Rohit Sharma will be the captain of team India and Jos Buttler lead the England Team.

The stage is all set for two of the top teams to face off for one last time in this tour. England first clawed their way back to win the final test and level the series 2-2 after which India stormed in the T20I series to win comprehensively by 2-1. Now, the ODI series is poised as 1-1 with the last match to be played.

In the 2nd ODI, England openers Jonny Bairstow (38 runs) and Jason Roy (23 runs) weathered the early threat with the new ball at the top but a mini-collapse in the middle overs took them to 148/6. Moeen Ali (47 runs), Liam Livingstone (33 runs), and David Willey (41 runs) chipped in with vital cameos in the middle overs to take them to a fightable target of 246 runs. Reece Topley registered his best figures of 6/24 to help their team win.

India’s top order imploded to 31/4 in the 11th over with their top-4 back in the hut. Suryakumar Yadav (29 runs), Hardik Pandya (28 runs), and Ravindra Jadeja (27 runs) look to rebuild their innings but were unable to put a big score on board.

They never really troubled the chase big time in the last game as they were bundled out for just 146 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers in the last game as he picked up 4 crucial wickets in the middle order.

Pacer Prasidh Krishna was given the nod for the first two ODIs over Shardul Thakur and Arshdeep Singh, as the third seamer after Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. He picked up one wicket each in both the games but has been a touch expensive.

Prasidh Krishna conceded 26 runs in five overs at The Oval and 53 runs in eight overs at Lord’s. With Shardul Thakur waiting in the ranks, he might be given the thumbs up to start on Sunday over Prasidh Krishna.

In the two matches, Hardik Pandya has bowled a total of only ten overs, bagging two wickets for 50 runs. He scalped key wickets of Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone in the second ODI. Given that he has been bowling fairly well on the tour, picking up some crucial wickets with decent economy rates, he must bowl more in the upcoming game.

Suryakumar Yadav has been in a good form across both limited-overs formats, and it is a must for India to utilize that by giving the batter more time in the middle. He batted at number five in the second ODI, behind Rishabh Pant, who came in at number four.

The number four position seems ideal, at the moment, for Suryakumar Yadav, so that he can come earlier and stop a potential collapse after losing two wickets. Rishabh Pant, on the other hand, has batted at the number five spot in the past and can be given the license to play his natural attacking game in that position.

As for England, since they have both won and lost with the same playing eleven, they would look to continue with the same. For a second, someone can think that Manchester is a bit spin-friendly and hence Matthew Parkinson could be tried. However, Matthew Parkinson is not a proven talent in the longer 50 overs format. Moreover, Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali along with a bit of Joe Root can bowl out 10 overs of spin if required. Thus no changes are expected in England playing eleven.
