An all-round performance by Windies in the 2nd ODI enabled them to level the series against England. A comprehensive victory in the Test series and now this win in the second ODI has boosted the home team’s confidence and hence England despite being the most powerful and the number one ODI team in the world will be on the backfoot in the WI vs ENG 3rd ODI.
And this is what makes the third ODI exciting. Very few teams have challenged England in ODIs in the recent past so Morgan and Co. have all the reasons to up the ante while the Windies players will be riding high on confidence. In this exciting match, watch these three players in action as they will have huge role to play.
Morgan hailed Root as the ‘rock’ of the team and there is a strong evidence for it. In a side full of powerful hitters and swashbuckling batsmen, Root is the one who can anchor the innings and importantly has the skills and the temperament to stay till the end.
And he has also proved that he can accumulate runs at a brisk pace which makes him even more dangerous. He has already one hundred in this series and he is looking good for another big score.
The ‘Universal Boss’ has already made it clear that he wants to finish his ODI career on a high note and he signalled his intentions by slamming a big hundred in the first ODI.
He is looking in ominous touch and his incredible six-hitting ability is something England will be wary of.
With three wickets in the first game and a half-century in the second game, Ben Stokes has already made a strong impact in this series but the all-rounder will be looking forward to deliver a match-winning effort in the third ODI.
His batting has been effective so far and once again he will be the key for England in the death overs.
