India vs England Predictions


The series is level at 1-1 with one match to play. Both teams are stacked with quality but the form of Virat Kohli stands out, my best bet is Kohli to score over 29.5 runs.

  • India’s Virat Kohli has scored 40, 85 & 73 runs in 3 of his last 5 T20I matches.
  • India’s Virat Kohli averages 50.86 in T20I cricket.
  • India’s Virat Kohli has scored over 29.5 runs in 10 of his last 15 T20I matches.
  • India’s Virat Kohli has scored 50+ runs in 5 of his last 10 T20I matches at home.
  • England’s Jason Roy has scored 49 & 46 runs in his last 2 T20I matches.
  • England's Jason Roy has top scored for England in their last 2 T20I matches.

Head to Head


India and England are level at 8-8 in their last 16 T20I matches. The current series is level at 1-1 with one match to play after India won the last T20I by seven wickets in Ahmedabad.

India Form


After losing the 1st T20I of the series to England, India bounced back to win the second one by seven wickets in Ahmedabad.

They restricted England to 164 runs on a very good batting surface. Washinton Sundar was again the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-29 in four overs.

KL Rahul was dismissed early in the run chase but Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli batted magnificently for a 94-run partnership. Kishan scored 56 while Kohli ended unbeaten in 73 runs.

India cruised home with more than two overs to spare after a 13-ball 26 by Rishabh Pant. With one match left to play, the series is poised perfectly.

India Injuries & Team News


KL Rahul has failed in the opening two matches. Rohit Sharma or Shikhar Dhawan will likely replace him in the 3rd T20I.

India shouldn’t be looking to make any other drastic changes unless pitch conditions force their hand.

England Form


England suffered a seven wicket defeat to India in the 2nd T20I. That has left the series level at 1-1 with one to play.

Batting first in Ahmedabad, Jason Roy scored his second successive score of 40+ runs to lead England to 164 in their 20 overs. Other than Roy, Dawid Malan contributed 24, Jonny Bairstow 20, Eoin Morgan 28 and Ben Stokes 24 runs.

The 164 probably was a bit short of par given how flat the wicket was, as India showed in their innings. Sam Curran and Jofra Archer both bowled well, going at 6.00 or under per overs.

Unfortunately the other bowlers were poor with Chris Jordan, Tom Curran and Ben Stokes going at over 13 runs to the over.

England Injuries & Team News


Moeen Ali once again missed out on selection but will surely get a run in the final match. Other players who will be looking to get a run include Sam Billings, Liam Livingstone and Mark Wood.

It is however unlikely that England will look to make many changes. Ali coming in for Tom Curran looks like the most likely change.
