India vs England 3rd ODI, Playing-11: The third and deciding ODI match will be played between India and England on Sunday. Team India would like to make the series after making some important changes in the last match.
Pune: Team India will look to beat England in the third and final ODI on Sunday to win the series. With this, his effort will also be to beat England in the series of three formats. Team India defeated England in the Test and T20 International series, but in the ODI series, both teams are currently 1-1. It is not an easy target for Team India to overcome England’s ODI team.
Team India won the first ODI by a margin of 66 runs, but after this, World Champion England made a great comeback and took the second ODI by 6 wickets with 39 balls left. Johnny Bairstow (124) and Ben Stocks (99), the innings of the visiting team, made the goal extremely easy. England got off to a great start by the openers in the current ODI series and shared a 110-run partnership. Like the first ODI, the Indian bowlers failed to do anything amazing in the second ODI and England equalized the series 1-1.
Team India can now enter the third ODI with one or two changes. The Indian team missed the sixth bowler and also played a strong shot in the middle order. Team India needs improvement in these two places. Let’s look at which 11 players the Indian team can handle in the third ODI.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will be seen together once again. These two junk players of the Indian team once came in rhythm, then it is difficult to stop them. For 8 years, both of them have been proving it well. This is the reason why there is no change in the opening.
In the middle order of Team India, the batsmen managed to bat well, but the speed needed was not seen. Kohli scored 66 runs in 79 balls. Rahul scored 108 runs in 114 balls. After this, Hardik Pandya played a flamboyant inning, but the dot ball was already junked. There is no need to change the middle order of Team India, but the players will have to play a fast inning with responsibility so that the team can score big. Krunal Pandya will have to complete his full 10 overs while Hardik also needs to wave his hands.
Changes can be seen in this area. Kuldeep Yadav was a flop in the first two ODIs and now Yuzvendra Chahal can get a chance in his place. Apart from this, one can try T Natarajan or Mohammed Siraj by relaxing Shardul Thakur or one of the famous Krishna.
India’s likely playing XI for the third ODI is as follows
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (captain), Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Eminent Krishna and T Natarajan.
