India v England 3rd ODI Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner

The way England collapsed in the opening ODI defeat against India was unacceptable and they were roundly criticised, but they deserve all the praise coming their way for the way they batted in the second ODI which they won by six wickets to level the series. England won the toss and put India into bat, with the hosts posting a very competitive total of 336-6 with KL Rahul top scoring with 108 from 114 deliveries. Seeing the way they collapsed on Tuesday, even the most ardent England fan would have been forgiven for writing off their chances of winning the second ODI. Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes had other ideas, they both batted brilliantly with 124 and 99 respectively, while Liam Livingstone helped England over the line with an unbeaten 27 on his ODI debut. Victory for England means Sunday’s final game is the decider, and the way they chased down that big total, I am backing England to win this one and salvage a little bit of pride from what has been a long and disappointing tour.

We all knew they could bat, but England finally proved it as they chased down a big total of 336 to win the second ODI and level up the series. Jason Roy blasted 55 from 52 balls, while Jonny Bairstow (124) and Ben Stokes hit 17 sixes between them (99). Stokes will be frustrated that he couldn’t reach three figures, but he gets another chance on Sunday, Batting at number three suits him, and I am backing him to top score for England on their way to winning the series.

I think it’s safe to say that there will be plenty of runs scored in the third and final ODI, and India have plenty of match winners in their team. Virat Kohli is in superb form, he has scored 122 runs in two matches, and I am backing him to top score for the hosts. His experience and composure will be key for India, if he can keep his wicket they will run England very close.
