Stuart Broad: This has been a superb turn around series for Broad so far after he was struggling to pick up wickets not so long ago. He single handedly led the fightback from the home side on the first two days of the second test match showing great skills with both bat and ball and laid his claims to fill the big boots of Andrew Flintoff.
RahulDravid: He has been the best batsman for the tourists by quite a distance and his recall into the ODI fold after a 2 year hiatus proves his immense value in testing conditions. Even at the age of 38, the technique of Dravid is nearly flawless and he only needs the support from his teammates at the other end to pile huge scores for the team.
Match Prediction: England are on a roll and have simply outplayed the Indians in every department. The home team on current form should be runaway favourites but the Indians will be hoping that some of their big names shine with the bat to enable them to compete.
