IND vs ENG 3rd T20I Preview: India faces abundance problem as England seek to shine outside the comfort zone

India and England qualify for third T20 International with the series tied 1-1. India’s attempts to play more aggressively failed in Game 1 as their batting order crumbled, but a fearless half century of Ishan Kishan’s debut propelled them to victory in Game 2. England, meanwhile, hit well chasing a small total in Game 1, but couldn’t set an important goal for India in Game 2 as they were upset by the slow pace of the pitch, as Captain Eoin Morgan admitted.

India will now face a selection puzzle at the top of the order. Rohit Sharma was “rested for a few games” according to captain Virat Kohli before the first game. As Shikhar Dhawan played in his place in the first T20I, he was replaced by Ishan Kishan in the second, which will be difficult to drop after his 56 32-ball, which saw him dominate the English pacers and lone spinner Adil. Rashid.

His aggressive intent is the type of strategy Kohli talked about before the series, and after a man-of-the-match performance, Dynamo Jharkhand argued strongly to be kept in the camp.

KL Rahul, meanwhile, has failed to shoot in both games so far, but he was named as the first-choice opener in the T20Is with Rohit Sharma ahead of the series. So it remains to be seen whether he will be dropped to welcome the return of India’s vice-captain, or whether Ishan Kishan will have to give up his place, or whether they are both kept in the squad, with Kishan moving on. in order.

Suryakumar Yadav also made his debut in the second T20I, but with Kohli, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer coming over him in order, he didn’t get a chance to show off his talents, so how did the management how the team manages its situation remains a question mark. .

The visitors, meanwhile, are the No. 1 T20I team in the world, but have risen to the top after dominating on faster pitches that match their strengths.

With the T20 World Cup later in the year, Morgan spoke about the importance of playing slower conditions in this series to give players the opportunity to learn how to perform better on such pitches before the flagship event.


Mark Wood is likely to make a comeback, and will most likely replace the failed Tom Curran.

Their batting lineup is stable, but England are hopeful that someone other than Jason Roy, who has come out barely half a century in both matches, will raise his hand and play a big hit.
