India will aim to maintain their winning momentum when they take on England in the third One-Day International match of the five-match series at the HEC International Cricket Stadium Complex in Ranchi on Saturday.
India will look to keep the momentum going when they go into the third one-dayer against England at Ranchi on Saturday, hoping that skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's first match in his hometown will prove lucky.
After they fell short by mere nine runs in a high-scoring 326-run chase in Rajkot, India came back strongly in Kochi to level the series 1-1 with a 127-run win, their second highest margin of victory against England.
The manner in which the victory came for Dhoni's men gave a fresh lease of life to the struggling outfit and it would look to take the crucial lead going into Mohali and Dharamsala.
