After having comprehensively beaten the English team in the three-match series, it seems that India is all set to win the T-20 as well. India will be playing the English team on 26th of January to play the first T-20 match that is to be played between the two teams in this season.
The match is expected to be a comprehensive one. While on one end, India has played tremendous well and has been able to win the ODI series with a match remaining, the English team too has found back their sync and also gained back some confidence, after having won the final ODI in the historic Eden Gardens.
Both The Team Looking To End It On A High Note
The match which will be played at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur will start from 4:20 and will be broadcasted live on various television channels and online medias.
India has till now dominated the home tournament. The Virat Kohli lead team had first won the test series at home, with a 4-0 win, in the 5-match encounter. Then in the ODI series too, England had lost two successive games to give away the 3 match series. The ODI encounters between the two teams had shown some of the great display of cricket by players from both the teams. The magnitude of the game can be well understood from the fact that the minimum number of runs scored by any team in all the innings played was 316/9 by India in the last match of the series.
Apart from the great form that the team is having, one thing that will surely be under the scanner, will be Kohli’s captaincy. After the sudden decision to step down from captaincy, by Captain Cool, Virat is the next torchbearer of the national cricket team. While he had already justified his captaincy skills in the test matches in the past. This was the first chance that he had got to showcase his talent as a captain in the limited overs. He has now already established his supremacy in the ODI series. It will now be the next task for him to prove his captaincy skills in the T-20
