India-A tri-series in England, 2018

EN-A vs IN-A Finals| England-A vs India-A WHO WILL WIN

The Big Picture

So, it has finally come down to this! After weeks of ebbs and flows, we are finally down to two teams vying to be crowned champions in the India-A tri-series, 2018. It will be England-A vs India-A at the Kennington Oval in London in a bid to gain bragging rights, on Monday, July 02, 2018.

It has been a great tournament thus far for India-A. After having suffered a blip at the hands of hosts England-A at the start of the tournament, a game which they proceeded to lose by seven wickets, the Colts fought back valiantly to register three back-to-back wins, including a 102-run win against a strong England-A side. The trio of Agarwal, Vihari, and Shubhman Gill were the spearheads of that win, as India A racked up a towering 6-309 in 50 overs, before the bowlers in Ahmed (2-30), and Shardul Thakur (3-53) restricted the power-packed ‘Lions line-up to a mere 207. Rahul Dravid’s side would hope for another complete performance as they bid to claim their superiority against a very good England A side in their own backyard. So, who will win England-A vs India-A? Let us delve into the betting odds as part of our EN-A vs IN-A today match prediction.

The average first innings score is 249 which drops significantly to 213 in the second, a testimony that surface will get slower in the latter half thus bring the spinners into play.
