India are set to face England in the third and final ODI in the three-match ODI series at the Emirates Old Trafford on Sunday, July 15.
England suffered a thrashing defeat in the opening clash. Jos Buttler made a disappointing start to his reign as the captain of the English limited-overs team. The side suffered a 2-1 T20 series defeat. He has taken the reign from the World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, who announced his retirement from international cricket after witnessing a dip in his form for a long time. The batting line-up could not withstand the lethal bowling attack of the Indians in the opening match and ended up suffering a disappointing loss. Howwveer, they managed to bounce back in the second clash after a bowling masterclass from Reece Topley.
On the other hand, the Men In Blue had an excellent outing during the recently concluded T20I series. They were absolutely emphatic in the opening clash of the ODI series. Speedster Jasprit Bumrah notched a six-wicket haul and tallied his career-best figures to help his side secure the dominating win. However, they crippled in the second match having suffered a loss by a margin of 100 runs.
