Kolkata : Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to field against England in the third One-Day International (ODI) at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

India has brought in Ajinkya Rahane in place of Shikhar Dhawan.

England's two changes included Joe Root making way for Jonny Bairstow while Sam Billings replaced injured Alex Hales.

 India has never lost to England at Eden Gardens. India has won the series 2-0, England is playing for the pride. 

England, however, can't be faulted for a lack of effort. In the first match in Pune, they had pounded the Indian bowlers to post 350, but were done by Virat Kohli and Kedar Yadav.

In Cuttack, they near pulled out a miracle by chasing down 380 runs but fell short by just 15 runs. In  both the ODI, four Indian batsmen have scored centuries.
