If you want to see cricket of the highest class, then the ongoing ODI series in England is the place to be. The rank 1 and 2 teams as per the ICC (international cricket council) ODI rankings are locking horns. Both teams are in good form and want to continue in that way. India already claimed the T20 series 2-1. The 3rd match of the India Vs England 3-match ODI series 2018 will be played at Headingly cricket ground, Leeds on 17th July 2018. England have already secured their numero uno spot in the rankings by comprehensively beating India in the second ODI by 86 runs. Still, the series and the bragging rights for the upcoming test series are at stake. Hence, we as spectators can expect a good match.
Team fielding first at Headingly holds the edge. We are excluding the 2 abandoned cricket matches played at the ground. Apart from those, in the other 38 matches, 23 times the team batting second has won. Therefore, it won’t be a surprise if either captain wishes to bowl first after winning the toss. With an average score of less than 250 runs on the ground, bowlers are in for a feast.
England are boosted with confidence not only by the win in the previous match but also by the return of form for Joe Root. He’s helped England to post a huge total in the last match and got out on the last ball after scoring a terrific century. However, England did not seem to find a cure for Kuldeep Yadav as of yet. Jos Buttler is in the form of his life and will again play a huge role. The bowling unit has found a right mix with the trio of Liam Plunkett Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid all claiming wickets between them in the 2nd match. The return of Mark Wood and David Willey strengths the squad. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are also in good touch and will look to make good of their starts. Joe Root will be looking to make a big score after being quite for some time.
India is looking to claim a 10th successive ODI series win on the trout. Indian batting and the bowling in the later part of the innings let them down in the last match. Captain Virat Kohli is expected to lead the batting from the front. Shikhar Dhawan has got the starts in the series and will be eager to convert them into big scores. Rohit Sharma is also in good form. The likes of Dhoni, Raina and Rahul will hold the responsibility to accelerate the innings if it comes to that. The bowling department looks a bit vulnerable. Apart from Kuldeep, all the other bowlers are going for runs. If Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns to the playing 11 it will be a big relief for Team India.
Even though everyone is favoring the English side due to the condition advantage, our prediction is that the Indian’s are bound to put up a strong fight. The team from the sub-continent is expected to go all out. We would like to take our chances and our prediction for India Vs England 3rd ODI 2018 is for India to Win.
