ENGLAND VS INDIA MATCH DETAILS
Match: England vs India, 3rd ODI, India tour of England, 2022
Date and Time: July 17, Sunday, 2022, 03:30 PM IST
Venue: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, England.
England will host India in the third and final ODI of the three-match series on Sunday, July 17. Emirates Old Trafford in London will play host to this all-important contest.
While India registered a thumping win in the first game, they received a dose of their own medicine from England in the second ODI. The hosts returned to level the series 1-1 with a 100-run win in the second ODI.
Batting first, they were in some early trouble after being reduced to 87 for the loss of four wickets. However, Liam Livingstone (33), David Willey (41), and Moeen Ali (47) made vital contributions as England managed to score 246 runs in their 50 overs.
Yuzvendra Chahal picked up four wickets while Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah picked up two wickets each. It was an improved performance from England with the bat as compared to the first ODI.
The target did not seem too big but the Indian batters struggled throughout the chase. They kept losing wickets right from the start and were reduced to 73/5. India could not recover as they were eventually bowled out for just 146, falling way short of the target.
Reece Topley returned with impressive figures of 6/24 in what was a magnificent bowling performance. It was an incredible all-around effort from the hosts in a must-win game to bounce back grandly.
The series now comes down to the final game. England will want to build on this win while India looks to make a comeback in the final ODI and end the tour on a high.
The ODI series is locked at 1-1 after both teams have won one match convincingly. The teams are closely matched clearly and that is the best kind of contest for bettors. There are a lot of value bets to explore and we will try to uncover some of the best ones.
England has the momentum after its confidence-boosting win in the previous match. The pressure is also going to be on India’s batters, especially Virat Kohli after they struggled against Reece Topley. The cricket betting sites are offering slightly shorter odds on England, thus making them the favorites.

ENG VS IND TEAM PREVIEWS
England struggled with the bat in the first match and seemed to be going a similar way in the second match as well before Moeen Ali bailed the team out with help from David Willey. The depth in the batting lineup is England’s biggest advantage. There are so many quality players that there is always someone coming that can bat even after losing 4-5 early wickets.
However, the fact that India’s bowlers have been able to put the English batters on the backfoot in every match should not be discounted. We have been betting against Jason Roy in this series and that has proven to be quite profitable. A similar sort of betting strategy in this match is something you can follow. If you want to back a batter to do well in this match, then maybe look at Joe Root. A man of his class in the best form of life is not going to miss out too often.
England also hit nearly twice the number of sixes in the previous match in comparison to India. With England’s batting strength and depth, betting on it to hit more sixes is a good option as well.
England’s bowling lineup was supposed to be the weak link but that was what propelled it to a victory. Reece Topley continued the trend of left-arm pacers doing well against India. He picked up six wickets in the match and ensured India never came close to the target.
Topley or Willey are two bowlers that you can bet on to take wickets once more. This is a high-risk betting market by design, though, so a small portion of your purse is the way to go here.
India would have been confident of winning the second match after having less than 250 to chase. With the kind of performance we saw from the Indian batters in the first match, this promised to be a breeze but that did not happen.
Not a single batter from India passed 30 and betting against Virat Kohli paid off once more. Painful as it may be for his fans, betting against Kohli has been our most profitable bet in these last few months. Yes, there will be a time when he scores runs but in his current form, we are going to continue betting against him at every opportunity.
The Over/Under markets never seem to move too much for Virat Kohli and you can continue to take advantage.
Apart from that, betting on Suryakumar Yadav and Rishab Pant to score runs are other options that we are quite bullish on.
India’s bowling has been very good in both matches. Apart from being a bit poor in the field and giving away some easy runs during the final few overs in the previous match, India’s bowlers always kept the pressure on the England batters.
Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami have been effective with the new ball but once again, we like Yuzvendra Chahal for the Top Bowler India market once more. He will get some help from the surface and will pose questions to the English batters. Once again, a risky betting market but you can bet on him for some promising returns.
ENGLAND VS INDIA PITCH REPORT

ENGLAND VS INDIA WEATHER FORECAST

ENGLAND VS INDIA PROBABLE XIS
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler (c/wk), Liam Livingstone, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Craig Overton, Brydon Carse, Reece Topley.
Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur / Prasidh Krishna, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami.
PROBABLE THE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH
Opening batter Shikhar Dhawan had a decent outing against England during the first ODI match but got out early in the second ODI after scoring just nine runs. Dhawan holds a lot of experience in the international arena and will back himself to play a big knock.
PROBABLE THE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH
England pacer Reece Topley was adjudged the Player of the Match after grabbing six wickets in the second ODI. Topley bowled with discipline and gave no freebies to Indian batters. The left-arm pacer will look to emulate his performance in the final match as well.
ENGLAND VS INDIA MATCH PREDICTION
The final ODI of this series will be the deciding match. Hence, both sides will be under pressure going into this game. India put up a brilliant showing in the first game. However, they could not carry the momentum as England leveled the series with a thrilling win in the second ODI.
The hosts are confident and will want to secure a series win after their loss in the T20Is. India will also be desperate to end the tour with a win and is expected to bounce back in this contest and win the ODI series.
Prediction: India to win this fixture.
