Toss – Time for the all-important toss. Why important you ask? Because the side that has won the toss has won the game so far in this series. Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is out in the middle along with the England captain, Eoin Morgan, and the match referee. Up goes the coin, Morgan calls Heads and it comes down as Heads. ENGLAND OPT TO FIELD!
PITCH REPORT – Deep Dasgupta and Ajit Agarkar are down for the pitch report. Agarkar says that it is the red soil pitch and things happen quicker. Tells it is a good pitch and reminds us the side bowling first has done well so far. Agarkar feels team bowling first would exploit the slower ball option and the pitch will settle down as the game goes on. Dasgupta says that the offside boundary for the right-hander is a bit longer than the other side. Agarkar feels that 170-175 will be the bare minimum side batting first would look to get.’ Dasgupta ends by saying that the pitch will be good for batting but there will be something for the bowlers as well.
Time for the action in this high-octane T20I series between England and India to move ahead. The two teams now clash in the third T20I with both winning a game each from the previous two games. The sad thing though is that this game and the remaining two games would be played behind closed doors owing to covid-19 norms. Both teams have had their share of success and failures and the team who learns from it will go onto take the lead today. For India, it has been their all-round skills that have been on display for quite some time now as they look to maintain the tempo they gained after a win in the 2nd T20I. England though are not far behind as they too are fighters and we expect them to come out all guns blazing after having a poor outing in the 2nd T20I. A cracker of a contest awaits us as we wait for the toss and team updates which will come in a short while.
