Jason Roy and Jos Buttler didn’t have great outings in the T20Is and will be looking to make amends.
Bairstow will slot in right back with Jason Roy at the top of the order, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali will provide the firepower in the England middle order. Sam Curran and David Willey are also very capable all-rounder. Reece Topley had a wonderful outing in the T20 series and is ready for the ODIs.
Reece Topley went on to win the man of the match award in the third T20. Moreover, he picked up three wickets by giving away 22 runs in four overs.
On the Other Side,
Shikhar Dhawan will be back in Blue after a long time. this is the only format in which he’s still a regular for India and would want to keep his place till the next World Cup.
Rohit will hope to create more happy memories here, as will his likely opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, who in five ODIs at this venue has scored 443 runs at an average of 110.75, with three centuries and a fifty.
Hardik Pandya last played an ODI nearly a year ago, and India will keep a close eye on how he manages his workload in the format.
Suryakumar Yadav’s sensational century in the third T20I could get him the nod over Shreyas Iyer.
Bumrah is your tried and tested player who you go with when you have the single minded focus of winning. Arshdeep Singh impressed on his India debut and is likely to get another game. Yuzvendra Chahal will be India’s leading spinner.
