In the India tour of England 2022, the third ODI of the three-match bilateral series will take place on Sunday, July 17 at 3:30 PM IST at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. The upcoming fixture is going to be a series decider as both teams have won one game each so far.
After succumbing to the English bowlers on a bouncy pitch in the previous game, Rohit Sharma and Co will aim to bounce back in the final game and win the series. The top four Indian batsmen didn’t contribute much, which also included two ducks. Prior to the batting debacle, the silver lining for the visitors was the bowlers, who bowled exceptionally well in the first innings to restrict England below 250. The Indian camp will leave no stone unturned to clinch the third ODI and also the bilateral series.
The Jos Butler-led England team will walk into the upcoming fixture with their heads up high following an emphatic victory. The moderately experienced Reece Topley has been creating issues for the Indian batters with his line, length and bounce. The likes of Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Butler continue to underperform but Moeen Ali continues to fight back down the order with the bat. The hosts will count on their in-form players to step up on the big occasion and secure a home series victory.
The head-to-head numbers between the two teams favour India. The two sides collided 105 times, India won 56 games while England emerged victorious on 44 occasions.
In the last outing between the two teams, which took place earlier this week on Thursday, the hosts won the fixture by 100 runs.
