The heart of India’s 2018 summer tour of England is yet to come, with a grueling, five-test series — only the second time in almost 60 years that India has played a five-match Test series, as The Guardian recounts — but the limited-overs section of the tour will come to what promises to be a thrilling close on Tuesday when the third and deciding match of the two teams’ one-day international series will live stream from Headingley.
After suffering a one-sided walloping in the first ODI, England bounced back on Saturday behind a cool century from Joe Root and a four-wicket haul claimed by Liam Plunkett to inflict and 86-run, series-leveling defeat on their guests, as CricInfo records. Root, in fact, reached 113 off of only 116 balls — including eight boundaries and a six — while Captain Eoin Morgan and number eight batsman David Willey each notched half-centuries.
India’s middle order futility proved the difference in the match, as legendary wicketkeeper M.S. Dhoni found himself on the receiving end of boos for what India Today claimed was the first time in his illustrious career after a lackluster 37 off of 59 with just two boundaries. The largely Indian crowd at Lord’s showed Dhoni their lack of appreciation despite that fact that reached the landmark 10,000-run plateau in ODI play, only the fourth Indian cricket to reach such rarefied heights.

First ball is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. British Summer Time on Tuesday, July 17, at the revered Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds, England.

Root’s century was his 12th in ODI matches, equalling an England record held by Marcus Trescothick, CricInfo reported.
England will take confidence from the fact that they reached the young spin sensation Kuldeep Yadav for 68 runs, despite losing four wickets to the 23-year-old, and are expected to attack him with even greater determination as they attempt to take the series decider and solidify their world top ODI ranking in their final home ODI before 2019, which brings the cricket World Cup to England.
