India vs England 3rd ODI Live Streaming

A sigh of relief for the Indian fans as team India bounced back in the ODI series before it could have been too late. Series is levelled 1-1 after a thumping win over England in the 2nd ODI. Now we move on to Dhoni's home ground Ranchi where he will play for the first time. We can easily expect a fanfare of Dhoni in the stadium. Above all he is the most inform batsmen in the team and hence Ranchi crowd would expect a good knock from him.

India would like to capitalise on the big win they registered in the second ODI. We saw a good batting performance (this time not from the openers) from the middle order and special knocks from Raina, Dhoni and Jadeja. Complementing it we saw brilliant bowling performance which lead India to a big win.

Virat Kohli scored 37 but that could be a signal of his return to form. And if he strikes form he is a very dangerous batsmen for any opposition. Biggest threat for England bowlers is ofcourse Dhoni. As described by Captain Cook "Dhoni is the best batsmen in death overs". If someone doubts his capability, here are some stats during the days when Indian cricket has dipped in performance after World Cup - Dhoni has scored at a strike rate of 92 with an average of 83! Not to forget he is a lower middle order batsmen and he has scored 11 fifty plus scores in 27 innings he played. That is phenomenal.

On the bowling side, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is doing pretty well in patches. Ishant Sharma recently failed miserably but we can't write off his importance. Dinda looks good in T20 and his worth in ODIs is still a question. But he bowls good bouncers and slow deliveries. 

England is craving for an ODI series win in India since 28 years. Winning the first ODI gave them great hopes but losing the second one makes things tougher for them. With series leveled 1-1 it is difficult to pick favourites for this match. But considering Dhoni's form and his home ground support, we can see team India having a better chance to win here at Ranchi.
