Overview: With the series back online, UK visitors will look to put their India tour on a high note when they take on Virat Kohli and Co in the third and final ODI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadium in Pune on Sunday.

England lost the test series 3-1 before conceding the T20Is 2-1, and an ODI series should surely put a smile on the visitors’ side.

Things turned from bad to worse for the world champions when skipper Eoin Morgan was sent off for the past two days after maintaining a slit strap between his index finger and thumb in his right hand. As a result, Jos Buttler has taken over as captain for the remaining matches. Meanwhile, speedster Jofra Archer has also been banned from ODIs after injuring his hand and the ECB said in a statement Archer would undergo surgery on Monday. Archer has already returned to the UK.

Meanwhile, India will be focusing on their bowling department after their batsmen have performed quite well in the second ODI.

KL Rahul led the charts with a century (108), while Virat Kohli (66) and Rishabh Pant (77) clinched their 50s to take India to 336-6.

However, the expensive bowling numbers of Kuldeep Yadav (0/84) and Krunal Pandya (0/72) proved to be costly as the English First Order consisting of Jason Roy (55), Jonny Bairstow (124) and Ben Stokes (99 ) has upgraded the hosts.

This may prompt hosts to swap the duo with Yuzvendra Chahal and Washtington Sundar.

Teams:

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), KL Rahul (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur.

England: Jos Buttler (Captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Livingstone, Matt Parkinson, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, Mark Wood. Covers: Jake Ball, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan.
