When and where:
After historic clean sweep against Ireland, India is now heading to a bigger challenge. The full-fledged England tour starts with the first T20I scheduled tomorrow (July 03) at Old Trafford Manchester. The clash will begin at 10:00 PM Local.
The 2-matches series against Ireland proved out to be a perfect warm-up for the men in blue. However, both the teams will have to do a lot of brainstorming for the playing 11. With KL Rahul’s 70 of 36 balls and U Yadav and S Kaul’s decent bowling figures in the second T20I, Virat Kohli and management have a bigger headache in picking the playing 11. While Jasprit Bumrah’s ruling out of T20I series was a big blow just before the start of the series, U Yadav and S Kaul and India-A’s Deepak Chahar provided some relief with their respective performances, D Chahar has been called in as J Bumrah’s replacement for T20I series. On the other hand, England would be thinking about misfit of Joe Root in the T20 squad. He has the lowest strike rate among the other batters.
It will be more of the clash of titans when the first two places ranked ODI team will lock horns tomorrow in the shortest format of the game.
Old Trafford in Manchester is a good batting wicket that favors batsmen. With 139 as the average first innings score the highest total recorded at this venue 191/7 by England vs New Zealand. The flip of the coin will also play a crucial role here as the team batting second has won 3 times.
