IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction 3rd ODI, England tour of India, 2021

IND vs ENG Dream11 PredictionProbable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of the 3rd ODI match at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.


After a brilliant performance in the first match, India was completely outplayed by the position and lost the second match by six wickets even after posting a massive total of 336 runs.

Rohit Sharma has been silent with the bat so far in this series and is yet to play a big inning, whereas Shikhar Dhawan, after a brilliant performance in the first match, got out early in the last game. Virat Kohli has been in perfect form as he scored two back-to-back fifties but is yet to score a century.

KL Rahul is back in form with a fifty and a hundred this series, and Pant, who was playing the first match of the series, batted brilliantly, scoring a fifty. Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya also have been playing quick innings in the lower middle-order.

The bowling attack, which made a good comeback in the first match, failed to do so in the last game. Prasidh Krishna has picked up wickets consistently but has been very expensive, and Shardul went wicketless in the previous match. Only Bhuvi has been bowling economically and also picking up wickets.

The spin department was very expensive as Kuldeep and Krunal conceded a lot of runs and could not pick up wickets so far in this series. India would like to make some changes in the team and win the series on Sunday.


England made a strong comeback into the series by winning the last match comfortably by 6 wickets chasing such a big total. They have shown their batting strength that they can chase any amount of runs.

Jason Roy has finally managed to score a fifty after getting out so many times in the ’40s. Jonny Bairstow has been brilliant this series as he scored his hundred in the last match, which he had missed in the first ODI. 

After getting out early in the 1st match, Ben Stokes was just brutal in the second match as he scored 99 runs from just 52 balls smashing all the bowlers. Dawid Malan was given a chance to play in place of Morgan, and he batted decently, and Livingstone also batted well in the last match.

Jos Buttler has been made captain, but he has struggled in this series to score runs, but he is a perfect finisher. Moeen Ali and Sam Curran haven’t got much chance with the bat but have been performing decently with the ball.

The bowling department has not been at par with batting as most of their bowlers are inexperienced. Tom Curran has managed to pick up wickets but has been very expensive in his recent matches, and Reece Topley, who replaced Mark Wood bowled decently. Adil Rashid has also shown consistency in picking up wickets.

After losing the Test and T20I series, England would be hoping to win the ODI series at least, which will boost the confidence of players.
