IND vs ENG 3rd ODI: Ongoing India vs England series couldn’t have a better ending. Both teams are aiming to win the 3-match ODI series that is locked at 1-1.
India won the series opener by 66 wickets before England came out in the 2nd ODI with flying colours, making the mockery of India’s daunting total of 336 runs by bullying their way to the total in less than 44 overs.
England laid out the print in front of India. The Three Lions are definitely an explosive team in white-ball cricket.
But this is the final. There’s no ifs and buts. India and England both will have to get their plans right to lift the trophy.
With Hardik Pandya not being used as a bowler, Indian team management has bolstered its pace attack by including T Natarajan in the INDIA Starting XI for the India vs England 3rd ODI match.
T Natarajan has replaced Kuldeep Yadav in the playing 11 for the IND vs ENG 3rd ODI match.
Yadav, who has gone for plenty, has definitely lost the magic touch that made him a wicket-taker and one of the first names on India’s white-ball teams.

England Playing 11: That’s How England Have Lined Up
Spinners toyed with England’s batsmen right through the Tests series. But the fortunes have turned for the worst for the Indian spinners in the white-ball. Axar Patel hasn’t been that effective and was dropped from India Playing 11, while Washington Sundar flattered to deceive at best.
Even worse have been Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya, easy pickings for English batsmen.
But Kunal Pandya is the only recognized spin bowler in India’s playing 11 for the 3rd ODI match.
One stats that may rattle Indian Cricket fans is that spinners have given more than 280 runs in 35 overs in this ODI series while picking only one wicket.
That’s the reason behind Yuzvendra Chahal‘s absence from India Playing 11 in the 3rd ODI. Spin is Team India’s Achilles Heal at the moment. Chahal is a good bowler, no doubt about that and can win the game for India on his own, but at the moment, spin isn’t working for Virat Kohli and Co.
