8:08 PM IST: Brilliant over by Mark wood considering the stage of the game. MS Dhoni now has huge responsibility on his shoulders.
8:03 PM IST: Vital partnership this between Dhoni and Bhuneshwar they need to bat as deep as possible. Dhoni slowly and steadily finding a little bit of touch.
7:56 PM IST: 32 off 56 balls - This has been an uncomfortable outing for MS Dhoni. He is not timing the ball well and this can lead to more criticism of his playing style. But, finally, he gets a boundary and some relief for the former skipper. IND 206/6

7:20 PM IST Moeen bowls another over quickly, concedes just five and India have now reached 173/5 after 34 overs.

6:42 PM IST: Out!!! Dinesh Karthik who was looking superb is gone for 21. He is bowled by Adil Rashid. MS Dhoni is the new man him.
6:37 PM IST: Adil Rashid is bowling with some semblance of control but from the other end it’s leaking runs. Not that India are complaining.
6:32 PM IST: Kohli is nearing yet another fifty! Where will India be without him. India need their captain to score another ton. Plunkett meanwhile is being plundered. One bad ball per over from him.
6:27 PM IST: Two reactively quiet overs by Rashid and Plunkett as England look to put brakes back on India. India will be looking for a total of close to 300 to put pressure on this very good battling line-up.

6:08 PM IST: Moeen Ali bowls a relatively tight over, four come of it. India have picked up the pace nicely here.
6:04 PM IST: Fifty partnership comes up between Kohli and Shikha. Shikhar is finally getting into his groove as he thumps Stokes to a boundary over deep mid-wicket.
5:58 PM IST: We have our first look at spin as Moeen Ali comes into the attack. Indian batsmen look far more comfortable and milk him for singles comfortably in the over.
5:55 PM IST: Things have become a little easier since Liam Plunkett came into the attack. Shikhar drives him for three consecutive boundaries in the over. Fifty comes up for India in the 13th over. IND 55/1 after 13
5:46 PM IST: Change of bowling and Liam Plunkett comes into the attack and immediately things look easier. Shikhar drives him past cover for a nice boundary.
5:41 PM IST: End of the first powerplay and India re 32/1. Willey was flicked for a boundary in that over by Kohli but the rest of the over was impeccable. Things can only get easier from here. one would hope so anyways.
5:37 PM IST: Good effort by Mark wood continues, he goes for just two in the over and Shikhar has to be vigilant to ward of thunderbolts that are coming his way.
5:33 PM IST: Superb spell from David Willey continues, he has Kohli on edge. Eight overs gone and India have yet to break free.
5:30 PM IST: Kohli has come after the loss of Sharma and has looked good, but England bowlers too have been building pressure and runs are not easy to come by. India will have to work hard for whatever they get.
5:25 PM IST: OUT!!!! Rohit Sharma departs for 2. He tries to flick Willey over deep square leg but can’t clear the boundary and Mark wood takes a routine catch. IND 13/1
5:20 PM IST: Mark Wood backs Willey up superbly, he bowls his second maiden of the innings and India are fininding runs hard to come by. Typically the pitch gets easier to bat on.
5:16 PM IST: Willey pulls back things a little, he concedes just two of the over. He could have had a wicket too. Shikhar played and missed to a ball he could have left.
5:12 PM IST: TWO FOURS! Dhawan finally turns on the style in this over, creaming two boundaries at the beginning and end of the over, respectively. India are 11/0 after 3 overs.
5:08 PM IST: David Willey’s first over of the game is also good one, conceding just three runs from it. India are 3/0 after 2 overs.
5:04 PM IST: Mark Wood’s first over of the game is a maiden. Good start this for England.
5:00 PM IST: And the match is underway at Headingley!
4:55 PM IST: Here’s a stat Indian fans will like - Shikhar Dhawan needs 68 runs more to reach 1000 runs in ODIs at England. Can he get to that landmark today? We will find out in a few minutes.
4:50 PM IST: Here’s a couple of interesting stats for you - firstly, the average score at this ground over the last 5 years is 298. Secondly, England have won their last four consecutive matches at Headingley, including one against India themselves in 2014.
4:45 PM IST: Pitch reports suggest the strip at Headingley has a bit of grass on it but it will likely turn and grip later on in the match. That’s an assessment Virat Kohli seemingly agrees with, as he stated at the toss that he wanted to bat first as he expects the spinners to come into play in the second innings. But Eoin Morgan reckons the pitch will remain a good one for the duration of the game.
4:40 PM IST: India make three changes to the starting line up then. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur and Dinesh Karthik come in for Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav and KL Rahul respectively. England make just one change with James Vince coming in for Jason Roy.
4:35 PM IST: England XI: Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (w), Moeen Ali, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood.
India XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal.
4:33 PM IST: England win toss, choose to field vs. India in the final ODI at Headingly.
4:20 PM IST: Kuldeep Yadav has been England’s tormentor-in-chief so far in the tour. With only 10 minutes to go until the toss, you can kill time by clicking here and reading what Mark Wood feels the hosts must do to nullify the Chinaman bowler.
4:10 PM IST: The series is being used by both sides to prepare for the 2019 World Cup, but a series win would be a major boost for both sides regardless of the long-term approach being taken by both captains.
4:00 PM IST: Hello and welcome to live coverage of the third and final ODI between India and England!
The Men in Blue have been on a high-flying streak in bilateral ODI cricket. Going as far back as January 2016, when they last lost 4-1 in Australia, India have won every bilateral ODI series since, beating Zimbabwe, New Zealand (twice), England, West Indies, Sri Lanka (twice), Australia and South Africa, both home and away.
It is also another opportunity to ascertain their ODI supremacy over England, for India haven’t lost a bilateral contest to this opposition since 2011. Since that 3-0 loss here seven years ago, India have enjoyed the upper-hand, winning 10 out of 17 matches.
Considering England’s ascendancy in white-ball cricket since 2015, the equation has balanced out over the last two encounters. India won the closely-fought home series 2-1 in January 2017, and now the current contest will finish with the same score-line, either way.
