India vs England 3rd Test Live Streaming - A tough one for India

India vs England 2012 live streaming online begins for 3rd test match to be played at the Eden Gardens in the city of Kolkata. The title itself says that this is going to be a tough test match for India. Confidence has gone down after a defeat in the 2nd test at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and this is a real high time for India to pull up their socks and clinch a win. A loss here would give England an unbeatable lead in the series and break India dreams of winning this test series. So India has to perform really well to register another win in this test series after the first one at Ahmedabad.

Indian team's decision to create a turning track in Mumbai backfired them as Swann and Panesar unsettled almost all the Indian batsmen and sent them to the pavilion pretty cheaply. Indian spin trio couldn't impress to that level and hence Indian strategy backfired. It was a two way loss. Indian spinners didn't perform as good as England spinners and Indian batsmen couldn't tackle England spinners as good as the England batsmen tackled Harbhajan, Ashwin and Ojha. So it was a performance deficiency from both bowling and batting perspective.

Sachin Tendulkar's form has been a great worry for Indian fans and the team too. After his counterpart Ricky Ponting announced his retirement after Perth test, speculations are high that Sachin should also seriously thing in that direction. At the same time the fans also wish to see him play more but no on the expense of poor form that affects the overall team's achievements.

Yuvraj Singh after a good innings at Ahmedabad hasn't impressed. Gambhir who was out of form played better cricket at Mumbai in the second innings. Inconsistent Sehwag and Kohli caused worry for India and the captain Dhoni is facing a lean patch. All the star batsmen from India seem to be out of form apart from sparkling Cheteshwar Pujara.

England's confidence would be on cloud nine and they will come up hard on India at Kolkata. Cook is in exceptional form and so does Pieterson look like after his ton at Mumbai. A good knocks from Compton, Prior, Bell, etc can increase worries in the Indian camp. 

England spinners Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann are in exceptionally good form on Indian spinning tracks and proving to be more fatal than the home spinners. Stuart Broad is out of form and Steve Finn's good recovery from the injury indicates that Broad might be rested to give way to Finn in the third test.

Overall this test match is going to be the most interesting one in this test match as both the teams are level at 1-1. A win here for either of the teams will place them in a probable series winning situation. Let us hope for one of the best cricket matches we have ever witnessed! All the best to both the teams.
