The three match ODI series 2022 preview
Team India will look to continue its form of T20Is going into the ODI series. As far as England are concerned, they will feel confident after winning the last T20I.
England is coming into this ODI series with very good form. They haven’t lost an ODI series at home for a while now.
They have changed their approach of playing ODI cricket since the elimination from the quarter-finals of the ICC WC 2015. (India vs England)
England bat deep and bat hard and always plays with a positive approach. They look to score runs quickly and they have players who can do the job for them. Something India must be aware of.
They are the World Champions for a reason. Now, with E Morgan retired from international cricket, J Buttler has been given a responsibility to lead this England side.
J Bairstow and B Stokes are also back in the mix in ODI after more than a year. England will miss the services of its main bowlers like C Woakes, J Archer, and M Wood in this series. Their bowling will be tested in the absence of some of the big names. England also didn’t have A Rashid, their premium spinner in this series.
Coming to India, they announced a strong squad for the ODI series with all the big players available for the selection. (India vs England)
India will look to finish the series on a high.
Players to look for
The form he is in, India will vary from that. He is in form of his life and can give a flying start to England at the top.
Captain J Buttler hasn’t scored according to his standard in the three-match T20I series. He will look to redeem himself in the ODI series.
Root has been scoring consistently. And along with test cricket, this format also suits him as he scored so many runs at the top.
The series s very important for V Kohli for his future. He is struggling with his form for a while now.
In that case, the eyes will be on him on how he performs.
Captain R Sharma himself is struggling to get the runs. He missed a few crucial series recently due to injuries and COVID. He will look to get into the runs again in this series.
The main bowler in the team and the leader of the pack. J Bumrah will be the one to look for in this series.
