Team India will play England in a three-match T2oI series shortly after the one-off Test that ends on July 5 in Birmingham. The first T20I between England and India will be played in Southampton on July 7 followed by the second game on July 8 in Birmingham and the final match is scheduled at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

The entire India tour of England 2022 will be broadcast in India on the Sony Sports Network and the live streaming of the tour will be available on the SonyLiv App. You can also follow all the Cricket Live Scores and the news happening around the tour on Cricketaddictor.

Both England and India have already announced their squads for the rescheduled fifth and final Test in Birmingham but they are yet to reveal their white-ball squads. England will obviously see a change in the white-ball leadership after veteran skipper Eoin Morgan announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday (June 28).

India will also play under the leadership of Rohit Sharma for the first time in England. However, the Indian skipper isn’t certain to play the one-off Test after contracting the virus last week and is going under an isolation period. India will miss the services of injured players KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav. 

The selectors will have a keen eye on players who are running out of steam but deserve chances to prove their potential for the T20 World Cup in Australia. India will play in the Asia Cup in the August-September window but many players might not make it till there.

IND vs ENG: 5 players who can be tested in the England T20I series for T20 World Cup 2022 selection

With too many options available at the disposal, the competition amongst the players will be stiff. Let us look at five such players who will need to prove their mettle if they get selected for the T20I squad.

1) Avesh Khan

The Indian pacer was dropped from the second T20I against Ireland after conceding 22 runs from two overs in the first game with the wicket of Gareth Delany. Avesh also played all five T20I matches for India in the South Africa rubber at home.

The Madhya Pradesh pacer didn’t pick any wicket in the first three games although he bowled economically well but produced a match-winning spell of 4/18 in the fourth game as India won by 82 runs and levelled the series 2-2. Avesh will have to perform exceptionally if he gets picked for the England T20I series.
