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.
