India is taking on England in five-match ODI(One-Day International) series and one Twenty20 International. Ambati Rayudu, Sanju Samson or Ajinkya Rahane may come in top order as an opener.

Murali Vijay, who was impressive in the Test series has been picked as Rohit’s replacement and will join the squad in England at the earliest. A BCCI press release stated that Rohit is going to miss the rest of the series.
All eyes are on Suresh Raina who was instrumental in leading Indian side to 133-run victory in the 2nd ODI at Cardiff with his hundred. Captain Dhoni said that sending Suresh Raina to bat at number five had paid rich dividends and this is not going to be changed in third ODI as well.
