With the hosts bouncing back in Chennai to level the series, the Men In Blue will look to turn the screw as the action moves to Ahmedabad. Watch every ball of the 3rd Test with our India vs England live stream guide below.

Marking its first major event since a major refurbishment, this day/night match will be played within the grand setting of the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad, commonly known as the Motera Stadium and now claimed to be the world's largest cricket ground thanks to its new seated capacity of 110,000.

While COVID-19 restrictions mean the stadium will only be able to accommodate half that number, the roar of the home crowd is sure to be a big factor in proceedings here.

With India winning the 2nd Test somewhat comprehensively, England look set to ring the changes with Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Zak Crawley, and Jimmy Anderson all in contention for returning to the team, with Olly Stone, Rory Burns, and Dan Lawrence looking set to make way.

Despite their dominant display last time out, India could also reshuffle their line up with Umesh Yadav tipped for a recall alongside fellow fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

With blistering heat of 35-36c expected throughout the Test, winning the toss looks vital here with both sides hoping to make their opponents toil in the field.

Willow TV is usually a godsend for cricket fans in the U.S., but for once that's not the case, as it doesn't have the rights for this series.
