Alex Hales was looking good for England against India in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. After a nervous start, England started speeding things up, with Hales unfurling a flurry of boundaries against Mohammed Shami and Mohit Sharma. Mohit went off the field for a while as well, being replaced by Sanju Samson.
Earlier, India won the toss and asked England to bat in what could be a series-levelling match for England if they win. Steven Finn got his first game of the India-England series when he replaced the wayward Chris Jordan. For India, Rohit Sharma’s injury forced them to make a change, as Ambati Rayudu was drafted into the side. Ajinkya Rahane was slated to open the innings in Rohit’s absence.
