NASSER HUSSAIN: England pass their India test with flying colours

England's Jos Buttler celebrates after Adil Rashid bowls Virat Kohli for 71. While wicketkeeper and senior batsman MS Dhoni scored 42 runs off 66 balls with help of 4 boundaries.

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was spotted taking the match ball from the umpires while heading towards the dressing room which has now led the viewers believe that the 37-year-old is set to announce his retirement from global cricket.

David Willey and Rashid Khan starred with the ball, picking up three wickets apiece.

It was also the first time since November 2014 against Sri Lanka, that Kohli got out to spinners in three consecutive ODI innings.

Dhawan was run out for 44 by a brilliant piece of fielding from Ben Stokes and thereafter India lost wickets at regular intervals. Can the Men in Blue maintain this run?

WICKET! David Willey removes Rohit Sharma for just two runs as Mark Wood takes a catch at deep square leg.

But it could be that England's problem, when Alex Hales is fit, is who to leave out because there really isn't anyone in their best 12 who deserves to be on the sidelines. Another change for India is that Dinesh Karthik comes in for KL Rahul. "So they need a good player at four and five, and then if they think MS Dhoni is the way forward, him at six and Pandya at seven". Suresh Raina (46 runs), Virat Kohli (45) and Shikhar Dhawan all put up a fighting effort, but went in vain.

They easily handled the threat of India spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who combined for 20 overs, conceded 96 overs, and no wickets. The soundest strategy may be to let him be until the 2019 World Cup is over since he has become such a crucial weapon for Morgan.

Following the ODI decider, the teams head for a two-week break after which they return on August 1 to play the first of the five Tests.

Sourav Ganguly has criticized the Indian team's selection policy and the top-heavy nature of the batting line-up during the post-match analysis of the third ODI which England won comfortably by 8 wickets on Tuesday.

The match is scheduled to start at 5 PM IST. When the other opener James Vince was run out for 27 in the 10th over, Morgan joined Root and the pair set about stripping confidence from the Indians.

The match will be broadcast on SonySIX, SonySIX HD, Sony Ten 3 SD and HD.
