After the breath-taking Test cricket this week, the Indian cricket bandwagon will now move to the limited-overs format!!!

India and England are all ready to play limited-overs white-ball cricket and face each other in a 3-match T20I series followed by a 3-match ODI series.

The  T20I series will mark the first assignment of Jos Buttler as the full-time limited-overs captain of England. While Indian captain Rohit Sharma has fully recovered from Covid and will be seen in action for the first time since the IPL 2022.

Fantasy Tips for Ind vs Eng 1 T20I

Must have players in your fantasy team-

  • Jos Buttler– Jos the ‘boss’ Buttler is in the form of his life. He would open the innings and will have additional responsibility as the captain. He can be the player that might earn you the most points.
  • Liam Livingstone- Livingstone is just exceptional with both bat and bowl. He would look to smash some big sixes and pick a couple of wickets.
  • Harshal Patel- Harshal has been bowling really good at the death and is always in with opportunities to take wickets.
  • Deepak Hooda- Hooda has shown decent form with the bat and can score big runs on his occasion.

TO SOME IT UP

This will be a challenging series for India and they would want to start this away T20I series on a winning note after the rather ordinary outing in the 5th Test a day ago.

However, England might hold an advantage over India given they will be playing in their home conditions and the availability of most of their main first XI players.

So that’s it for today, watch the match on Thursday and return for the post-match analysis.
