The 3rd ODI match between India and England will be held at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. The match will be kicked off on 28th March (Sunday) at 14:00 (GMT+6).
This match promises to be a blockbuster encounter. Both sides have won one match each, and this is the game that will determine the winner.
India beat England by 66 runs in the first ODI game. In that game, the hosts batted first and scored 317 runs, thanks to magnificent knocks from Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli and Krunal Pandya. The visitors’ top-order put up a strong fight at first, but their middle-overs collapse made them lose the game.
England beat India by 6 wickets in the second ODI match. India was forced to bat first after losing the toss. The Men In Blue lost both of their openers in the powerplay, but Lokesh Rahul and the captain Virat Kohli stitched a promising partnership for the 3rd wicket. Kohli’s century drought continued this time, as he was trapped on the score of 66.
Rishabh Pant smashed a quick-fire of 77 runs to help to shift the momentum into India’s favour. Lokesh Rahul scored a magnificent hundred to help his team reach a massive total of 336 runs. Jonny Bairstow’s match-winning 124 runs and Ben Stokes’ thunderous 99 runs off just 50 balls helped England chase down the total in the 44th over.
In the afternoon, it will be sunny and bright with a maximum temperature of 39 degrees Celsius, and it will be calmer to 34 degrees Celsius in the evening, with low humidity of 17%. For this game, there is no chance of rainfall.
The pacers can benefit from the pitch in the third ODI if they hit the right area. Though batsmen would relish the opportunity to bat on the flat surface, bowlers must hit the right length and line. In the second half of the match, the dew factor plays a big role, making it difficult for bowlers to grip the ball.
