The T20 series is moving to the crucial stages as England has taken a 2-1 lead in the five-match series and in-form players will be looking to make it big again. England’s pace attack comprising Jofra Archer and Mark Wood has been very good with the new ball while the Indian bowlers have been very average and do not like posing a threat to the strong England batting lineup.
The Indian batting on the other has staged an early collapse in two of the three games so far and Virat Kohli has the lone standout player so far. Ishan Kishan’s knock in the second T20 was a positive sign going forward but he will need to be more precise with his shots as he takes a lot of risks. India’s best T20 batsman in the last two years has been KL Rahul who has scored 1 run overall in his last four T20 games.
3 Players Who Can Win The Man Of The Series Award After The T20 Series:
Virat Kohli’s form with the bat has been very important in the last two T20s after his downfall in the first game. He had to silence his critics with a big knock and he has produced two excellent knocks in the circumstances. He took India over the line in the second T20 with a 73 not out of just 49 deliveries with three sixes and five fours. His partnerships with Ishan Kishan and Rishabh Pant meant that England did not comeback in the game.
He continued his batting form into the third T20 with a 77 not out off 46 deliveries with four sixes and eight fours when India needed him at most. India was struggling at 24 for three wickets and Kohli stitched partnerships with Iyer and Pandya to get India to a decent score of 156 which wasn’t enough, however. He is the highest run-scorer in the series so far and with his consistency, he will be a top contender to win the man of the series award.
