ENG vs IND, 3rd T20I



England and India will face each other in the third and final T20I contest at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Sunday, July 10. After the heroics in the first two games, India are firm favourites to win this match. They have a formidable batting lineup, a potent bowling attack and are overall a threatening T20 unit. England on the other hand are lacking the teeth in their bowling prowess. While they pack a punch in the batting department, their bowling looks a little fragile. 

England would want to get their balance right when they take the field on Sunday. Batting which is supposed to be their stronger suit hasn’t done much thus far. They have the power hitters in their ranks who single handedly can change the outcome of the game. From Jos Butler, Liam Livingston to  Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali, each English batter is recognized for his prowess as an impactful player. As far as bowling is concerned then the hosts have  plenty of gaping holes to fill.  They don’t have a quality seamer who can make the best of the playing conditions and pick wickets with the new ball. In the spin department, England are dearly missing the services of Adil Rashid. David Willey, if included, can prove to be a good addition. The bowling all rounder can move the new ball both ways and is very handy with bat in hand. He alongside Reece Topley and Chris Jordan can form a menacing pace trio. 

High flying India will be eyeing a series victory. They have been dominant thus far and would be desperate to end things on a winning note. In the batting department they have the likes of Rohit Sharma, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya who have been brave and fearless with the way they have shaped their innings. In the bowling front, the men in blue have Arshdeep Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel and an extra bowler in the form of Hardik Pandya. So, all in all this team looks good on paper. Ahead of this exciting tie, let us have a look at how these two sides will fare out in Sunday’s clash


Match Details

Match: ENG vs IND, 3rd T20I, India tour of England, 2022

Date: Sunday, July 10, 2022

Time: 7:00 PM

Venue: Trent Bridge, Nottingham 


Pitch Report

Trent Bridge's field lacks that hint of green, unlike those at Lord's or Old Trafford. The Nottingham pitch frequently has a brownish tint and is consistently level. In general, high scores in all three formats are relatively common at this venue. Therefore, we can expect a really good batting time at Trent Bridge, and the spinners may also be required to contribute given the pitch's innate sluggishness.


ENG vs IND Squads

ENG: Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Jason Roy, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, David Willey, Richard Gleeson, Jos Buttler (Captain), Philip Salt, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills, Matthew Parkinson, Reece Topley.
