The England cricket team would look to end its India tour on a high, when Jos Buttler-led side locks horns with India on the third One Day International (ODI) of a three-match series at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on March 28. England made a superb comeback by winning the second match by 6 wickets as the visitors chased down a 337-run target with 39 balls left in their innings. Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes went hammer and tongs as they smashed sixes all around the park, and which could force India to make changes in its bowling line-up.
