India vs. England 2021 : HIGH SCORING SERIES-DECIDER || 3rd ODI
India vs. England 2021
3rd ODI – Sun, 28th March
Strategy Change For India?
India has given an excellent account of itself in both ODIs. While Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have scored half-centuries in both matches, Rishabh Pant’s blitz in the second game adds significance and explosiveness to their batting line-up.
The Indian bowlers were disappointing in the last outing. They were battered heavily by the likes of Bairstow and Stokes. Failing to create pressure on the batters in the initial powerplay overs, they have been miserable. They will also need to develop better plans if the Men in Blue are to secure the series.
Possible playing XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul (WK), Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Virat Kohli (C), Yuzvendra Chahal/Kuldeep Yadav, and Prasidh Krishna.
England Stamping Authority:
The series is evenly perched at 1-1, with England levelling the series with a fantastic chase on Friday. Riding on Jonny Bairstow’s plum patch with the bat, the tourists chased down 336 without shattering a sweat. The England top-order surpassed that performance and utterly crushed the Indian bowling attack.
Nevertheless, England will need their bowlers to pull up their socks in the series-tiebreaker. Much is anticipated of Adil Rashid and Reece Topley, both of whom had modest outings in the second game.
Possible playing XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (C & WK), Mark Wood/Tom Curran, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, and Reece Topley.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
The third and final ODI between India and England will be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune, on 28th march Sunday.
Another high-scoring match is on the cards, with there being not much help on a deal for the bowlers. While the speedsters have relished a hint of extra bounce and swing in the game’s early phase, the ball should come on properly to the bat. The batters should be able to play their regular game from ball one. With the wicket not anticipated to differ much between the two innings, neither side would psyche batting first upon winning the toss.
India is at the pre-match odds of 1.71 while England is at 2.10.If the wicket plays as we presume, then there is a lot of action on the match odds.
The side batting first should be adept of 300 or more – and 330 seems to be about par – so anticipate the team batting first to curtail. If it is England, we have the chance of a comparatively easy change into favourite position.
That is the perfect situation because we would be expecting India to chase cool-headedly. We could have an upturn on the cards at the innings break, and we would be glad to take huge numbers on India chasing after 330-370.
