Ahmedabad: Today, the fifth and final T20 is to be played between India and England at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The fifth T20 will be like a final as both India and England are equal at 2-2. The first and third T20 was won by England, while India won the second and fourth T20. For the first time in the fourth T20, a team won by batting first when England failed to chase 185 runs.
Both teams will try their best to win today as it is seen as the practice of the T20 World Cup to be held in October. KL Rahul reached the score of Digit for the first time in the last T20 match. However, he failed in the last match and lost his wicket on a score of 14 runs. But even if Virat Kohli’s post-match conference is seen, KL Rahul is sure to play even today.
Today’s India team is unlikely to change much, but in the last match, Axar Patel can play the match in place of Washington Sundar, who conceded more than 50 runs in his 4 overs due to dew. Virat Kohli had a slight thigh issue in the last match but later cleared that it is not too big and will be fit for Fifth Math.
Although the England team lost the last match, there is little scope for much change in the England team; even Eion Morgan is looking very happy with his team.
What to expect from Fifth T20
In the fifth T20 match, the effect of dew can be seen due to which the batting will become easy with time, and the captain who wins the toss will want to chase. The fourth match will also be remembered for the umpire mistake in which the on-field and third umpire made a lot of mistakes in their decisions.
You can watch this match live on Star Network and Hotstar. Doordarshan will also telecast it live.
