Mumbai: England captain Joe Root is impressed by the “unprecedented” Motera Stadium – the venue for the third Test between India and England – and said the atmosphere inside the stadium will be “electric” when they take the field on Wednesday.
“It is a phenomenal stadium. I am sure you are going to see some fantastic cricket on this ground for years. It looks fantastic, hopefully, the wicket can produce some very good cricket. I am sure the atmosphere within (the stadium) will be electric. It is also great to see fans back in the previous game. I am sure with the capacity of this ground that noise will go up and you want to be a part of big games,” Root said during a virtual press conference on Tuesday.
India had defeated England by 317 runs in the second Test and now both teams are getting ready to make it to the day-night Test at the newly constructed Motera Stadium.
A win in Chennai took India to second place in the World Test Championship points table with 69.7 percentage points, but they could not lose another match as they won 2–1 or 3–1 in the final of the first edition.
