India and England will lock horns in the 1st T20I of England tour of India, 2021 on Friday, 12 March 2021, at Narendra Modi Stadium, Motera, Ahmedabad. Keep reading to find out the England tour of India, 2021 1st T20I IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction and fantasy cricket tips.
The Test series was dominated by the hosts, especially after the first Test. But that’s done and dusted now. The Englishmen, these days, find themselves more comfortable in the limited-overs format. Them being at the top spot of the T20I rankings is proof of that. So, the disappointment of the Test series shouldn’t deter their confidence one bit for the remainder of the tour.
However, team India has also enjoyed a great run in the shortest format in the past few series. While England’s squad seems pretty strong, the hosts also possess a bunch of power-packed players. The selectors have rewarded some of the players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rahul Tewatia, and Ishan Kishan for their consistent show in the IPL. Rishabh Pant is also back in the team after a superb run in the recent Tests. Jasprit Bumrah isn’t available for this series but Bhuvneshwar Kumar‘s return would even things out to some extent.
England’s squad also has some of the best white-ball players. The likes of Eoin Morgan, Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan have been their consistent performers. This team has done a mighty fine job in the format in their last few series. With the T20 World Cup lined up this year in India, this series would be extremely important for the visitors.

Dream 11 Prediction and Fantasy cricket tips for India vs England 1st T20I
Here is the player list for the best dream11 team for today’s India vs England 1st T20I
Wicketkeeper for 1st T2oI IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction
KL Rahul has been one of the most consistent performers for team India in T20I cricket in the last few games. So, he is almost certain to find a place in the XI. Rishabh Pant, after a grand show in Test cricket, has returned to the limited-overs team. If he is picked in the XI, the left-hander could make an impact as he is in great form.
Captain and Vice-Captain for 1st T20I IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction
With Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in the team, these two could well open the innings for India. But Rahul’s form in the format should earn him a place in the playing XI even if it means that he would bat in the middle order. Rahul would fancy his chances of spending time in the middle and scoring big. England’s captain Eoin Morgan would be a crucial batsman in the middle order and for his experience in this part of the world, he is an apt choice as the vice-captain.
Batsmen for 1st T20I IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction
Hardik Pandya is a destructive batsman and India would like him to solidify his place in the team for the upcoming T20 World Cup. So, all eyes would be on him. Virat Kohli hasn’t had scores as per standards set by him in recent times. So, he would look to make amends soon. Dawid Malan is the top-ranked batsman in the rankings. The left-hander has been the best batsman in the English line-up of late.
All-rounders for 1st T20I IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction
There is a flurry of all-rounders in the English squad. Sam Curran was impressive in the last IPL while he represented Chennai Super Kings. For his abilities with both bat and ball, he might find a place in the team ahead of the other potential candidates.
Bowlers for 1st T20I IND vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction
T Natarajan had impressed one and all with his death bowling in the IPL. When he was picked for the Australian tour, he continued the impressive stuff. In the absence of Bumrah, Natarajan would be the go-to bowler for India. Yuzvendra Chahal has enjoyed playing against England and he would be the biggest threat for the opposition. Jofra Archer didn’t have much success in the Test series but he would be an asset in the T20Is. Adil Rashid would be a handy bowler for England if the surface offers any amount of turn.
Here is the Best Dream11 Team for Today IND vs ENG 1st T20I
Captain: KL Rahul
Vice-Captain: Eoin Morgan
Wicketkeeper: Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul
Batsmen: Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli, Eoin Morgan, Dawid Malan
