A bit of rain followed by a half decent performance isn’t nearly enough to cover up India’s problems, but perhaps it’s something to build on. It may be worth keeping in mind that the visitors more than regressed back to square one after their last victory here in England, going on to receive two of their biggest hammerings to date.
England open the third ODI as narrow favorites to bounce back as they’re priced at 1.91 with YouWin. Visitors India are 2.10 with Bet365 if you think they’ll back up their recent performance.
India secured their big victory with the help of the Duckworth-Lewis method last time out, but please do not be pulled by the outcome. As well as India did in parts, England did poorly. It wasn’t the best performance from the hosts.
For once MS Dhoni set an example with the bat, whilst Reina finally found some form as he hit a ton. Dhoni’s order delivered for once. Things all fell in to place last tme out, which was going to happen sooner or later. India began the first series like a house on fire, before playing the rest of it like a paper bag in a bath.
Another key factor to consider is the injury of Rohit Sharma. As well as obviously losing a player with serious ability, I’m sure it’ll be a huge mental blow also. The Indians may well fell that once again things are conspiring against them just as they have a chance to turn the corner.
Whilst Sharma was dangerous with the bat, equally dangerous was Ravi Jadeja with the ball. He was perhaps the real difference in the second ODI. England had no answers to his bowling on the day.
The standout performer for England is quiet obvious. Bowling aside, England don’t have much to build on at the moment apart from the showings of Alex Hale. If Hale can slog his way to another fine 100, England have a lot to build on during the third ODI.
Most previews out there are putting a more positive spin on India’s chances, but I think I agree with the direction of the bookmakers odds on this occasion. There isn’t a book out there that isn’t seeing consistent money on the home side. There’s no real reasons to rely on either of them on Saturday, but I trust India away far less than I trust England at home.
So Back England at 1.91 with Youwin.
