CRIMSON TAZVINZWA, AIWA! NO!|England suffered a top order collapse before reaching 4-110, an overall lead of 206 runs, at lunch on day three of the third and final Test against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

India will be hungry to keep themselves alive in the five-match Test series against hosts England when they square-off in the third Test at the Trent Bridge. After losing the first two matches, India face a must-win situation. India gave a very good fight before losing the first Test by 31 runs in Birmingham.
In the second Test, they were outplayed by an innings and 159 runs at Lord’s, succumbing within three days. The Indian team management’s major responsibility on Saturday would be to find a perfect team combination as players are going through fitness and out of form issues.
On a night of almost unbearable tension, Mario Mandzukic’s well-taken goal in the second half of extra-time was enough to end all the unlikely English dreams and secure Croatia a World Cup final with France.
