Shikhar Dhawan is out caught behind off the bowling of James Anderson in the first over of the match once again. Dhawan went for an drive outside his off stump and it fell to wicket-keeper Jos Buttler standing behind the wicket. This is Dhawan’s second failure in as many matches as he was dismissed cheaply against Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) as well.

Dhawan opened the batting with Ajinkya Rahane and in a surprise move Ambati Rayudu had walked in at number three. Rayudu has replaced Rohit Sharma in this game, who is out due to an injury. Stuart Binny too plays his first game of the tour as he replaces Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing XI.

It;s a major boost for James Anderson as he comes into the team for Chris Jordan. Anderson had missed the previous ODI against Australia due to injury. Skipper Eoin Morgan would hope that his side can pick up a few more quick wickets in the opening overs and put pressure on the Indian middle-order.
