Preview : India Vs England Ranchi One-Day
It will be a big day for Ranchi as their homeboy Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead Team India at his home ground. The match is between India and England but the spotlight will be on one man “Dhoni”. He is playing first one day match at his home ground and he will definitely try the best at his level to win the match. This will be first one-day international match at JSCA(Jharkhand State Cricket Association) cricket ground Ranchi as well.
According to pitch curators Basu Dev “It’s sporting and typical batting friendly pitch so definitely we will see high scoring match with an average of 7-8 runs per over. You can expect 340-350 runs at least.” I’m not stick with 350 but I think India will easily cross the figure of 310(Let me make a guess….India will score anything between 310-318…let’s see if my prediction goes right).
India and England; both teams are at equal stage with 1 win and 1 loss so definitely both team will try to change the figure. I don’t have much expectations from Jadeja(his performance was nothing but co-incident in 2nd ODI) but definitely Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shami Ahmed will perform well. Kohli and Raina could play key role in the match. No wonder if we see Pujara in playing eleven.
