With a gallant victory taken home by the men in blues with a clean sweep in the Tests, the next up is how well they can bag their trophies in the India vs England T20 series. India vs England had been the most happening test series in India this year and the management is looking forward to sending only the best to play the short over series. The Indian team management is facing turmoil, to be honest in placing forward their best squad for the upcoming India vs England T20. The 5 lined up T20 matches of India against England are just a warm-up assignment against the beginning of the T20 World Cup, which is going to commence at home this year.
19 constructive players are up and available for the upcoming India vs England T20 series with placing two in contention for each particular slot. The assignment of the best XI into five games would reveal how the Indian management is looking forward to the upcoming six months of building the team for the shortest format. The India vs England being just a beginning to mark the World Cup, it is just an evaluation of how the head coach Ravi Shastri, captain Virat Kohli, and bowling coach Bharat Arun are planning their roadmap to the WC2021.
India has been a happening team on the field always that’s closely followed in Cricdaddy’s live match prediction and hence everything ranging from their batting line-up, field set-up to their results matter intricately. Everybody is looking forward to seeing a settled playing XI in the first three matches of the upcoming India vs England. The venues being the same and so are the tracks, the team alteration is a possibility that is almost discarded now.
The batting order is going to get more interesting right from the beginning of the first India vs England T20. Rishabh Pant is seen in a roaring form and his comeback is going to yield an astonishing contribution to the team’s total. KL Rahul who was previously the top choice for behind the wickets is most probably not going to don the gloves if Rishabh Pant is taking up his position in the team.
India vs England live are going to get much spicier with the opening pairing of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan proceeding on the crease. But KL Rahul has proven his potential as a ball specialist and that has what amped up the competition.
The management is still in question as to Rahul’s placement in the team, and especially after he has proven himself as a worthy opener in the IPL last season. Will he be slotted down to the middle order as Dhawan cannot prove good results when placed down below?
The skipper with going down at third and followed by Pant and Pandya at fourth and fifth, where should Rahul be ideally placed? But the battle isn’t over yet. Rahul needs to yet fight Iyer and Surya who are the repertoire of strokes and have gear shifting abilities.
The pace is also changing with the return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who had proven himself to be India’s best white-ball exponent. A return after a long lay-off will face him to dual against Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar, the newfound pacing gems. The stead of Kumar always puts him ahead of Chahar due to the immense experience that the former possess over the latter.
For Chahar, he has been a more potent outswing bowler than a one-trick pony and lacks variation. To fill this void, Shardul is much craftier with swings at brisk paces. The sluggish Motera tracks are ideal for spinners like Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Axar Patel.
The India vs England live team selection will also witness a two-way fight among Navdeep Saini and Thangarasu Natarajan and the one with better variations will get picked up. Any forceful rest or injury will open up spaces for Ishan Kishan and Rahul Tewatia.
Cricdaddy’s live match prediction also looks forward to Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah; the lightening trio for India’s bowling backup who are recuperating from injuries and their return will pave a tougher selection ground for the management.
