India have upper hand in sole T20 against England
India are all set to play the last match of their England sojourn, which is a T20, scheduled to take place on Sunday at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
New Delhi: India are all set to play the last match of their England sojourn, which is a T20, scheduled to take place on Sunday at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
First, the tourists lost the five match Test series 1-3, even after having a 1-0 lead after two Tests. But then the Men in Blue reversed their fortunes in the ODI series by winning it 3-1, which was again a five match series.
Now, by winning the sole T20, both the teams would like to sign off the series on a winning note.
On papers, tourists are undoubtedly a better team in the shortest version of the game. On top of it, their ODI performance will certainly give them a much needed confidence.
All Indian batsmen are back in form, except Virat Kohli, who has struggled throughout the Test and ODI series. Indian tweakers and seamers too have bowled well in coloured clothing, thus far.
A far as the hosts are concerned, their top order batsman, Joe Root, who had scored a ton in the fifth and final ODI, will look to continue in similar fashion.
For the T20, England have picked uncapped Surrey batsman, Jason Roy, in their 14-man squad, but it would be interesting to see whether he will get a chance to make his debut in the match or not. Ravi Bopara and James Taylor too have been included in the shortest format.
In the absence of injured Stuart Broad, Eoin Morgan will lead the side.
Though, India have an upper hand, in T20 it's always difficult to put you money on a particular team as one cameo can change the scenario of the entire match.
