Bairstow is expected to open alongside Jason Roy, with Stokes set to slip into the middle order. The Men In Blue come into the series in confident form despite Sundays defeat, with plenty of credit in the bank after their clinical 50-run win in Southampton, followed by an equally impressive 49 run win in the second T20I in Birmingham.

The match looks set to give Virat Kohli a chance to once again answer his critics with the 50 overs-a-side format allowing the Royal Challengers Bangalore star the opportunity to rack up a big individual score and silence those growing voices that have started to call into question his place in the starting line up.
