According to IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction for Today’s Match Fantasy Cricket, India will take on England in the 1st T20I on Tuesday, 23rd March 2021, at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Keep reading to find out about India vs England T20I Series 1st ODI match IND vs ENG Dream11 team today.

After a couple of jaw-dropping series, we are finally here for the ODIs. India had recently made it a habit to come from behind to win the series. The team did the same in Australia and had the same type of scenario in Tests as well as in T20Is. A lot of credits must go to the bowlers too, who has managed to hold their nerves in the crunch situations. Led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India had a decent couple of matches here.

In the T20I series, India came from 1-2 to win two consecutive matches to take the series 3-2. The best part of the same is that they had managed to defend the target in the last two matches. Also, after a couple of poor outings, Rohit Sharma came back stronger in the last match to give India a necessary brisk start. 

Talking about England, they will be disappointed with the way things had turned around. The team had the series in hands but had managed to lose it from nowhere. Especially, in the final contest where they were on top while batting.

Pitch Report of Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium

This venue has been a high-scoring one. We can expect teams to win the toss and ask the opponent to bat first because the chasing is much easier. There will be something for the pacers early in the innings and the spinners will take over in the middle-overs but that shouldn’t be a call for an emergency.

So far, 4 ODIs have been played at this venue with two of them were won by the team batting first. These two teams have met earlier at this venue where England had a good run, scored 350. India witnessed one of the best chases here with Virat Kohli and Kedhar Jadhav scoring tons to take the team to the win by three wickets. 

Weather Report of Pune

A typical Pune weather awaits us here. There will be sun and the temperature will eventually drop as the game proceeds. The second half of the game will be interesting because of the dew factor. It is wise to go with more pacers than spinners here.

Wind Speed- N 2 km/hr

Humidity- 35%

Temperature- 33 to 38 Degree Celsius

Fantasy Experts Advice: The Dream11 users should keep the fact in mind that England team will be playing in unfriendly conditions under high temperature. It will be difficult for them to maintain the pace with the game for 100 overs including both the innings. So, everyone should not exclude weather that will be one of the prominent factor to play major role in players performance in 1st ODI.

IND Squad:

Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), KL Rahul (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Md. Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur.

IND Team News

India, undoubtedly, has a strong squad here. Thankfully for them, both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are in good form. Shikhar Dhawan, who didn’t enjoy a good run in T20Is, will be looking for a fresh start here, so does KL Rahul.

However, the team might prefer going in with Suryakumar Yadav who is currently in good form. It might be a tricky choice ahead of Shreyas Iyer. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya are more of mandatory picks here; it will interesting to see if Pandya gets to bowl. The team is unlikely to give an opportunity to Prasidh Krishna here as they will opt for more experience.

ENG Team News

After being in reserves for more than two series, Matt Parkinson has finally made it to the England squad. However, it is very unlikely that he would get an opportunity ahead of some of the experienced players here. The team’s batting order is almost the same as that featured in the T20I series. Liam Livingstone might replace Jofra Archer here.

IND vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction Choice for Captain and Vice-Captain

Virat Kohli is an obvious pick in this fantasy side for the captain. With 12040 runs to his name, he is certainly a delight to watch. He was the player of the series in the T20Is and will be looking to carry his form here. He has played 30 matches against England and has an average close to 46 with 1178 runs to his name. 

Rohit Sharma was outstanding in his last contest where he was able to connect the ball with perfection right from ball one. In that match, he had an excellent fifty and has been in a good form ever since the return of international cricket after pandemic. He is heading closer to 10000 runs in ODIs and has 9115 runs at the moment. His record against England is good too, averages close to 51.  

Vice-Captain Picks

Jos Buttler was England’s highest scorer in the T20I series. He seemed in good touch throughout the series and is certainly the player to watch out for in this contest. He is a couple of hundreds away from 4000 ODI runs which he will be well aware of as well. However, his record against India in ODIs are pretty normal with just 314 runs from 16 innings. 

Jason Roy will be opening the innings for England here and will be the key player for sure. The last time he played at this venue, he ended up scoring 73 from just 61 deliveries with 12 fours to his name. Considering the fact that he is in good form at the moment, we can expect him to come good in this contest. 

IND vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction – Top Picks


Shardul Thakur

Thakur was the real game-changer in T20I for India. He ended up as the leading wicket-taker in the series. Though a bit expensive, he was Kohli’s go-to man during the crisis and he did respond well by grabbing wickets, his double-wicket over was the turning point in the final T20Is. 


Ben Stokes has owned India in multiple occasions in ODIs, a format he enjoys more. He has scored three fifties in his last four outings against India in this format and also will be rolling his arms for a few overs. He has picked up 9 wickets against the hosts in ODIs.

Adil Rashid was able to castle Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma multiple times in T20Is which makes him a tricky pick in this contest. This could be his day and he might prove to be the difference between both teams. He has 155 wickets in total in his ODI career.
