England Team are ready to take on Team India in a five-match T20I series.
After facing a defeat in the four-match Test series, the England cricket team are all set to take on India in the limited-overs series, starting from March 12 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. They would certainly try to bounce back.
However, veteran player Eoin Morgan will replace Joe Root as the captain of the side as many other players also return as well. Players like Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy and Moeen Ali have already come and joined the team. And, former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta reveals that Malan will be the key of their batting order as well.
“Their batting order is absolutely phenomenal, especially Dawid Malan”: Deep Dasgupta on England Team
“Their batting order is absolutely phenomenal, especially Dawid Malan. They have Morgan, then the two openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow.
Dawid Malan is the top-ranked T20I batsman, he has been in incredible form. Malan’s main role will be to be there till the end. While he has the ability to play the long innings, he also scores runs at a fair click. So he is the glue in that batting order, he keeps them going,” Dasgupta said on Sports Today.
“England not just a formidable team but also one of the favourites to win the T20 World Cup. The way that they have been played both the shorter formats – T20s & ODIs.
Morgan is a really good captain, the way he leads that side. Maybe the best playing XI wasn’t available for the Test series but they have made sure their best XI is available for the ODIs and T20Is,” he further added about the England team.
“When you look at their batsmen, the biggest advantage that England has is the number of all-rounders in the squad. They don’t have to worry about the batting because of the all-rounders that they have,” Dasgupta concluded.
After the five-match T20I series, both India and England will take on each other in the One Day international series in Pune.
