England vs India 2021, 3rd Test Day 3 – Headingley Weather Report


In the opening two days of the Test, England has stamped its dominance, and India would need a spectacular batting effort in their third innings to have a chance. After the first four hours of the Test, there has been no movement in the air or off the ground, so Virat Kohli’s decision at the toss remains a mystery.

In terms of the weather, cloud cover is expected to persist throughout the Test, with cloudy conditions coming into play. On the third day, there is a very slim risk of rain, which may occur during the morning session, but the remainder of the day appears to be clear. The humidity level is 50%, and there may be a few scattered showers on the way.

England put in yet another strong showing in the Leeds tests, and they are in a position where they cannot afford to lose the match with three days remaining. The Indian bowlers lacked penetration and bowled a lot of short deliveries, which the English batters readily handled.

So far, England has amassed a 345-run advantage, which appears to be a difficult target for India to reach in the second innings. Dawid Malan’s 70 on his comeback to Test cricket will undoubtedly improve his confidence, and it will be intriguing to see if he can maintain his form in the following tests. However, England’s standout batter was once again skipper Jos Buttler.

In the continuing series against England, Joe Root has been in superb form, scoring another century in the Headingley test to bring his total to 23, equaling Alastair Cook’s record of most international hundreds for England. He concluded with 121 runs off 165 deliveries for a strike rate of 73.33, and he kept the strike spinning along with the 14 boundaries.’

England has two wickets in hand and will be aiming for a lead of about 400 runs to make it nearly impossible for India to win or tie.
