We are done with all the pre-match formalities and we are in all readiness for the decider as the England team led by Jos Buttler make their way to the middle. They are followed by the two dashing openers for India, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. To start with the ball, England have Sam Curran who is ready to bowl. Here he starts his run-up and it's game time...
Rishabh Pant is down for a quick chat and he says that he played his first series at home and he is happy with his performance. He also says that he has been practising but was not getting the results and now he has proven his game. He also says that the mindset is to score runs but in T20Is there is not much time to adjust. He also says that he just focuses on playing the game and just looks to contribute to the team's cause

Virat Kohli says that they would have bowled first. Adds that this looks a good wicket and it looks hard. States that they would look to post a good score and then look to bowl better. Tells that they have performed well when their backs are against the well. Says that they have made comebacks in the Tests as well as the T20Is. Informs that T Natarajan replaces Kuldeep Yadav.
England skipper, Jos Buttler says that it looks like a very good wicket so they will bowl first. He says that the wicket looks similar to the wicket the other day. He says that he is very proud of the performance they displayed in the last game and with this being the series decider, they would look to play the same brand of cricket that they have played. Mentions that Mark Wood comes in for Tom Curran.
Toss - Up goes the coin and it lands in favour of England. They have elected to field.
Pitch report - VVS Laxman from the Studio does the pitch report. He says that there is a tinge of grass on this wicket and there will be plenty of runs on offer and the batters can play through the line on this pitch. Adds that dew might play a role later on in the game so the captain, winning the toss, should look to bowl first.
This is the second time during England's tour of India that a series has gone into the decider. Do you remember India's series' thumping win in the 5th and final T20I to claim the series? A similar kind of game is expected in this one too. On that note, hello and welcome to the 3rd and final ODI between England and India. This is also the last game of the tour. England romped back into the series with a romping win in the second ODI to set up a mouth-watering decider. They chased down a mammoth total in the last game and the architects of that chase were Jonny Bairstow who struck a blistering ton and Ben Stokes who played a counterattacking inning of 99. We expect another high octane clash as India look to sort their bowling issues and bounce back stronger. While England will be boosted by this renewed vigour and would look to end the tour with a series win. Who will lift the trophy? Join us for the action but before that, we wait for the toss and team updates.
