After dominating the longest format of the game, India will be up for a tougher challenge against the visitors England in a five-match T20 series starting Friday (March 12). All five matches will take place in Ahmedabad due to the pandemic situation and restrictions going around.
India won the four-match test series against England 3-1 and have qualified for the World Test Championship finals. They have last played a T20 series in the month of December against Australia and won the three-match series 2-1.
With the T20 Worldcup coming up this year, India has not rested their main players as this is most likely to be the last T20 series before the ultimate T20 World Cup in October. It will be a chance for the youngsters to cement their place while the seniors will be looking to make it count.
5 Indian Players Who Can Win The Man Of The Series Award:
5. Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal has been India’s number one spinner in the T20 format for a while now and already has a six-wicket haul in T20 internationals. He has played 45 T20 games and has picked up 59 wickets at an average of 24.7. He is not afraid to toss it up for the batsman and invite big shots which needs a lot of heart and courage. He could be a strong contender to win the man of the series award with a brilliant record against England in the past.
His economic rate has been on the higher end for some time but has been among the wickets and is a wicket-taker always. He cherishes when the batsman tries to go after him and operates in a very clever fashion. His form will be crucial to India’s success in the T20 World Cup and he can bowl at any period of the game giving a lot of options to the captain.
