India will look to bounce again after struggling a 6-wicket loss within the second One-Day Worldwide (ODI) towards England in Pune on Friday. The hosts appeared clueless towards the onslaught from Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes, who placed on a stand of 175 runs off simply 117 balls to place England on track of their highest profitable chase towards India within the 50-over format. England’s complete win on Friday took the sequence right into a decider, to be performed on the identical venue on Sunday. Whereas England have momentum on their aspect after a medical efficiency, India would wish to herald some modifications to their bowling division.
The hosts could not management the scoring fee within the center overs as Bairstow and Stokes smashed the Indian bowlers to all elements of the MCA stadium.
India performed two left-arm spinners — Krunal Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav. Each spinners proved to be costly, making a gift of 156 runs in 16 overs.
Kuldeep went for 84 from his spell of 10 overs whereas Krunal gave away 72 runs from his six overs.
Prasidh Krishna got here again properly in the direction of the top of his spell however his preliminary spell once more provided boundary balls to England.
India have a lot of choices of their squad who can come into the taking part in XI and Virat Kohli may wish to shuffle his combos a bit for the sequence decider.
Shardul Thakur, who has performed seven video games on the trot (5 T20Is and a pair of ODIs) is likely to be rested and T Natarajan might are available as a left-arm tempo bowling possibility.
One other change that would happen is Yuzvendra Chahal coming instead of Kuldeep Yadav who has failed to go away his mark within the two ODIs he has performed thus far within the sequence.
Kohli, after the second ODI, was glad along with his workforce’s batting efficiency and after KL Rahul’s century, there may be hardly any room for modifications.
