England Team News
England’s middle order failed to capitalise upon the bright start provided by Jos Buttler and Jason Roy in the first innings. Test skipper Joe Root has been under the scanner, having underperformed in the limited-overs format lately.
All-rounder David Malan might replace the right hander in the upcoming T20I, adding more value to the bench.
Playing XI (Last Match): Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett
India Team News
There is no doubt whatsoever about India’s combination in the 2nd T20I against England, especially the batting line up. However, going by Virat Kohli’s experimentation policy, Deepak Chahar might be drafted into the scheme of the things.
Playing XI (Last Match): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Suresh Raina, Lokesh Rahul, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
Top Funtasy Picks
England: Jos Buttler – Buttler’s last 5 T20 innings – 69(46), 67(26), 51(39), 82(58), 95(60)*. Back him up for the impending T20I.
India: KL Rahul – Rahul averages an astronomical 58.13 in T20s this year. Picking him would be a no-brainer.
Punt Pick: Dawid Malan – The budding all-rounder could have a go-ahead in place of Joe Root.
