“Hello and welcome to the Headingley Stadium, Leeds. Our venue for the 3rd Test against England,” the BCCI tweeted.
The cricket universe hailed India’s Test win at Lord’s. It was a complete team effort as various individuals stood up at different times to help India win the game.
The two teams fought intensely for the five days of the Test match and in the end it was Team India who emerged victorious. KL Rahul and Kohli looked back at the Indian win and spoke about the events that happened in the process.
“Look, personally, it shows how badly both teams want to win. When both teams go at each other, it shows how badly both teams want to win and that is how Test cricket is played. We as a team are never shy to say a word or two, if someone goes at one of our players and the rest of 10 guys get pumped, that is the kind of team we are,” said Rahul during a virtual press conference.
England, on the other hand, have announced their squad for the third Test. The team reached the venue on Sunday. The likes of Dawid Malan and Saqib Mahmood have been added into the squad. Rory Burns hed his place while Zak Crawley and Dom Sibley were benched.
