England vs India Predictions


Both teams are severely weakened in the absence of international stars. India have however recently played as a unit so I’m backing them to get the win.

  • England’s Jason Roy has scored 45 & 52 runs in 2 of his last 4 T20I matches.
  • India’s Deepak Hooda has scored 47 & 104 runs in his last 2 T20I matches.
  • India have won their last 2 T20 matches against England.
  • India have won 16 of their last 18 T20 matches.

Head to Head


India have won three of their last five T20 matches against England. They last met in March 2021 for a five match series. India won it 3-2, winning the last two matches.

England Form


England have not played T20 cricket since January 2022. They lost that five-match series 3-2 in the West Indies.

Still considered among the best in the world in the shortest format, England will be looking to build towards the T20 World Cup later this year.

This series offers England an opportunity to look at some players with their Test players unavailable. 

England Injuries & Team News


The England squad is without their Test playing players as they recently finished a series against India. Eoin Morgan has also retired so Jos Buttler takes over the captaincy.

India Form


India played two T20 fixtures late in June against Ireland, winning both although the second match saw them just get over the line by four runs.

India have won 16 of their last 18 matches in this format. Their two defeats both came against South Africa in a home series in June 2022.

Despite losing the opening two matches against South Africa, India won the following two before the fifth one was rained out.

India Injuries & Team News


Rohit Sharma captains a side without some big hitters. Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and others are all missing after playing in the Test series against England.

Verdict

India are backed to win the 1st T20 with the in-form Deepak Hooda to top score.

For England, Jason Roy is backed in the best batsman market.
