Team India Need To Win To Remain In Contention For A Series Win
The hosts will have to win the fourth T20I in any case in order to remain in contention for a series win over England. If England wins the fourth T20I, they will win the series. The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is all slated to take place in India this year and they will certainly like to capitalize on the remaining opportunities.
Individual performances will have to rise if the hosts want to win the game. KL Rahul has failed with the bat in the first three games and Rohit Sharma did not look good in the third game. Ishan Kishan got off to a good start but gradually perished. Yuzvendra Chahal has been the poorest Indian bowler in the series so far and he has been replaced by Rahul Chahar.
