India vs England, 3rd Test Day 2 Highlights: IND beat ENG by 10 wickets to take 2-1 lead

Team India lock horns with England once again for day two of the third Test match at the newly inaugurated Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday (February 25).

The inauguratory test at the Motera, which is also the biggest cricket stadium in the world, is a day-night encounter. The stadium will also host the five T20s between India and England that will begin on March 12.

Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin bagged four wickets. When day two action resumes at Motera, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane will get things going for the home side, with India still trailing the visitors for 13 runs.
