India are set to host England for a five-match Twenty20 International series, starting on March 12. All the matches will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. While India have opted to test their bench strength by roping in fresh faces for the shortest format of the game, England have called all of their white-ball specialists for the T20I series. In the T20I format, both teams have played against each other 14 times, but Friday will be the first time when the two teams will be seen in action in Ahmedabad in a T20 match. There is hardly anything that separates the two sides as both have won seven matches each.
