England will be desperate to avoid a second successive series whitewash in India, when they take on the Men in Blue in the 5th and final ODI at the Eden Gardens on Tuesday.

Having come nowhere near beating the Indians in the four matches thus far, the England players who seem to running out of ideas, will have one final crack at the world champions, in an effort to end the tour with a victory to their name.

Playing at home, the Indian batsmen seem have rediscovered themselves, and the situation was no different at Mumbai on Sunday.

ViratKohli once again steered Team India’s chase, as he finished with unbeaten innings of 86, and Suresh Raina more than played his part with a score of 80 from 62 balls.

England on their part seem to have completely lost the plot in conditions which have not quite suited their style of play.

Pitch Report : Well there was news about the Eden Gardens pitch having plenty of grass. However, there are a few grassy patches on the pitch which should assist the seam bowlers. Sunil Gavaskar reckons that this pitch may not be a featherbed and the batsmen need to be patient in piling up the runs. Not sure how its going to be for advantage spinners

Prediction of the Match: India continue wining moments and win Series with 5-0 white wash.
