After power packed performance by England bowling unit and Jos Buttler in the batting inning England are now leading the 5 match series by 2-1. While India have been seen bit rusty and struggling against England bowling unit.
Team India’s batting performance has been abysmal while batting first as two times they batted first and both times their top order collapsed. Opener KL Rahul has looked clueless against pace while the likes of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Hardik Pandya too didn’t do much and captain Kohli who is back in form needs to continue his good form.
In bowling pacers need to strike in the powerplay and Yuzvendra Chahal needs to work on his line length. On the other side, England’s pacers have been good especially Mark Wood who played major role in England’s two wins and spinner Rashid too is doing well and in batting their top order is in fine form and they’re playing like they have been doing for the past three years in this format.
Despite India being 1-2 down, no major changes are expected in the playing eleven. England, like India, also want to win in all conditions and will be buoyed by their emphatic win in the previous game.
Predicted Playing XI:
India: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal
England: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
