The 3rd India-England
The 3rd India-England Test will be the first international match at the Motera since its renovation.

India vs England: While Ahmedabad has been a Test venue for a long time, it has seen only two India-England matches, with the hosts taking the lead.

India and England are 1–1 in the third Test match being played at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad and are at stake in the final of the World Test Championship. This will be the first international match since the stadium was renovated – a position that has become the largest cricket stadium in the world. It will also be a day-night Test, which will be the second match to be held in India after the Pink Ball Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in 2019. Motera will also host the fourth and final Test between the two teams.
