The India tour of England 2022 has started taking an amazing turn. It has gone down to the wire. The T20 series had a dead rubber type of match in the third game but the ODI series has a lot of fun. So, who will win the 3rd ODI? Who will take the honors away before the start of the 2023 World Cup? Both the teams are having the best players in the world and will be keen on taking away the bragging rights. Here is an in-depth preview of the 3rd ODI:
Indian Cricket Team Preview Before the 3rd ODI:
The Indian batting struggled big time against their dreaded opposition of left-arm fast bowlers. Reece Topley was the one who decimated the Indian batting. It was not the quick pace of Reece that rattled India but the angle that he creates which was causing trouble. But the batters will be keen to deal with this. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan did show some intent in the first game. Virat Kohli was also looking very comfortable. It would be good to see if the Indian team likes to bat first and get the runs on board in this pressure-filled game.
Rohit Sharma (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh
Indian Probable Playing XI for 3rd ODI:
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna.
England Cricket Team Preview Before the 3rd ODI:
The England batters are still having trouble while dealing with the Indian pacers and as soon as their spell gets over Yuzi Chahal walks in to increase their trouble. They are not able to effectively attack the Indian bowlers. Maybe they can pull this off in the last game. The bowlers on the other hand will be in the right frame of mind. David Willey and Reece Topley can fancy their chances as the Indians struggle with the left-arm angle.
England Team Squad:
Jos Buttler (c & wk), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Liam Livingstone, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Brydon Carse, Matthew Parkinson, Reece Topley, Craig Overton, Sam Curran, Philip Salt, Harry Brook
Pitch and Venue for the 3rd ODI:
The Venue for the 3rd ODI is Old Trafford Cricket Ground in London. The pitch is an average scoring one. The average score is 240. In recent times scores have inflated over 300. It is at times a happy hunting ground for bowlers when the conditions are overcast.
India to win the game. Virat Kohli is to be the player of the match.
