Live Cricket Streaming - India takes on England in 5th ODI

Although the series resulted has been decided and India is at an unbeatable lead of 3-1, but cricket fever still continues. This time its a special case as the match is being played at Dharamsala which results in an almost festival out there for cricket fans. The hotels are booked from a year or so for accommodation of fans who want to witness this match live. Writing off all the accommodation and parking issues, still we can expect packed stands at this stadium.

India is high in confidence after a long time. It is good to see some youngsters back in form before its too late. India has to face Australia in a prestigious test series back home after this series. India will travel to England to play the last ever Champions Trophy which is nothing less than a mini-World Cup. So this is a good signal for India to see players like Kohli and Rohit Sharma flying back in form.

Rohit Sharma and Raina's 80 plus scores at Chandigarh guided India to a comfortable victory that also was a series winning effort. This puts India in a drivers seat and England would seek for a consolation win before flying back home.

Indian bowling has been exceptionally well not only in this series but also in the lost cause against Pakistan. Shami Ahmed and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have done a good job and they need to be groomed well for the next World Cup.

MS Dhoni is in good form and he can experiment with the playing eleven as well as the batting order. He may be lured to give Cheteshwar Pujara an opportunity and to rest Gautam Gambhir. He may also play Dinda in place of Ishant Sharma.

Let us see what would be the strategy of both the captains for this exciting 5th and final ODI. Pitch may help both bowlers and batsmen and this would create uncertainties in minds of captains at the toss.
