The live cricket streaming of the third and final ODI between India and England at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata is available on Hotstar, while the live cricket telecast of the contest is available on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD. The commentary in Hindi for the third ODI between India and England will be there on Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD. While the Indian cricket team will be looking to make it a clean sweep over the dangerous England in the third game, the visitors will be keen to make amends and try and go past the finish line for at least once.

In the last two ODIs, England have done everything possible within their means to clinch a victory, but India have found the better of them. In the first game at Pune, England batted first and posted a 351-run target versus India, which happened to be their highest total against this opponent. However, India cruised past their target by 3 wickets. In the second game of the series England bettered their record, reaching 368 for 8 but falling narrowly short of India s target of 382 runs. England will hope for better returns in the final game at Kolkata, which is expected to be yet another run-fest between the two sides. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 3rd ODI at Kolkata

England will be without the services of their star opener Alex Hales, who has suffered a broken hand and has flown home. He might be requiring a surgery as well, and Hales will be missing the three-match T20I series as well. England have done extremely well so far in this series, playing aggressive cricket but India have managed to get the better of them on both the occasion.

For India, everything seems to be falling in the right places barring their opening stands. In both the games so far they have lost their top order for cheap, which fortunately for them has not resulted in any unfavourable result. Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul have failed to provide strong stands at the top, which is something which England have been able to pull off.
