Match Summary

The 3rd ODI between India and England was nothing like a dead rubber. Both teams played to win, made only a few changes in personnel in the name of experimentation and served up a thriller at one of the iconic cricket grounds in the world, the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

India brought in Ajinkya Rahane for Shikhar Dhawan, while England replaced the injured Alex Hales with Sam Billings and brought in Jonny Bairstow for Joe Root.

In the end, India lost the Kolkata ODI by only five runs and failed to whitewash England, who held their nerve to get off the mark in India after seven matches (five Tests and two ODIs). Kedar Jadhav very nearly broke England’s hearts again, as his 75-ball 90 kept India on course for a thrilling victory which would have been far sweeter than the win in Pune. India were, as you can see in the scorecard, 173/5 in the 32nd over, with MS Dhoni being dismissed and the incoming of Pandya, and India needing a further 149 runs for victory.

But the Jadhav-Pandya stand didn’t show any nerves whatsoever and rode their luck to keep the game in the balance. England, though, didn’t help themselves by not being consistent with their lines and lengths and allowing Jadhav and Pandya a free swing of their bats.

Mind you, there was no Kohli or Dhoni here, and the pitch was lively and provided plenty of incentives for good bowling, throughout the 100 overs, which is why this victory, if India had gotten over the line, would have been sweeter. Jadhav was playing a lone hand after Pandya was dismissed for a 43-ball 56, as he didn’t take singles while he had Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar with him. Needing 16 off the last over, Jadhav hit a six and a four off the first two deliveries to bring the equation down to six required off four. But this is where Chris Woakes and England showed character and held their nerve to not concede any more runs, to win the 3rd ODI by five runs.

Earlier in the day, Kohli won the toss and chose to bowl first on a newly-laid Eden Gardens pitch that assisted the fast bowlers, thanks to the conspicuous grass covering.

Jason Roy (65) provided England a good start once again and Sam Billings played a good hand, too, albeit he lacked rhythm. After scoring his third half-century in the series, Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Roy for the third straight time and in identical fashion to how he scalped the England opener in Cuttack.

England’s innings had sizeable partnerships throughout, but arguably the most important one was that between Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, who, by way of their 73-run stand for the seventh wicket, helped England reach 321/8.

The marquee difference between the 3rd ODI and the first and second one-dayers, was England’s ability to keep getting wickets after they had dismissed the Indian openers cheaply. In Pune and Cuttack, despite having India at 63/4 and 25/3 respectively, their bowlers could not make further inroads into the Indian batting line-up, which, however, thrived when they were pushed into tight corners. In Kolkata, though, the English bowlers took wickets at regular intervals and we can say that they exploited the prevalent conditions well.

The Kolkata ODI capped off what had been a high-scoring and hugely entertaining three-ODI series, which saw a whopping 2090 runs be scored combinedly by India and England.
