India are favourites to win

Who will win India vs England 3rd ODI?

India won a thrilling second one-dayer at Cuttack to acquire an unassailable 2-0 lead over England in the three-match series. With the hosts having already clinched the series, the third and the final one-day international to be played on January 22 at the Eden Gardens is nothing more than a dead rubber. The match begins at 1:30 PM local time.


There is a huge toss bias at the Eden Gardens. Since the last four ODIs at this ground have been won by the side batting first, the team that wins the toss on Sunday is more likely to throw the ball over to the opposition. India batted first the last two times they recorded wins here and so we suggest betting on them if they happen to bat first again.

IND vs ENG Prediction

India Team News & Playing 11

Team News

Ajinkya Rahane might replace KL Rahul or Shikhar Dhawan at the opening position. But there was no official word on this at the time of writing.

Key Players

India's key with the bat are their present and former skippers Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni, both of whom have struck a century each in this series. Kohli has a hundred and a fifty at the Eden Gardens and we predict the run-machine to play another significant innings on Sunday. The English batters have found the left-arm spin of Ravindra Jadeja the most difficult to deal with and he will be the go-to bowler for India.

Recent Form

India are enjoying a terrific one-day form with nine wins in their last eleven matches. Seven of these have been played at home with India winning five. Their performance at the Eden Gardens however has not been good enough with four defeats in their last seven matches.

India Predicted XI

  • KL Rahul, S Dhawan, V Kohli (c), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wk), KM Jadhav, HH Pandya, RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, JJ Bumrah and B Kumar.

England Team News & Playing 11

Team News

The English team has been fined by the ICC for maintaining a slow over-rate in the second ODI. There are no injuries in the side and no changes are expected for this match.

Key Players

Jason Roy and Joe Root have hit fifties in each of the two games and both will be crucial to England's hopes with the bat. Roy has been the aggressor of the two and we predict the in-form batsman to score plenty of runs in this match as well. Chris Woakes removed the top four Indian batsmen in the last game and the conditions at the Eden Gardens will make him an even bigger threat.

Recent Form

England have lost three ODI games in a row and have faced defeats four times in their previous six games. The two games that they did win came against Bangladesh. England have played three matches at the Eden Gardens and have ended up on the losing side in all three of them.

England Predicted XI

  • JJ Roy, AD Hales, JE Root, EJG Morgan (c), BA Stokes, JC Buttler (wk), MM Ali, CR Woakes, LE Plunkett, DJ Willey and JT Ball.


­Ind vs Eng Head-to-Head in ODIs

India have won 52 and lost 38 out of the 95 matches played against England. While two of the remaining matches resulted in a tie, three ended without a result. The two teams have met each other twice at the Eden Gardens with the hosts emerging victorious on both the occasions.

­Ind vs Eng 3rd ODI Betting Odds

India's ODI performance at the Eden Gardens in recent times can be summed up as a little beyond average as three wins in their last four games is not that impressive a record for a home ground. Despite of this, the hosts still start favorites to win the third ODI at 1.55 with betfair and 1.50 with bet365.

England have shown tremendous character and improvement since they changed their jerseys from whites to blues. But the reason why they are outsiders for this game is that they ended up on the losing side even after having India at 63-4 and 25-3 in the respective games. Bet365 has them at 2.62 while betfair has them slightly higher at 2.74.

­Ind vs Eng 3rd ODI Prediction

Both teams have nothing to lose and have the freedom to fully express themselves as the series has already been decided. The Indian team will be the one brimming in confidence as they managed to pull themselves out of dicey situations both times and then went on to win.

England know that they have never won an ODI at the Eden Gardens which is something that could play on the back of their mind. Also, the English batsmen have looked uncomfortable against the spin duo of Ashwin and Jadeja all through the tour and we expect no different when the two teams meet at the Eden. This could be another tight contest but we predict the hosts to come out on top in the end.

Final Verdict: Back India to beat England in the third ODI at 1.55 with betfair and 1.50 with bet365.
