IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd T20I Match

KL Rahul has scored only a solitary run in this series, but given his 1500+ T20I runs at an average of over 40, he can be a punt captaincy pick for your Grand League team.

Match Details:

The 3rd of the 5-match T20I series between India and England will be played on 16th March at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM IST and local time. It will be streamed live on Star Sports Network, Jio Sports and also can be streamed on Disney+Hotstar.

Preview:

After a rare slip in the first T20I, the men in blue are back to their lethal best, as they easily brushed aside the Englishmen in the second T20I of the series. They were in the driver’s seat right from the first over, where Bhuvneshwar Kumar trapped the dangerous Jos Buttler leg before wicket.

Commendable knocks from Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan helped England get to a respectable total, and when they dismissed KL Rahul for a duck, it seemed as if a 2-0 lead is on the cards. However, a fantastic debut knock by Ishan Kishan and an equally good inning by Virat Kohli sealed the deal for the Indians. Given how they played in the last game, it will be fair to say that they will start this game with the tag of ‘favourites’.

Another player who has shut his critics down recently is Virat Kohli. After getting out for a duck in the first T20I, he scored 73 runs in the second T20I.
