After winning the toss in the final ODI of the series, Indian captain Virat Kohli undoubtedly decided to bowl first keeping in mind the dew factor. The Men in Blue made one change to the winning combination, as they dropped an under-performing Shikhar Dhawan and replaced him with Ajinkya Rahane. The Mumbaikar also desperately needs some runs so as to press his claim for the Champions Trophy.
England skipper Eoin Morgan was forced to make two changes as Sam Billings, who played a brilliant innings of 93 in the first practice game against India A, replaced the injured Alex Hales whereas Jonny Bairstow, who has just been drafted into the T20 squad, was called in place of Joe Root.
