The confidence would be running high in the Indian camp after sealing the Test series and T20I series already. The hosts have been clinical with their approach so far and managed to bounce back twice already after losing the first game in both the Test and T20 series, respectively. India would like to break the pattern and try to start with a win for a change. Also, it is going to be a 3-match series, so it would be tough to mount a comeback after losing the first match.

The problem of plenty would follow India here, as they have announced an 18-men squad for this series. They have to figure out the best combination in the first game itself. KL Rahul is likely to be dropped from the playing 11 after a horrible T20 series. Rishabh Pant could get the nod ahead of the stylish batsman from Karnataka. Shikhar Dhawan could open alongside Rohit Sharma while the captain Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer would bat at number 3 and 4, respectively. Washington Sundar could fill in as the spin bowling all-rounder alongside the leggie Yuzvendra Chahal. T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Shardul Thakur are expected to form the pace bowling troika.


The visitors would be eager to get one back at the hosts after losing the Test and T20I series. It is going to be an enthralling battle between the top two ranked teams in the world. The world champions have transformed themselves into the most fearsome unit in white-ball cricket, and they would come hard at the hosts. However, they are going to miss the services of their star pacer Jofra Archer.

England have some issues to address as their pace bowling attack is looking weaker in the absence of Archer. They have to find the best combination in the middle order as Moeen Ali looks all set to mark his return to the side. The biggest talking point for England is going to be the number 3 position. Liam Livingstone could play at the number 3 position. Sam Curran and Tom Curran could form the pace attack alongside Mark Wood.
