Virat Kohli will once again be the cynosure at Old Trafford on a Sunday morning when India and England face off in the series-deciding third and final ODI. After being drubbed by 10 wickets in the first game, England levelled the series with a dominating show in the second. (More Cricket News)

The team under Rohit Sharma put up an ultra-aggressive batting show during their 2-1 T20 series win but the way it chased a below-par target of 247 in the second ODI has left a lot to be desired.
To add to that, Virat Kohli's endless saga of failures has only compounded the problems. The approach of going for leather from the word ‘go’ worked wonderfully in T20s and there is no reason that it can't work in the 50-over format which many teams see as an extension of two T20 innings.
While Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan starred with the bat in the first ODI, their failure in the second along with the rest of the line-up has only put questions up for asking. But India won't mind as long as these formidable men are being kept under tight leash but the visitors would have to alter their playbook.
And it will be a challenge in a morning ODI at the Old Trafford where the ball moves appreciably, and India have their 2019 World Cup semifinal defeat in mind at this venue.
Coming to Kohli, possibly he would be looking forward for this more than a month-long break after this game as he is expected to get back to the nets and to the drawing board to seek a solution to his problem of front-foot press and jabbing and poking at deliveries moving away from length.
The weakness is well documented but now the solution is needed as far as white-ball game is concerned. On the other hand, England who were destroyed by Jasprit Bumrah’s 6/19 in the first ODI, Reece Topley 6/24 in the second won England big against the visitors.
Also, the likes of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Dawid Willey getting runs under their belts will give a sigh of relief for England captain Jos Buttler.
