Watch India vs England Third Test live stream 

After a much needed break from the breathless action, India and England have recommenced battle at Rajkot for the Third Test with the series poised at 1-1 and with everything to play for. We have all the details below on how to watch India vs England free streams, TV channels and cable-free options too, wherever you are. You can use a VPN, such as ExpressVPN, to unblock India vs England live streams from anywhere.

And we really have ourselves a Test match. After India posted an intimidating 445 in their first innings, all eyes were on England's openers to see how they responded. Enter Ben Duckett, who swept and swiped his way to a third Test century, and in a mere 88 balls at that. With Joe Root at the other end, England will commence Day Three 238 behind with eight wickets in tact.

India continue the cricket without talismanic batter Virat Kohli, who has now been ruled out of the entire five-Test series due to personal reasons. But that has hardly mattered for the hosts, who enjoyed runs galore on day one and dominant centuries from captain Rohit Sharma and local lad Ravindra Jadeja. Add in debutant Sarfaraz Khan's impressive 62, and India have got themselves way ahead on 326-5 at stumps on day one.

Ben Stokes and England won't feel too dispirited until they too have had a bat on a track that tends to favor the batting side. Joe Root and Stokes himself have both made Test tons here before, and Duckett went full 'Bazball' to put the pressure right back on to the India bowlers.

They're once again relying on the inexperienced spin duo of Rehan Ahmed and Tom Hartley, after attack leader Jack Leach was ruled out of the remainder of the games due to injury. Mark Wood is preferred as a second seamer ahead of young offie Shoaib Bashir. Read on as we explain how to live stream India vs England and watch the Third Test online from wherever you are – including details of how to watch for free.
