And as we approach the end of the long tour we are scheduled to witness three T20 internationals. The action moves to North India once again as we come close to the India vs England 1st T20 international and here we are with all the information regarding the live streaming details and the TV guide alongside a match preview to keep you in touch with all the developments in relation to the encounter.
India vs England 1st T20: Match Preview
The India vs England 1st T20 International is all set to witness yet another tight encounter between these two old war horses. The stage is set for a cracking encounter to continue the trend of high-scoring games that has been set in the recently concluded one-day internationals. Both teams are comprised a number of enterprising youngsters who can smash the ball to any part of the ground. So bowlers will definitely have a hard time to put the runs under control. The pitch here at the Green Park is also looking really exciting for the guys with the bat in hand and expectations are already high that it will be a belter as far as the batsmen are concerned. Add to that the lightning fast outfield which further adds to the woes of the bowlers.
Toss has been one of the factors over the years when a match is played in India. But that problem has been somewhat solved in the one-dayers with the games starting a bit earlier than what it used to be previously. So it is believed that there isn’t going to be too much of a worry for the thinktank of either team. And as we go by the recent trend, if India win the toss, Virat Kohli will choose to bat second as we understand that he has been one of the masters while chasing targets. England might also look to bat second but that won’t change things too much as far as the final result of the India vs England 1st T20 International is concerned.
Also, the centre of attraction is definitely going to be Virat Kohli yet again as this is for the first time he will be captaining the Indian national side as the full-time captain for the first time. As the one-day captain, he has made a brilliant start, and it is expected that the script is not going to change too much.
India vs England 1st T20: Team News
The upcoming India vs England 1st T20 International is all set to come across a host of new players as far as the playing eleven is concerned. India have got a number of new players in their ranks, but it remains to be seen how many of those are going to feature in the playing eleven. We are definitely going to come across new spinner as Ravichandran Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested for the upcoming India vs England T20 international series. Parvez Rasool might get a look in while Amit Mishra looks set to get a chance in the playing eleven. Also, we are quite sure that Ashish Nehra is going to make a comeback to the team. The 37-year old is one of the veterans who have fared decently enough to find an opportunity in the playing eleven. In fact, he has been instrumental in the wins that India have received in the recent times in the T20 internationals. However, it remains to be seen who is going to assist Nehra with the new ball upfront. It could be Hardik Pandya, or it might be Jasprit Bumrah. So it will be really interesting to find out who finally makes the cut for the playing eleven.
For England, the surprise is going to be Tymal Mills who has been included in the playing for the T2-0 internationals only. The left-arm fast bowler made his debut against Sri Lanka in a match which England won by 8 wickets. Mills ended up with figures of 22-0 in the four over he bowled. And the fact that the English bowlers were hammered to all parts of the ground in the one-day international might just open the gate for players like Mills. Other than that, England is expected to go with almost the same team as that of the one-dayers. Chris Jordan is also expected to be included in the playing eleven for he has the experience of playing in these conditions for he has played with the Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Indian Premier League. The batting looks pretty settled for the English with the significant players like Joe Root and Eoin Morgan being the mainstay of the team.
