England vs India: The third T20I is set to take place with only a day in between. However, with the nature of the game, a short turnaround may not be as bad. Both teams are likely to remain fresh despite the gap. India comes into the game with some puzzles regarding their middle-order continuing. They have a lot of options and are in search of the right balance. For England, the batting line-up looks settled but the bowling attack is a concern, which will be solved once the likes of Wood, Archer, and Rashid are back.
Match: England vs India
Date: 10th July 2022
Time: 7:00 PM IST
Venue: Trent Bridge, Nottingham
The weather in Nottingham is clear with some cloud cover but no chance of rain during the England vs India game.
The pitch is likely to be flat for the game as is the nature for white-ball games in England. Heavy runs are expected and batting second is a better option.
Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(c, wk), Dawid Malan, Harry Brooks, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Reece Topley, Matt Parkinson, Tymal Mills
Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan/Virat Kohli, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav/Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has come roaring back into the T20 side and is now a fixture in the eleven. He is back at his best finding swing and weaving his magic with ease. His bowling up front is wonderful and now he is back with Bumrah, a bowler he shared a wonderful partnership with the death from 2017 to 2019.
Jason Roy struggled in the first game with the ball swinging. His explosive approach though is a huge threat and it is only a matter of time before Roy takes on the bowling, negating any advantage thanks to the playing conditions. He is a crucial player in the side, and England will hope he can provide them with strong starts.
Both sides are coming with strong batting line-ups. England’s bowling though remains a concern, but their batting might may be enough to get them over the line on a flat track.
