In the third and final ODI against England, India won the toss and chose to bowl. Because both teams have won their previous matches, the winner of this match will clinch the ODI series. Mohammad Siraj, who took over for Jasprit Bumrah due to injury, started well.
With a double in the first over, Mohammad Siraj got India off to a good start. As England advanced with few partnerships, it was Hardik Pandya who sent the grounders out. He dismissed Ben Stokes and Jason Roy in his first spell, then Liam Livingston and Jos Buttler.
Watch Liam Livingston’s Dismissal:
Those two catches were made by Ravindra Jadeja. Both wickets were taken in the 37th over. Hardik Pandya was welcomed with a six in the 37th over. Hardik Pandya, on the other hand, stuck to his short-ball strategy and trapped Livingston on the third ball. Ravindra Jadeja easily attempted six more boundary attempts.
The following catch to dismiss Jos Buttler was the most stunning. The ball bounced high on another shot while attempting to hit a six. However, Ravindra Jadeja, who came charging in, completed the catch. Jadeja took the catch at deep mid-wicket after running from deep square leg. Jos Buttler, the captain, scored 60 runs off 80 balls.
