Ratings: Kohli and Buttler top ODI charts

Having clinched the three-match T20I series against England 2-1, the Men in Blue will look to carry their winning momentum into the three-match ODI series.

With both sides going into the series with similar squads from that in the T20Is, not many changes are expected. All eyes though will be on Rohit Sharma after his match-winning hundred in the final match, which helped India win the series.

Sharma heads into the opener averaging 57.95 in his last 22 innings, having amassed 1159 runs in the process. The 31-year-old opener’s numbers are bettered only by skipper Virat Kohli, who’ll be feeling confident as usual, having scored 1331 runs in his last 19 innings at an incredible average of 95.07.

The bowling onus will be on Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the absence of the injured Jasprit Bumrah. It will also be interesting to see how Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav fare against a deep batting England side, who’ll look to dominate.

England, meanwhile, will be pinning their hopes on Jos Buttler, who has been in sensational form recently. The hard-hitting wicketkeeper scored a match-winning century against Australia in the final game of their recent 5-0 whitewash of Australia and has already given the Indian bowling unit a glimpse of what he’s capable of in the T20I series

England’s bowling will need the help of their spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali. Rashid will be confident after picking up his 100th ODI wicket recently against Australia but he will have his work cut against a strong Indian batting lineup.
