Ind vs Eng: What to expect from Ranchi ODI
+9
New Delhi: After bouncing back to level the series 1-1 against England, Team India will be full of confidence as they are set to clash with the visitors at Ranchi on Saturday. All eyes will be on the Indian skipper MS Dhoni as he is expected to deliver in his hometown.
 
 
Also, Indian bowling – being questioned over the past – came out exceptionally well as England was bowled out for a shambolic 158 runs. The youngsters Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shami Ahmed came good for the home team as the visitors struggled in their chase for 286 runs.
 
But, if India intends to win at Ranchi and take the lead in the ODI series against England, it will have to be MS Dhoni who can turn the things around for the hosts. The Indian skipper, impassioned not just with bat but just as strikingly in every aspect of his captaincy, ensured order in favour of the hosts during Kochi ODI.
 
After failing to manage India’s run-chase during Rajkot ODI, Dhoni worked on his approach towards the game and ensured that things would turn out to be different at Kochi.
 
Since, the pitch at JSCA international cricket stadium in Ranchi has been boasted to be a batting paradise; it will be a good opportunity for the Indian batsmen to strike back to form.
 
Here’s what Ranchi ODI has in store for the cricket fanatics:

Winning the toss will be crucial:
 
Since, the Ranchi wicket has been boasted to be flat and batting-friendly, it will be important for the Indian skipper MS Dhoni to win the toss during the third ODI. The local curator had earlier revealed that the team batting first is expected to score over 350 runs.
 
Team India, with the composition of adequate batting maestros, should bat first to post a mammoth total for the English visitors. This will give India a psychological advantage as England, while chasing over 6-7 runs per over, will be under pressure.
 
Posting a mammoth total after winning the toss will also give confidence to the Indian bowlers against the explosive English batsmen.
