The 3rd T20I of the India VS England T20I series will be played today on the 10th of July. This game will be played at the Trent Bridge. The Indian team has already sealed the series after winning the first 2 T20Is. The first T20I saw an exceptional performance by the batters while the second one saw the magic of the Indian bowlers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been throwing swinging fireballs at the batters. He has always given India a good start. So, here is a look at the preview of the 3rd T20I:
Indian Team Preview Before the 3rd T20I:
The Indian team is coming with great momentum. The team will also be keen to become the team that has white-washed England and Australia at their home in any of the formats. The Indian team has Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the form of his life. Jasprit Bumrah looks like he was never out to take a rest. Harshal Patel has also done his job very well. Coming to the spinners, Yuzi hasn’t been the point of chatter, but his contributions are valuable as well. The batters have tried to take the slam-bang approach off-late.
England Team Preview Before the 3rd T20I:
The English team hasn’t been in the best of touch. But the team hasn’t fielded its top players as well. In this very important series, they haven’t played Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes. This gives an idea of how deep the lineup of English youngsters is! Jofra Archer hasn’t taken to the field, Mark Wood is injured, and even in their absence, the English men are standing neck to neck with the Indian team. Jason Roy is not in the best form. Butler too hasn’t looked very settled.
Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant(w), Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Umran Malik
Expected Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma(c), Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
England Team for 3rd T20I:
Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w/c), Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Richard Gleeson, Matthew Parkinson, Reece Topley, Tymal Mills, Philip Salt.
Expected Top Performer of the Game:
The expected performer of today is Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli. The law of averages comes into play at some point in time. Virat and Rohit are having a bad time of late. Today can be their day on the field. So, either Virat or Rohit is expected to fire today. And each of us very well knows, what they can do, if they both get going together.
From the English team, Richard Gleeson and his express pace will be the top performers. He was troubling the Indian batters with his quick flames. Gleeson was effectively using the short ball. How did the Indian counter him? This will be a question to ponder upon.
