Jos Buttler won the toss in the final India vs England ODI and invited the hosts to bat first. Unfortunately, Indian skipper Virat Kohli ended this 3-match series without winning a single toss.

The Indian cricket team won the first ODI by defending a 317-run total, but England chased down a 337-run target in the second game. Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow destroyed the Indian spin bowlers. As a result, the home team has dropped Kuldeep Yadav for the final match and included T Natarajan in his place.

Meanwhile, the visitors have also made a change to their playing XI. Mark Wood has come in for Tom Curran, who leaked 83 runs in the previous ODI.

Virat Kohli's men will be keen to get off to a good start in the powerplay overs. Although Rohit Sharma has not yet fired in this series, the team management has backed him. Even Shikhar Dhawan has got another chance after a 17-ball 4 in his last inning.
