India got off to a steady start against England in the third and final ODI, at MCA Stadium in Pune. The series is finely balanced at 1-1, and both teams will be aiming for a win. Forerunners Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are batting for India and will aim to increase the pressure on opposition bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav was not included in the lineup for India, with T Natarajan replacing him. Meanwhile, Mark Wood has replaced Tom Curran. The hosts will aim for a better display from their bowlers, having lost in the second ODI by six wickets. Jonny Bairstow will try to build on his good form, having recorded a century in the previous match. KL Rahul will also try to do the same, despite a ton of slaps for a cause lost in the previous match. (LIVE SCORECARD)
