India vs England Live Streaming: It has been a long journey since the first ball in the first India vs England test match got bowled and after more than a couple of months, we have finally arrived at the end of a gruelling England tour of India. The hosts have dominated the proceedings on most occasions while the visitors have shown glimpses of their brilliance all throughout this tour of sub-continent. And as we approach the India vs England 3rd T20 International, we bring forward the live streaming details and the TV guide alongside the match preview and the probable starting line-up.
India vs England 3rd T20 International: Match Preview
The 3-match T20 series between India and England is extremely delicately poised with both teams tied at 1-1 after the end of the first two matches. England drew first blood when they beat India comprehensively in the first of the three matches in the series. India made a strong comeback with a hard-fought win in the second match where the margin was a slender one of just 5 runs. A brilliant final over saw the hosts keeping the series alive as we head off to Bangalore for the third and the final match in the series.
Indian captain Virat Kohli has a lot of things to look after as the batting line-up is yet to hit the right balance. In fact, the ongoing T20 series could be considered as a failure for the Indian captain if we keep in mind the standards that he has set himself. And subsequently, the big guns with the bat have also failed to fire which has put the pressure on the likes of young newcomers like Manish Pandey, KL Rahul and the bowlers. KL Rahul did an excellent job last night and also the bowlers did their job which eventually saw India through. But the likes of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina need to pull their socks up and put up a stellar show to clinch the T20 series. And with the 3rd T20 international set to be held at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, we can expect the strong batting line-up to get back to their supreme best.
England, on the other hand, have fared decently enough and were almost over the finishing line even in the second match at Nagpur but a dubious decision from the umpire saw them losing it out in the final over. Had Joe Root been not given out on the first ball of the final over, the result could have been altogether different. But that’s up to the ifs and buts. If we consider the overall performance of the English players, it is definitely much better than what it was in the test series. And one more go at full throttle could see the visitors finishing the series on a real high and chances of that happening can’t be ruled out at all. Their batting line-up has fired, the bowling has been overwhelming with the likes of Tymal Mills and Chris Jordan adapting to the Indian conditions brilliantly. However, the big difference between the two teams has been Moeen Ali whose disciplined bowling has managed to cramp up the star-studded Indian batting line-up. And in Bangalore, he will once again be raring to go although things might turn out to be much different than the previous ones.
The pitch in Bangalore has always been a batting paradise. And no exception is expected this time round as well. So we can expect a run feast, unlike the first two T20s where the slowness of the pitch made shot making much more difficult. So this time it will be a real test for the bowlers from both sides as the batsmen will definitely go hard at them. The dew will certainly not be one of the factors like the previous matches, so the toss will not be too much crucial. However, captains, these days like to field first and chase down a target. So we can expect that whoever wins the toss, will bowl first. And the fans should be set for yet another nail-biting encounter for one final time in the India vs England series which began way back in the month of November last year.
