India vs England Predictions


Jason Roy has been consistent for England in this series, scoring 40+ runs in three of the four matches. My best bet is for Roy to score over 24.5 runs.

  • India’s Virat Kohli has scored 40, 85, 71 & 77 runs in 4 of his last 7 T20I matches.
  • India’s Virat Kohli averages over 50 runs per innings in T20 cricket.
  • England’s Jason Roy has scored over 24.5 runs in 3 of his last 4 T20I matches.
  • England’s Jason Roy has scored 49, 46 & 40 runs in 3 of his last 4 T20I matches.

Head to Head


England and India are level at 9-9 in their last 18 T20I encounters. The current series is level at 2-2 after India won the 4th T20I by eight runs.

India Form


India won the 4th T20I against England in Ahmedabad to level the series at 2-2. They now go into the final T20I match with the series on the line.

Suryakumar Yadav top scored with 57 runs as India posted a total of 185 runs. Other contributions came in the form of Rishabh Pant’s 30 and Shreyas Iyer’s 37 runs.

Hardik Pandya was magnificent with the ball, taking 2-16 in four overs as England fell eight runs shy of the total. That has set the series up for a brilliant conclusion with the 5th T20I acting as a final.

India Injuries & Team News


India have stuck with KL Rahul at the top of the innings for the entire series despite failing in all four matches. While there could be a change, the selectors seem determined to give the out-of-form opener more time.

Captain, Virat Kohli did not field during England’s batting innings in the last T20I due to a thigh injury. Reports suggest it was precautionary and he should be fit to start the final match.

England Form


England were in prime position to win the T20I series against India on two occasions but blew their lead. Bowling first in the 4th T20I, England started well as none of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma or KL Rahul scored runs.

Jofra Archer produced a magnificent spell of bowling as he took 4-33 in four overs. Unfortunately England let India off the hook during the middle overs as they amassed a total of 185 runs. England’s batsmen then couldn’t maintain the tempo, requiring over nine runs to the over.

Jason Roy’s form continued, scoring 40 of 27 balls. Ben Stokes top scored with 46 runs of just 23 balls but unfortunately there was little else in terms of runs.

England were eventually restricted to 177 in their 20 overs, losing by eight runs.

England Injuries & Team News


England have held back on making wholesale changes during the series. That is expected to remain the case in the decider.

Mark Wood could however return after bowling well in the 3rd T20I but was rested for the last match. Chris Jordan is likely to make way. Moeen Ali has still not managed to get any game time.
