India vs Australia 3rd Test Live Streaming ESPN Star Cricket HD

India has achieved an unassailable lead of 2-0 in this test series against Australia and all they are looking forward in 3rd test is a series win lead of 3-0. Meanwhile the wounded Australian side will take on India at PCA Stadium in Mohali with an attempt to make it 2-1.

We have seen some changes in either of the sides which have created a lot of debate in the cricketing world. Sehwag has been dropped from the side following his out of form performances. Someone like Dravid had stated before this decision that if he isn't to be considered for tour to South Africa, he should ideally sit out due to his bad form. On the other hand someone like Laxman or Ganguly thought that he should have been given more chances as he is a good prospect for test matches in South Africa.

Sehwag's absence provides a good opportunity to players like Dhawan and Rahane. Either of these two will get an opportunity to open the innings for India at Mohali along with Murali Vijay. Rest of the batting line up looks well set with in form Pujara, Sachin, Kohli, Dhoni and a good effective tail to follow which includes Jadeja, Ashwin, etc.

Australian management decided to drop four major players including vice-captain Watson, Johnson, Pattinson and Khawaja. One of the reasons to drop them was they failed to present their way forward for the rest of the two matches which could also set a bad example for the other team members. There has been mixed feedbacks received with regards to these exclusions.

Indian bowling has been superb so far. Apart from Ishant who bowled well in patches, all the other bowlers including Ashwin, Jadeja, Harbhajan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have bowled well. Ashwin is leading the bowling attack right from the front and making optimum use of bounce offered by Indian pitches to the spinners.

We can expect another turning wicket at Mohali which generally assists the fast bowlers a bit at the start. Even considering the recent results here, team batting second have fared well. So this time things may go the other way round and captain winning the toss may elect to bowl first. Let us see what rests within the upcoming test match which hopefully would turn out to be a great game of cricket.
