India vs England 3rd ODI (Match Preview)

Kolkata: After thrashing England in the first and the second one day match comprehensively, Indian team will be hoping for the big margin win in the third and the final match of the series.

This series is also considered to be the preparation opportunity for the Indian team ahead of the ICC Champions trophy.

Men in blue have already won the first two matches played against England in this series at Pune and Cuttack while on the other hand this will the perfect opportunity for coach Anil Kumble and captain Kohli to see all the options they have in the squad before meet one-off Test against Bangladesh and then the four-match series against Australia.



With the likes of Kedar Jadhav stepping up along with the experienced players like Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in stupendous form, Indian team is looking solid to clinch the series.

The only worry for the Indian team management is the opening slot where both Shikhar Dhawan and K.L. Rahul have failed to get runs. Dhawan might possibly get dropped in the final one day keeping in mind that Rahane has still not been given chance in this series to showcase his talent at the top of the order.

For England, their captain Eoin Morgan has looked in inspiring form along with Moeen Ali and was seen pretty much confident chasing even such huge target that was set by the Indian team.

Final match of the series will be played at the Eden garden and is again expected to be a high-scoring one bereft of any grass. However, keeping in mind that the ground is far bigger than Pune and Cuttack, the competition might be tougher and interesting as well.
