India will look forward to make a strong comeback as they face confident England in the third and final match at the Headingley Cricket ground here on Tuesday. After losing the second One-Day International (ODI) it will be a series decided for both the teams.
England levelled the three match series with a convincing 86-run victory at Lord’s, having been comprehensively beaten in the opening match at Trent Bridge. After first ODI victory, India made couple of mistakes in the second match. First the bowlers leaked few extra runs which helped England post a challenging total and then batsmen failed to rise to the occasion.
Apart from Suresh Raina and skipper Virat Kohli no other batsman could face English bowlers perfectly. Wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Shikhar Dhawan, however, got the good starts but could able to utilise it. Middle-order batsmen Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya also drastically failed. So, in order to give English bowlers tough times in the middle, Indian batting line-up must click in unisom.
