Lord's Final On Line As India, England Return To Motera Stadium
India and England return to the scene of last week's hotly debated two-day Test on Thursday with the hosts looking to secure a place in the World Test Championship final.
The first Test held at the Narendra Modi Stadium, the world's biggest cricket venue, turned out to be one of the shortest in history as England were thrashed inside two days.
The result, which left India 2-1 up in the four-Test series and ruled England out of the world championship final, prompted accusations that the uber spin-friendly pitch was not up to standard.
England skipper Joe Root returned the extraordinary figures of five wickets for eight runs with his part-time off-spin, in a day-night game that lasted just 842 balls -- the shortest Test since 1935.
