England Batsmen Will Struggle Against Kuldeep Yadav in Tests: Brad Hogg

Kuldeep Yadav

Pacer Mark Wood today said that England should work on denying Indian wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav early success if his side are to win the third and series deciding ODI here tomorrow.

India and England go into the 3rd and final One-day worldwide of the series tied at 1-1. The hosts will look to bag the bragging rights ahead of the five-match Test series starting from August 1.

Indeed, just as Lord's, it was England's spinners who had more influence on the game at Headingley, while the patience of their batsmen against Kuldeep meant he went wicketless.

The Men in Blue began the ODI series against England on a bang.

England's white-ball specialist took three wickets, including the vital one of Virat Kohli with a delivery that he will treasure for decades.

It should not be forgotten that India are now number two in the world rankings and have Virat Kohli, a man who averages 89.33 in ODI cricket since the start of 2016, as well as two wrist-spinners who are the two leading wicket-takers in the 50-over game over the past year.

At the start of the 13over, Joe Root (3) was completely befuddled by a ripping leg break and was trapped LBW. Unusual and unorthodox, his 6 for 25 in the first match, bamboozling England's batsmen with a combination of a different, new angle, some sharp spin and googlies, suggested that things might be a struggle for the home side but in the second and third matches, Kudleep took three for 123 conceding 6.15 runs an over. After a thumping loss in the series opener at Trent Bridge, England bounced back with an improbably handsome win at Lord's on Saturday, which leaves them inseparable at 10/11 each in the pre-match stakes for the final. The chinaman bowler's first spell read 4-0-23-0 before he finished wicketless, going for 55 runs in 10 overs.

Morgan finished on 88 not out off 108 balls, including nine boundaries and a six.

Skipper Eoin Morgan then tried to nurse their inning with Ben Stokes before he became a victim of Yuzvendra Chahal in the 20th over leaving the hosts at 105/4.

"We started better against him", Morgan, the England captain, said.

"Against England you need to be at your best".

England captain Eoin Morgan: "I think it was an outstanding performance".

"They suffocated us through the middle overs really well". I think the tone was set by the bowlers early on, David Willey and Mark Wood were on the money. There was booing after every dot ball, a rare occurrence considering the huge fan base Dhoni enjoys around the cricketing globe. At Lord's, winning the toss and batting only looks good if the guys play well.

"It's two very good sides - when they're on top, they really are on top, you keep your foot on the throat and don't let opposition up", he added.
