England's Joe Root To Make Another Half Century Against India

India have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match One Day International Series with England and the hosts are odds-on to complete a whitewash in this dead rubber at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Sunday...

  • India have won 5 and lost 5 of their past 10 one day internationals at Eden Gardens
  • England have lost 21 of their past 25 ODI's to the hosts in India - Won 3, Tied 1
  • MS Dhoni averages 57.13 in ODI cricket played against England in India

Tips Joe Root to score 50+    Best Bet @ 11 / 8  

Home Advantage

Virat Kohli's side produced a come-from-behind performance to win the first ODI by three wickets and they then broke English hearts to win the second ODI by 15 runs at Cuttack on Thursday, thus securing the series.

The victory at Cuttack means India have now won 21 of their last 25 one day internationals on home soil against England and it is no surprise to see that they are 1/2 favourites for Sunday (Betfred).

The one comfort for England is that they pushed India close in both games of this series but their inadequate bowling attack affords the Indian batsmen too many opportunities to score freely and the hosts have taken full advantage.
Match Odds:

Veteran Quality

Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni laid the platform for India at Cuttack as they each helped themselves to centuries and Dhoni will be relishing the chance to play at Eden Gardens, where he averages 90.57 with the bat in all formats of international cricket.

Furthermore, Dhoni averages 46.66 in ODI's against England and that average inflates to 57.13 when only considering matches played in India. With that in mind, Dhoni is 7/1 to be top India batsman on Sunday (Coral) and he could be primed to produce another rescue act.

Golden Root

As for England, they have won just three of their past 25 one day international matches against the hosts in India but one man who does thrive is Joe Root as he averages 59 with the bat in ODI cricket played there. Root has scored three fifties in six ODI matches in India and he is 11/8 to score a fifty this weekend (Ladbrokes).

Root is 3/1 to be his team's top batsman (Coral) but it is worth noting that he has yet to score a 50-over hundred in India as he has continually failed to make the most of good starts, with England hoping that he can make a match-winning contribution in this dead rubber in Kolkata.
