India vs England Preview:
England captain Eoin Morgan likened the pitch that will be used in the third T20 International to Ayers Rock, because its colour resembled that of the sandstone monolith in the heart of Australia’s Northern Territory’s arid “Red centre”.
Two different pitches have been used in the two concluded games in the five-match series so far. The black soil one used in game one suited England as it had more pace in it.
Much in contrast, India almost had the perfect game, ticking all the right boxes after their disappointing start to the series. Going too hard too soon, they reigned their instincts in, but continued with their experimentation, handing Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan maiden T20I caps. While the former didn’t get to bat in the chase of 165, Kishan shined in his maiden knock and blazed away to a half-century.
Ahmedabad saw a display of Kishan’s magic as he stuck to his natural game and his instinct to attack from the onset. That knock held him in good stead with an eye on the World Cup, given the failure of Shikhar Dhawan in the first T20I, and the dual ones of KL Rahul, who has scores of 1 and 0 so far, with Rohit Sharma still being rested.
Virat Kohli himself got among the runs after his “special chat” with AB de Villers, scoring a fifty, to once again star in a chase. Hardik Pandya getting in his quota of overs with the ball also helps India in terms of balance to play an extra batsman. Washington Sundar has shown enough versatility against the right-handers, scalping the dangerous Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, that proved restrictive in England getting away, earning a special mention from his skipper too.

India vs England SCORECARD:
Game three will see a red soil pitch being used, which could be of assistance to the spinners. Morgan reckons the pitch could worsen as the game goes on, hinting that unlike what we’ve seen so far in the series with the advantage lying with teams batting second, this one could be about batting first and posting a strong total, with little dew coming into play.
