England tour of India is coming to an end, after nearly two months. England would like to return home happy by winning the T20 series. The series is squared up with each side winning one all. England had taken lead in the series by winning in the first match and were all set to win the series in the second match until the last over thriller turned against their favor.They were cruising to target, with 7 wickets in hand and needing just 8 runs from last over, but with the magical bowling, Jasprit Bhumrah and slight help by faulty decisions of umpires kept India alive in the series.
India will be very confident while going into the series decider because of the much-needed win. While England will be very angry with themselves as they lost the opportunity to win a series in India, which no team has done in last one year. England will also rue the fact that two umpire decision against them but that’s all part and parcels of the game. It’s the first time that any visitor team has been more dominant against India, in sub continent wickets.
The series decider will be played tomorrow in Bangalore which is having a small outfield and is known for providing run fest in IPL.Many Indian players like Virat, Rahul, Yuvraj, Chahal have the lot of experience playing in this stadium, as it is the home of RCB team.
India will be very happy that their opener Lokesh Rahul performance in the previous game where he compiled a crucial 50+ score for the team. Also in bowling, all their bowlers did very well to defend a below par score.
There are no injury issues for India and they will not be tinkering with their winning combination for the decider of the series. India will be an opening with Virat, as the team management thinks its best for the team. He will be eyeing for a big score on his second home ground. Meanwhile in bowling department all eyes will be again on Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah, and Yuzvendar Chahal.
India Predicted XI:
Virat Kohli (c), Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Ms Dhoni, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Amit Mishra, Ashish Nehra, Yuzvendar Chahal, Jasprit Bhumrah
Key Players: Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra
England will really want to finish on a happy note by winning this T20 series. England will be gutted by their recent performance but will be confident to win the series decider as they have put India on back foot many times in this series.
England would have loved to try their bench strength if they had won the last match. with series decider coming I don’t feel they will make changes in their winning combination of first match. Team management would like their star batsman Joe Root to convert his starts into big score, which he is unable to do in the whole series. Jonny Bairstow can be given chance in place of Jos Butler who is struggling for form in recent matches.
England Predicted XI:
Jason Roy, Sam Billings, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Jos Butler/Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Tymal Mills
Key Players: Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jason Roy, Chris Jordan
FANTASY DREAM11 Team
Expert Team XI: Virat Kohli (c),Jason Roy, Lokesh Rahul( Suresh Raina OUT), Joe Root (VC), Eoin Morgan, MS Dhoni (wk), Ben Stokes, Yuvraj Singh (Moeen ali OUT), Ashish Nehra, Yuzvendar Chahal, Chris Jordan
*Team can get changed, so please stay updated.
Captain & Vice Captain: We think Kohli should be always the captain, yes he got out early in two matches but consider that he was hitting the ball really well in this matches. He is big match player, and likes to lead the team from the front. Joe Root is another player in great form for visitors and is consistent too, you can bank on him to play as vice-captain. You can also choose Morgan for this role.
Batsman: Suresh Raina is a T20 specialist and also can bowl some tight overs for the captain so he must be on the team. Jason Roy has got out on two occasions, but he can change the match on his day.Another player who be in your team is Lokesh Rahul, as he performed really well in last game any suggestion from your side will be welcomed. Any suggestion from your side can be commented below and will be welcomed from our side.
All-rounder:.Ben Stokes for me is the best all rounder for me.Yuvraj Singh is in our team.Yuvraj has got out in two matches early, but he has expereince of playing in Bangalore so i removed Moeen Ali out and selected Yuvraj Singh. Any suggestion from your side can be commented below and will be welcomed from our side.
Bowler: Ashish Nehra is handy with his experience and we have seen in previous matches and Chris Jordan also have troubled batsman and is good fielder too. We still have doubt between Chahal or Bumrah, but have now decided to go with Yuzvendar Chahal finally because of his experience of bowling on those wickets in IPL. Any suggestion from your side can be commented below and will be welcomed from our side.
