Now the focus shifts to Ahmedabad. The refurbished Motera Stadium, which is now the world's biggest cricket stadium, will host both the third and fourth Test matches. The third match, starting February 24 has an extra dimension as it will be a Day-Night match. This will be India's third overall and second pink-ball match at home.

Then there are ICC World Test Championship points to fight for too. New Zealand have already qualified for the Lord's final. And as things stand, three teams -- India, England and Australia -- can qualify.

India need to win the series at least by a margin of 2-1. So they can still afford to draw one and win another. For England, they need to win both the remaining matches. And if the series is drawn or England win 2-1, then Australia qualify.
