“It’s a good batting track,” says Rohit Sharma, “And we don’t think it is going to change.” Jos Buttler said that he would have batted first – so both captains happy.

Good morning! The heat is as fierce as promised today in Manchester, though a slight haze has brought relief to the swifts suddenly swirling the local streets, as England and India meet for the final ODI. This is the decider, after Jos Buttler’s team suddenly found their mojo at Lord’s.

The last time these two teams met at Old Trafford was for the Test that never was, when events were called off at the last minute, spectators already trickling into the ground, souvenir sellers outside. No chance of anyone pulling out today: the match is a sell-out and both teams will find full-throated support.

The main talking point for India, is the lack of form of Virat Kohli – who was sent a personal message of support from Babar Azam earlier this week. England? After a chaotic few white-ball days, they just want the win.

The key events:

4th plus: England 24-2 (Roy 13, Stokes 11) Siraj finds some swing. Stokes has a reckless/free walk out of the crease and strikes halfway. A much better timed shot for four follows. And a movie for four in the hands of Chahal at midwicket.

3rd plus: England 14-2 (Roy 13, Stokes) Roy still looks out of shape, throwing his bat a long ball and almost continuing to cut. A big lbw call from Shami and another attempt at an expansive Roy drive. This sleeve looks like someone is trying to get in shape.

2nd over: England 12-2 (Roy 12, Bairstow 0) How the mood changes in the space of an over! Siraj’s fantastic bowling, his face covered with a light layer of sunscreen. Bairstow’s red ball magic temporarily deserting him in the white ball, and Root done by absolute beauty.

COUNTER! Root v Rohit b Siraj 0 (England 12-2)

A beauty comes out of the field, places Root up and Rohit recovers the outside edge!

COUNTER! Bairstow c sub (Iyer) b Siraj 0 (England 12-1)

A leading edge collapses halfway!

1st over: England 12-0 (Roy 12, Bairstow 0) Roy starts at full throttle, propelling Shami through the offside for four. The second also goes for four, as Shami drifts on the legs and Roy shovels square leg deep. The vuvuzelas are crying. And it’s the best of the lot! A clip of a leg stump mid-fly, like a rower pushing grass from his oar. Finally, Shami beats the outside edge with a wobbler.

The players are out – here we are!

As the pitch fills up at Old Trafford, Ian Ward, Eoin Morgan and Kumar Sangakkara chew the fat. Do England have enough pace for Australia’s WC throws, asks Ward? Rhythm without skill and without control can cause you to lose answers to Sangakkara games. Morgan praises England’s pitch and bowling at Lord’s – it helped create a ‘cauldron feeling’.

Commentators are surprised by India’s decision to play belt ground first – but it’s wet there and India swung the white ball in the summer which could be the origin of the thought of Rohit.

Teams

India (Bumrah, exited with a back spasm, is replaced by Siraj): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna.

England (unchanged): Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Liam Livingsone, Moeen Ali, Craig Overton, David Willey, Brydon Carse, Reece Topley.

India wins the toss and will play bowl!

“It’s a good hitting track” Rohit Sharma says, “And we don’t think that’s going to change.” Jos Buttler said he would have struck first – so both captains are happy.

Lancashire fans still in shock From last night’s loss in the Blast Finals and Lanky’s loss in the Mascot Race, can be cheered by the return of Jos Buttler to his home turf.

“Congratulations Alfred, you are the champion!!” 🏆

Preexample

Good morning! The heat is as fierce as promised in Manchester today, although a light haze has relieved swifts suddenly whirling through the local streets as England and India meet for the final ODI. He’s the decider, after Jos Buttler’s team suddenly find their mojo at Lord’s.

The last time these two teams met at Old Trafford was for the Test that never was, when events were canceled at the last minute, spectators already tricked into the ground, souvenir sellers outside. No chance of anyone retiring today: the game is sold out and both teams will find strong support.

The main talking point for India is Virat Kohli’s lack of form – who received a personal message of support from Babar Azam earlier this week. England? After a chaotic few white ball days, they just want the win.
