Last ball drama helps England to escape whitewash

Finally, England gets a victory against India. Last over thriller was the best part of today’s match. India lost the match after fighting a lot. This game was not that important to both team because the main result of this series was made in the 2nd Paytm ODI match. On that game, India showed an amazing team combination to win the match.

Two senior campaigners changed the result of the match and made a huge total. England lost that match and India won the PayTm ODI series. But in the third game, England cricket team came back with their full energy. England’s enormous total worked well against India. To win the match, India had to cross 321 runs. From the very beginning of the last ODI match, English batsmen started playing very well, and that was the main plus point for them to have a mammoth total on the scoreboard.

Both openers of England were the leading architects of their innings. Their partnership was just changing the momentum. Jason Roy scored 65 from 56 balls and Sam Billings scored 35 from 58 balls. Jusprit Bumrah was the man who became successful to break their partnership. Bumrah made Billing fool and took his wicket. After that Bairstow joined to build up a partnership.

But after adding few runs on the scoreboard, that partnership didn’t go on. Jason Roy got bowled by Ravindra Jadeja. Then the captain took the responsibility and became successful to build up the partnership with Bairstow. When team’s score was 194, Eoin Morgan gave away his wicket. He scored 43 from 44 balls. Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes played the most important role to give a big target to India.

Stokes added 57 runs on the scoreboard, and Woakes added 34 runs. India couldn’t show anything special at the beginning of the match. They lost their two valuable wickets early. Ajinka Rahane and KL Rahul came back to the pavilion within 37 runs. Captain Kohli scored 55 runs after playing 63 balls. Once again K Jadhav was going to get a century but his innings stopped at 90 runs, and his team lost the match by five runs.
