India Look To Clinch Series

India got off to a winning start on their England tour 2nd T20I: India looks to wrap up early series win
Sidney Guerrero | 08 July, 2018, 15:13

A spin bamboozled, yet aggressive white-ball English team, turned their woes around to win the second T20 worldwide at Cardiff, thereby levelling the three-match series 1-1 and in the process ended India's seven-match winning streak in T20Is. A top edge off a back-of-a-length ball from Jake Ball ended Rohit's misery, handing Ball's first T20I wicket and India, their first blow.

England are facing a selection headache for the third T20I against India on Sunday, with Ben Stokes back in contention after recovering from injury. It is a stark reminder of its poor winning ratio nevertheless, having won only 5 out of their last 10 T20 internationals. In fact, India's last series' loss with more one T20I game also came against the same opposition, at Florida in August 2016.

The last time India lost a bilateral T20I contest was against West Indies in July 2017, albeit that was a one-off game. A scarcity of unorthodox wrist spinners to practice against is one of the key reasons for this move, as the spin-bowling machine is capable of replicating every style of delivery. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots we played, I thought". England has made one change.

Indian captain Virat Kohli said: "They did their homework and played really well".

But when they stepped on the scales Friday morning, Cormier (246 pounds) actually outweighed Miocic (242 1/2). Cormier is at least 5 inches shorter than the 6-foot-4 Miocic, who has a whopping 8-inch reach advantage.

Hales was included in the side in place of injured all-rounder Ben Stokes, but on current form, it will be tough to leave him out.

Virat Kohli will be expecting another dominant show from his side to set the tone for the long England tour ahead. At the start of what promises to be an intensely fought summer of cricket, this is now about bragging rights and carrying winning momentum into the ODI series.

The England v/s India 3rd T20 global match begins at 10.00 pm IST (2200 hrs).
