India are set to lock horns with England for the 4th T20I of a grueling series in Ahmedabad. Toss has been the major deciding factor in this series and the teams chasing have won all three contests so far. While both the skippers would want the luck with the coin, they would also be prepared just in case they have to bat first. The visitors come into this contest with a sole motive to seal the series, while the hosts try to take the series into a decider. With things so well poised, the stage is set for a mouth-watering contest on Thursday.
Rohit Sharma is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous T20 players at top of the order. After missing the first 2 matches, the 33-year-old returned for Men in Blue in the previous contest. After a low score on Tuesday, Rohit would be raring to play a big knock in this crucial contest. While skipper Virat Kohli is in top notch form, Ishan Kishan and Rishabh Pant could be the X-Factors in the fourth T20I. In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has shown glimpses of magic and could play a crucial role.
Jason Roy and Jos Buttler are proving to be a lethal opening pair. They have destroyed India’s bowling attack so far and will look to do the same on Thursday. Jonny Bairstow has looked good in the shortest format after a poor run in Tests and could be an interesting pick. Mark Wood and Jofra Archer have troubled the Indian batsmen with their pace and are going to be the players to watch out for in Ahmedabad, once again.
