Eng vs Ind, 3rd T20I: Preview
After a shocking defeat in Cardiff T20I , both India & England are ready to battle it out in the final T20I. With Ben Stokes likely to come in the squad after being declared fit, India might leave Dhawan out & look for Krunal or Deepak/Kaul to strengthen the bowling which is a bit weaker. Also, the running between the wickets is also a big concern. And the match will start at 14:00 local time so there are less chances of getting any dew and more-over it will be evenly paced match.
Pitch: The match is slated to be played at County Ground, Nevil Road in Bristol. The Pitch is expected to favour spinners more than the pacers which might be a problem for English team. The last time England played a T20I here was back in year 2011 against Srilanka and was a low scoring affair.
India- After the loss, India is expected to make few changes and if the sources are to be believed Krunal Pandya is expected to debut at Bristol.
Playing XI:- KL.Rahul, Rohit, Virat(C), Raina, MS.Dhoni(Wk), Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Chahal, Kuldeep, Umesh, B.Kumar
England- Joe Root is likely to be replaced by fit Ben Stokes & Moeen Ali set to replace Jake Ball due to ground conditions in Bristol.
Playing XI:- Jos Buttler(Wk), Roy, Hales, Morgan(C), Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Ali, Willey, Plunkett, A.Rashid, Jordan
