India vs England, ENG Playing 11 vs IND (Predicted), 3rd ODI, India Tour Of England 2022. The 3rd One Day match between India and England will be played on 17th July 2022, Sunday. The match will be played at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, and will get started at 03:30 PM as per Indian Standard Time. The toss of the match will be at 03:00 PM. 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) looked 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.
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.
