After dominating the England team in the first T20I at Manchester, the Indian team entered into the second T20I as the favorites of the game. Had they won the game, the series would have been over with the visitors taking a safe lead. The game was in India’s hand until the last over of the game.
The hosts managed to level the series with the help of Alex Hales’ brilliant half-century in the second T20I in Cardiff. The third and final game of the T20I series will be played on July 8 in Bristol. Both teams will be looking forward to putting their full effort to seal the series.
The Indian team have a great chance of registering a memorable series victory in England. But, they need to perform together, just the same way as they did in the first game at Manchester. Here we take a look at India’s predicted playing XI for the 3rd T20I game against England.
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma
The left-hand opener, Shikhar Dhawan has struggled in the first two T20 International games against England. Dhawan, who was in prolific form during the Ireland series, has thrown his wicket away cheaply in the two T20I games against England. He would like to score big in the do-or-die game against England.
Rohit Sharma, who has been in decent form, played a sensible knock in the first T20I in Old Trafford. In the previous game, he struggled against swing deliveries before dismissing cheaply. However, he is likely to retain his opening slot for the final T20I game.
