England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

England have been struck with another injury blow. Opening batsman Jason Roy had injured his finger while fielding in the second ODI at the Lord’s and he is unlikely to feature in Tuesday’s decider. Sam Billings has been drafted into the squad as Roy’s replacement. However, James Vince who had been added to the squad to replace Dawid Malan is more likely to open the batting alongside Jonny Bairstow if Roy is deemed unfit. The hosts are already missing Chris Woakes, Alex Hales and Tom Curran who are all out injured.

ENG Key Players

Joe Root was at his best against India at Lord’s, hitting a century and nullifying the threat of Kuldeep Yadav in a composed innings. Root averages exactly 50 in ODIs.

Eoin Morgan also weighed in with a half-century – a handy return to form given the Irish-born ODI captain has enjoyed great success in the past at Headingley.

With Root and Morgan back in form, England boast a brilliant top-five – with Jos Buttler in supreme form, including top-scoring in the first ODI and the final game against Australia before that too.

Jonny Bairstow has weighed in with plenty of runs too, helping England get off to some rapid starts.

With the ball, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid now have 35 wickets in their last ten matches between them. Rashid took 2-38 an Ali 1-42 from ten overs last time out.

ENG Team Form

England have won six of their eight ODIs so far this summer. A shock defeat to Scotland started the summer but they bounced back from that six-run defeat with a 5-0 series whitewash against Australia.

England bowled Australia out on four of the five occasions, and also hit a world record 481/6 from their 50 overs in the third match. Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler all scored plenty of runs.

Against India, Kuldeep Yadav’s mystery spin earned the tourists a win at Trent Bridge but England hit back with Joe Root scoring a century as England posted 322/7 before bowling India out for 236.

England Predicted Playing 11

  • James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has missed the first two ODIs and his absence – and that of injured Jasprit Bumrah – was keenly felt in the second match at Lord’s as India lacked death bowlers. England’s acceleration in the final ten overs should mean Kumar will return if he is deemed fit enough – Rohit Sharma claimed he was training with the team ahead of the series. If Kumar returns, Siddarth Kaul is likely to be the man to miss out.

IND Key Players

Six wickets in the first match and three in the second means Yadav has 29 ODI wickets in his last ten matches. He was also in brilliant form in the T20 series against both Ireland and England – claiming seven wickets in two matches against Ireland before his 5/24 in the first match against England.

Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal claimed 33 wickets between them against South Africa too, with Chahal now on 24 from his last ten matches.

India’s batting is their biggest strength, meanwhile, with Rohit Sharma proving his quality in the first ODI. His unbeaten 137 from 114 balls led England to victory, after he had scored a century in the final T20i too. Virat Kohli scored 558 runs in the six matches against South Africa, meanwhile, and has added 75 and 45 in the two matches in this series.

After coming in for criticism for his slow scoring in the second ODI, MS Dhoni will feel he has a point to prove too – at his best, he remains one of the most explosive lower-order batsmen in the game.

IND Team Form

India won five of their six matches against South Africa as they geared up for this series, with their spin bowlers taking plenty of wickets and Virat Kohli scoring loads of runs The final two games in that series saw them bowl South Africa out for 201 and 204.

They then brought that form to England, bowling the hosts out for a below-par 268 at Trent Bridge before Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli guided them to an eight-wicket win. They could not carry that form – where Kuldeep Yadav had claimed 6/25 – to Lord’s, however, on a less spin-friendly wicket.

Joe Root led England to 322/7 despite another three wickets for Kuldeep, but India’s reply never really got going as they were bowled out of the final ball of the innings for 236.

India Predicted Playing 11

  • Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav

  • ENG vs IND Head to Head

    India won their last ODI series against England, beating them 2-1 at home in January 2017. Three high-scoring games in India saw Virat Kohli lead the chase of 350 to win the first match before a massive 381/6 in the second game proved 15 runs too much for England to chase.

    England won the third game, defending 321/8 in a five-run win, and have now won two of the last three matches between the two teams. In England, India won in spin-friendly conditions at Trent Bridge but England hit back at Lord’s thanks to Joe Root’s century.

    India vs England Betting Odds

    The bookmakers are split for the final ODI, with England and India both 1.90 to win with Bet365.

    India’s spinners will not get the same help they got from the pitch at Trent Bridge, so it may be similar to Lord’s in that respect, but India’s batsmen could score plenty at Headingley.

    In-form Rohit Sharma is 3.75 to be India’s top scorer, while Virat Kohli is 3.50. Shikhar Dhawan may feel he owes India a big innings on this tour too. He is 4.50 to top score.

    For England, Joe Root is 4.50 to be top scorer again, on his home ground – the same price as Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy.

    Eoin Morgan has a great record at Headingley, however, and could be worth a punt at 6.50 to be England’s tops batsman given he played his way into form in the second ODI.

    England vs India Prediction

    This will not be as one-sided as the Trent Bridge match, but India can still bounce back from defeat at Lord’s. Their batsmen simply failed to fire in the second ODI but with such batting strength in depth it is hard to imagine that being repeated.
