scored 25 runs in the second innings without losing a wicket. Still, Team India is ahead by 70 runs. Doshi said- I believe a 70-run lead on this pitch will also be very important. The Indian team took the lead of more than this. If on the fourth day of the game the Indian bowlers are able to take two or three wickets early for England, then the British will be under a lot of pressure. At the same time, if the England team is successful in batting for the whole day, then the match will reach a very interesting position on the fifth day.

Rain is spoiling the fun

Doshi said that due to frequent rain interruptions, the fun of the match is getting spoiled. However, he believes that there is still enough time left for a clear result. The Indian bowlers and the England batsmen, who had the upper hand on the fourth day, can turn the match on their side.
