India gave England a target of 330 runs
Earlier, Virat Kohli’s fate in the coin bounce did not happen again and India had to get down to bat first. Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya scored half-centuries, but India only managed to reach 329 against England in an effort to score big. India’s target was more than 360 runs, as England had easily achieved the target of 337 runs in the last match, but they could not succeed in this strategy by losing wickets in an effort to play long shots.
Wickets fell after a good start
Dhawan (67 runs from 56 balls, 10 fours) and Rohit Sharma (37 off 37 balls, six fours) gave India a good start by adding 103 runs for the first wicket but scoring four wickets in the middle overs was quick. 157 runs scored. Rishabh Pant (78 off 62 balls) and Hardik Pandya (64 off 44 balls) then added 99 runs. Both of them hit the same five fours and four sixes. After the top order faltered, Rishabh and Hardik also needed to play it out in which they failed. India lost the last four wickets within eight runs. For England, Mark Wood took three for 34 and Adil Rashid took two wickets for 81 runs.
Playing gave the team a good start, but after that, within 18 runs, apart from both the openers, losing the wicket of captain Kohli (seven), the team came under pressure. Rashid bowled Rohit to Googly and again exposed the weakness of Indians playing such balls. Dhawan also failed to understand the googly and caught Rashid back, while Moin Ali (one for 39), pitching outside the off stump, turned the leg stump by taking a turn. Kohli was surprised by this turn.
Finally, India Won the Ind vs Eng 3rd Oneday series.
