India will take on England in the third Test of the five-match series at Mohali. After beating England in the second Test at Visakhapatnam, India will look to continue the same momentum, while the visiting side must be aiming a bounce back, which they have done twice in last two series. The first Test of the series at Rajkot had ended in draw before India, as mentioned above, went one-up at Vizag. Both the teams are expected to bring in several changes for the third Test. With Gautam Gambhir being left out, KL Rahul will probably get another chance, though Karun Nair has a chance. However, India will miss Wriddhiman Saha, who has been ruled out of the Mohali Test with an injury and will be replaced by Parthiv Patel. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 3rd Test at Mohali

For England, Jos Buttler is likely to replace a struggling Ben Duckett after the latter s poor run with bat. Besides that, pacer Stuart Broad has been ruled out because of injury and Chris Woakes will probably replace him. Zafar Ansari, suffering from illness and back spasms, has been ruled out as well. This may give Gareth Batty another chance, while England may also opt for the extra fast bowler in one of Jake Ball and Steven Finn. On the other hand, though Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back, it is unlikely that he will be picked unless India decide to go in with three seamers. Meanwhile, we present some interesting reaching milestones and statistics ahead of the third Test.

England have played three Tests so far at Mohali, losing 2 and drawing the last one, in 2008. Barring Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore (where England have drawn 1 and lost 2) and Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai (all four drawn), Mohali is the only ground where England have played at least 3 Tests and have never won.

India have played 12 Tests at Mohali. They have won 6, lost 1 (the first match at the ground) and drawn 5. The win-loss ratio of 6 is India s best in any ground, home or away, where they have played 5 or more Tests.

Parthiv Patel last played a Test in August 2008 and will, unless something unexpected happens, make his comeback in the third Test between India and England at Mohali. In between, he missed 83 consecutive Tests. This is the 10th-most consecutive matches to be missed by any player for any team. The Indian record still belongs to Piyush Chawla, who missed 49 consecutive Tests. Parthiv himself had missed 43 consecutive Tests between his last two appearances. In other words, Parthiv has missed 126 of India s last 127 Tests.

England have bounced back after being down 0-1 to turn the series in their favour against India thrice 1984-85, 2012-13 and 2014.

At the age of 31, Parthiv will make his comeback in Tests at Mohali. However, India s last three players to receive a Test call at the age of 31 or more were all wicketkeepers Naman Ojha, Sameer Dighe and Saba Karim.

Parthiv needs one more dismissal to complete 50 Test dismissals as wicketkeeper. He will become the 8th Indian to have 50 or more Test dismissals as wicketkeeper after MS Dhoni (294), Syed Kirmani (198), Kiran More (130), Nayan Mongia (107), Farokh Engineer (82), Naren Tamhane (51) and Dinesh Karthik (50). Three more dismissals will put him at sixth spot.

Alastair Cook needs 105 runs more to complete 11,000 Test runs. He will become the fifth left-handed batsman to achieve this milestone and 11th overall. He also needs 33 to go past Steve Waugh to reach the 11th spot in the list of leading Test run-scorers in history.

Cook also needs 42 more to go past 2,000 runs against India in Tests. He will become the first opener to score 2,000 runs against India and sixth overall irrespective of batting position after Ricky Ponting (2,555 runs), Clive Lloyd (2,344), Javed Miandad (2,228), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (2,171) and Michael Clarke (2,049).

Chris Woakes needs 4 more wickets to complete 50 Test wickets. He will become 85th bowler, 54th fast bowler, and 48th right-arm fast bowler from England to reach this landmark.

Moeen Ali needs 5 more wickets to reach the landmark of 100 Test wickets. He will become the 46th bowler and 19th spinner from England to take 100 Test wickets.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar needs 9 more wickets to go past 50 Test wickets. He will become the 39th bowler and 16th pacer from India to take 50 Test wickets.

Ravindra Jadeja needs 9 more wickets complete 100 Test wickets. He will become 20th bowler and 14th spinner from India to achieve this milestone.

Cheteshwar Pujara needs 78 more runs to complete 1,000 runs against England in Tests. He will become 12th Indian batsman (first after MS Dhoni), 119th overall, and 89th among right-handed batsman to achieve this. Almost 30% of Pujara s career runs have come against England.

Jonny Bairstow needs 3 more dismissals to set a new world record for most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year. Bairstow, on 65 dismissals, will have to go past Adam Gilchrist (66), Mark Boucher (67) and Ian Healy (67). However, with Jos Buttler back in the side, it will be interesting to see who will keep wickets for England.

Joe Root needs only one more catch to register the record of most catches by an English cricketer in a calendar year by breaking his own record of 24 catches in 2015. Before him, the previous record was held by Tony Grieg for taking 23 catches in 1974. Also, with one catch, overall, Root will move to joint-9th position in terms of taking most catches in a calendar year after Graeme Smith (30 catches in 2008), Stephen Fleming (28 in 1997), Mark Taylor (27 in both 1995 and 1997), Jack Gregory (26 in 1921), Bob Simpson (26 in 1964), Mark Waugh (26 in 1999), Rahul Dravid (26 in both 2002 and 2004) and Ricky Ponting (25 in 2001).

Cook needs one more hundred to go past Kevin Pietersen s tally of 6 hundreds against India the most by any English batsman. The record for most Test hundreds by anyone against India (8) is shared by Garry Sobers, Viv Richards and Ricky Ponting.
