Pune: India and England will play the third and final ODI in Pune today. After losing the Test and T20 series, England will definitely want to win the one-day series so that this long tour ends on a good note. Some of England’s players will not play in this match either. Joe Root and Jofra Archer were not included in this series and now England’s regular captain Eion Morgan will also not play in this match. Morgan did not even play the last match and was replaced by Joss Butler as captain.
Chasing 317 runs in the first match, England had a great start and lost their first wicket for 135 runs. But after that, England batting collapsed, and the whole team was dismissed after scoring 251 runs in just 42 overs. But the England team, chasing 337 runs in the second match, did not visit the mistake they made in the first match. After getting a good start, he carried it, and for the second wicket, Johnny Bairstow and Ben Stoke formed a long partnership. Due to which England achieved this target in just 43.3 overs and leveled the series.
So in the third ODI, who wins today will also win the series, both England and India will try hard for it.
What to expect in Final ODI
In the last ODI, the fast bolero of both England and India performed well. But the performance of India’s spinners was abysmal. Krunal Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav gave a lot of runs, while both failed to get any wickets. At the beginning of the innings, the fast bowler gets a little help with the new ones, but as this progresses, this help becomes less, and it becomes effortless for the batsman to play the short.
Expected team in Final ODI
Today there is less chance of more changes in the England team. Some changes can definitely be made in the India team. And these changes will mostly be in the bowling department. Today, perhaps Yuzvendra Chahal should be fed in place of Kuldeep Yadav and the same to T Natarajan in place of Shardul Thakur.
Today also, England will be captained by Joss Butler will do in the absence of Eion Morgan.
