After the entertaining Test and T20I series, India and England enter the ODI leg of the tour. The last game of the T20I series was another run fest as the hosts posted a massive total of 215 runs with crucial knocks by Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone and Harry Brooks. India gave a tough fight despite losing a lot of wickets as Suryakumar Yadav smashed his maiden T20I century. In the end, the Men in Blue fell short by 17 runs.
The Indian team has been rapidly improving during their England tour with crucial performances from every department. Their bowlers have been top-notch with Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal delivering consistent performances. Similarly, the all-rounders like Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya have performed well. India’s only weakness is their top order which hasn’t found form yet.
Similarly, England will have major reinforcements as their stars like Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow return. These players will perfectly take care of the weaknesses exposed during the T20I series. The hosts struggled overall in the shortest format as they conceded big runs and suffered regular batting collapses.
