Ind vs Eng: How will be India's playing XI in the third ODI, this player is sure to be out
Last Update: 2021-03-27 23:40:45 IST
The Indian team may enter the third ODI with a possible change. Spinner Kuldeep Yadav can be ruled out. In the first and second ODIs, he openly scored runs while the wicket did not get a single.
The Indian team will play against England in a decisive match in the three-match ODI series in Pune on Sunday. After the crushing defeat in the second ODI on Friday, the possibility of change in the playing eleven of the Indian team has increased. Batting first, India had scored a score of 336 but the team could not defend it due to poor bowling.
If captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri have to win the series, then the bowling department will have to get down. If the team's shots are not able to defend a big score like 336 runs, then it is not a big concern. The Indian team may enter the third ODI with a possible change. Spinner Kuldeep Yadav can be ruled out. In the first and second ODIs, he openly scored runs while the wicket did not get a single.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will be seen opening the innings for India. Both will be expected to start big. In the second ODI, India scored 336 runs on the basis of the batting of captain Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. No change is expected here.
Rishabh Pant, who returned to the rhythm on the tour of Australia, made a strong comeback in the second ODI and scored a half-century. It is expected that he will remain in the team as a wicketkeeper even in the last match.
In the debut ODI, Krunal batted strongly while also taking a wicket. In the second ODI, he could neither be special to the batsman nor be economical in bowling. Yet his place in the team seems to be fixed.
Kuldeep is unlikely to play in the third match after being beaten strongly in both the first matches. Yuzvendra Chahal can be given a place in his playing eleven. There is little hope of change in fast bowling too. Renowned Krishna and Shardul Thakur, along with veteran Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, will be seen playing in the decider.
