11.2 WICKET! Kuldeep claims another victim, England simply cannot play him. Bairstow looks to sweep Kuldeep but it comes off his pad and bat and rolls onto his stumps. An unfortunate way to go after a strong innings.

11:48 Change of bowling. Kuldeep replaces Chahal for the first over of the second powerplay.

Over 10: England 69/0. Roy 30*, Bairstow 38*. S. Kaul 5-0-30-0.

7.2 An uppish drive over cover from Roy brings up the fifty partnership for England. It has been a strong start from the openers.

Over 7: England 49/0. Roy 18*, Bairstow 30*. H. Pandya 2-0-21-0.

Over 6: England 32/0. Roy 10*, Bairstow 21*. S. Kaul 3-0-14-0.

5.5 Half an appeal for LBW as Roy comes down the track and gets hit on the pad. Looked a bit high and probably missing off-stump.

5.1 A tidy punch through mid-wicket brings Roy and England three runs.

11:22 Pandya beat the bat a few times in that over and looked more threatening than Umesh did.

Over 5: England 27/0. Roy 7*, Bairstow 20*. H. Pandya 1-0-4-0.

4.5 Bairstow flicks a length ball over the leg-side for a couple. His timing was off there and almost was a half chance.

11:17 Change of bowling. Hardik Pandya replacing Umesh Yadav. He has a cover sweeper and fine leg as his two men out.

Over 4: England 23/0. Roy 6*, Bairstow 17*. S. Kaul 2-0-10-0.

11:16 Dhoni and Kohli having a chat in the middle of the over and Kohli drops from a catching cover to a regulation one.

Over 3: England 21/0. Roy 5*, Bairstow 16*. U. Yadav 2-0-13-0.

1.2 A rare mis-field from India allows Bairstow to get off the mark with a four through the cover region.

11:03 Siddarth Kaul to share the new ball with Umesh. Kaul is running in from the Pavilion End, Bairstow on strike.

Over 1: England 4/0. Roy 4*, Bairstow 0*. U. Yadav 1-0-4-0. 

0.3 Yadav gets an edge, but it doesn’t carry to Dhoni. It bounces just before it hits his gloves.

0.1 First ball, first boundary. Roy puts a straight ball away for four through square leg.

10:58 Umesh Yadav to open the bowling from the Nursery Ground end. Roy to take strike.

10:57 The umpires walk out, followed by India who are greeted with a loud cheer. Roy and Bairstow follow them to the middle. It’s game time.

10:52 If India win this series 3-0 they will return to the top of the ODI rankings. Can England stop this happening today? Just ten minutes to go before the first ball.

10:48 Before the match starts, have you ever considered becoming a cricket writer? We are on the lookout for new writers and offer great chances of media accreditation and remuneration. Send an email to arjun.b@btinternet.com for more details.

10:43 The starting XIs. England: Roy, Bairstow, Root, Morgan (C), Stokes, Buttler (WK), Ali, Willey, Rashid, Plunkett, Wood. India: R. Sharma, Dhawan, Kohli (C), Rahul, Raina, Dhoni (WK), H. Pandya, Kaul, K. Yadav, U. Yadav, Chahal

10:37 No team changes, Bhuvneshwar Kumar still not ready to go and Kuldeep Yadav still in India’s eleven. If Joe Root fails again today, perhaps his position in England’s top order may come under threat.

10:34 Toss time! Eoin Morgan wins the toss and elects to bat. A brave call given the outcome of Thursday’s match and I am sure Virat Kohli will not mind chasing.

10:30 Eoin Morgan is out in the middle for the toss, Virat Kohli is yet to join him.

10:25 Still quite a few empty seats in the ground, but they are expected to fill up soon. Tickets were sold out early and have been selling for about £250 on exchange websites. Some have called this match the showpiece event of India’s tour of England. The toss is five minutes away.

10:15 Is it worth India resting Kuldeep Yadav? They may consider hiding him away for either the Test series or the 2019 World Cup. It would be unwise for them to give England a lot of practise of playing him, when he could remain a surprise mystery spinner.

10:12 Not long until the toss, both teams will look to chase most likely. What changes would you make to the England/India teams?

10:06 Both teams are out training and having a bowl on the practise wickets. It looks as if Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit for India as he was spotted warming up. The India team are currently engaged in a full-squad huddle. It should be a thrilling game.
