India had no answers to England’s stunning comeback in the second ODI and have levelled the series 1-1 with one game to go in the three-match series at Pune. England batsman smashed the Indian bowling to all parts and India needs to address a lot of issues before they go into the decider on March 29.
India started off very slowly in the early stages of the innings which hampered their final score and it wasn’t enough for the strong England batting lineup who is used to scoring more than 350 runs in ODI internationals now. England cruised to victory with six wickets in hand while Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes were the stars of the show. Here are 3 changes that team India needs to make to win the third ODI.
3 Changes That Team India Need To Make To Win The Third ODI:
Replace Kuldeep with Chahal:
Kuldeep Yadav did not have the best of outings in the first two ODIs and he was smashed to all parts of the ground specifically by England all-rounder Ben Stokes. Kuldeep hasn’t looked like getting any wickets in the middle overs and has also gone for plenty in the recent matches. He has still got the skipper’s backing but hasn’t gained any confidence rather from his last two games.
On the other hand, Chahal has been on the expensive side too but the positive side is that he has chipped in with wickets at times. Chahal was dropped from the T20 series after poor outings in the first three games and India decided to go in with Kuldeep in the ODI series. India will need Chahal desperately in the next game and Kuldeep might have to make way for him.
