So, after a barrage of punches hurled at each other in the four previous matches, England and India are now set for the series’ final battle. This match will essentially serve as a warm-up for the ICC Cricket World Cup, which will take place later this year.

This series has already proved to be worthwhile for everybody, and a near match would surely be the cherry on top.

England and India are the world’s top two T20I teams, and with the series tied at 2-2 and all riding on the final game, it’s a fitting end to the series. A victory in this upcoming match will also boost the team’s chances of winning the game. On March 20, 2021, the match will be held at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.



We’ve seen India follow a different style in the four matches so far, and it’s too early to say how good they’ve been. They’re also on the lookout for their ideal starting eleven, and the upcoming match may be their last opportunity to nail down their final lineup. Furthermore, India will be desperate to win the series, and they cannot afford to experiment and then lose the match as a result.

India, at the top of the food chain, is grappling with a surplus crisis. KL Rahul was regarded as one of the most difficult batsmen to face before the series began, but he has been relatively quiet so far. KL Rahul will be under a lot of pressure to perform well in the upcoming contest, particularly with Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav knocking on the door. Having said that, India will rest him and replace him with Ishan Kishan in this upcoming match.

Rohit Sharma is a constant challenge for every unit, but he hasn’t yet discovered his range. Though he hasn’t seemed to be bothered by any of the bowlers, he has thrown away his wickets twice in two games. There have been plenty of positives for India amid all the doom and gloom. Perhaps the most significant is how Shreyas Iyer has done in the middle order. In the first match, he was India’s sole fighter, and the last time he was out in the middle, he played a match-defining part. Suryakumar Yadav’s knock in the previous match was the cherry on top, and he will be another player to keep an eye on in the upcoming match.

Even, India’s death-bowling has been outstanding so far in the tournament. Kohli’s strategy of heading in with just five bowlers has so far been proven correct by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, and Hardik Pandya. The only obvious missing link in India’s bowling lineup was Yuzvendra Chahal, who was replaced by Rahul Chahar in the previous match. The only adjustment to India’s bowling that could happen in the upcoming match is Kohli replacing Sundar with Natarajan. Regardless, India is a formidable opponent, and even high-flying England would find it difficult to defeat them.


England had a full-strength side at Eoin Morgan’s disposal for the T20I series, and they have definitely done as such. England has driven India hard in each of the four matches so far, and will do so again in the upcoming match. In reality, England is the more consistent team of the two, having used virtually the same lineup in all four matches.

Since winning the ICC title a few years ago, England’s style of play began to be adopted by fans and experts all over the world. Their style is best suited to the game’s shortest structure, as shown by their team lineup. Although England has several reasons to be hopeful, they may still have some reasons to be worried.

Prior to this series, Dawid Malan had a great season, but his obvious vulnerability at the start of the innings is hurting England right now. Eoin Morgan is known for giving a player a long rope before discarding him, and we expect Malan to appear in the upcoming match. However, the swashbuckling left-handed batsman would be under immense pressure to not only strike, but to do so quickly. Apart from that, England has yet to illustrate the strength of their batting order, which could be a point of concern for them.

England’s success derives from their players’ willingness to go all guns blazing right from the start. With players like Jos Buttler and Jason Roy capable of tearing apart every bowling attack in the world, England’s batting line-up seems to be utterly formidable. On board, they have a batting line-up that goes all the way down to number nine, with Jofra Archer in the centre. We have already seen that England is one of the very few teams capable of beating India in India. They have a good chance of winning the T20I trophy if they play to their full potential.
