The 3rd T20I of the England Tour of India 2021 will see the clash between India and England at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Motera, Ahmedabad on Tuesday, 16 March 2021. Keep reading to find out the England Tour of India 2021 3nd T20I IND vs ENG Today Match Prediction.
As expected, the hosts bounced back after a loss in the first game. They seem to have developed a habit of losing the first matches of a series. But they manage to make a comeback to stay alive. This is exactly what has happened on this tour as well. First, in the Test series, England won the opening Test. But India went on to win the next 3 matches to claim the series. Then, the visitors defeated the Men in Blue in the first T20I. However, the hosts once again pulled up their socks and won the next game.
On Sunday, Virat Kohli won the toss for a change. He elected to field first which was no surprise to anyone. To add to the fortune, Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed Jos Buttler for a duck in the first over. Jason Roy and Dawid Malan added 63 runs for the second wicket. But the innings couldn’t get the needed kick to push the scoring rate up. There were 4 scores in the 20s from the English middle order. But the Indian bowlers bowled beautifully at the death. They conceded just 35 runs in the last 5 overs to restrict the total to 164/6 from 20 overs.
The Indian national cricket team had a poor start to the chase as Sam Curran began with a wicket-maiden, accounting for the scalp for KL Rahul. However, the joy was short-lived as the debutant Ishan Kishan went after the bowling in the powerplay. He was looking in hardly any pressure of his first international game and kept smacking every bowler out of the park. Virat Kohli played second fiddle to the left-hander who notched up a half-century on debut. When Ishan got out in the 10th over, India’s score had already reached 94. Kohli then took the matters into his own hands. The captain found support from Rishabh Pant and then Shreyas Iyer to take the team home in the 18th over.
