India vs England 3rd ODI Predicted Playing 11: India’s total of 336 was made to look far from sufficient in the 2nd ODI and so the last match of England’s two-month tour is a series decider. India are looking for a hat-trick of series wins after coming out on top in the Tests and T20Is. The visitors, despite having pushed India to the limits, will be looking for some silverware to take back for their efforts.

England hit an astounding 20 sixes in a 337-run chase which became a cakewalk, thanks to inept bowling from spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya. Kuldeep leaked 84 runs in the second game after giving 64 runs in the first. And, so did Krunal Pandya, who gave 72 runs in six overs with an embarrassing average of 12 per over.

Skipper Virat Kohli, who hit two successive 50 plus scores, would be keen to carry his form and convert the start into a really big total and end the century drought.
Hardik would continue to play his role of a finisher but question mark remains on what kind of workload management is happening considering that he has rarely bowled save a few overs in the recently concluded T20 International.
