IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction 5th T20I, England tour of India, 2021

IND vs ENG Dream11 PredictionProbable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of the 5th T20 match at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

India:

India has shown why there are the best at home by winning the last match and did not let the series slip away from their hands. They performed well and won the game by 8 runs.

Rohit Sharma has not scored as many runs as expected from him in the last two matches, and everyone is expecting a big inning from him in the previous game. His partner, KL Rahul, is completely out of form and struggling to score even ten runs. 

At No.3, Surya Kumar Yadav batted for the first time in International cricket and smashed fifty but was unlucky to get out for the umpire’s wrong decision. Skipper Kohli, after playing two brilliant knocks, got out cheaply in the last match. Pant has been batting decently throughout the series.

Shreyas Iyer has also played a couple of good innings with the bat at crucial times. Hardik Pandya and Sundar have not contributed much but have been performing well with the ball. Rahul Chahar played his first match and picked up some crucial wickets.

The pacers Bhuvneshwar and Shardul have been consistent at picking up wickets and at the same time controlling the flow of runs. India has a perfect chance of winning a series against the No.1 T20I team.

England:

After bossing the game in the 3rd match, England appeared to struggle in the 4th one as they couldn’t chase the total and lost the game by 8 runs.

Jason Roy has been batting well but has not been able to convert his forties into fifties. Jos Buttler, except for one inning, has not batted well in this series. Dawid Malan has been struggling very much in this series to play freely and hasn’t contributed much to the team.

Jonny Bairstow has looked in decent form and has played a couple of good innings. Ben Stokes did not get much chance to bat, but he played aggressively and almost won the game for England in the last match. Eoin Morgan batted twice in this series but wasn’t that effective as he generally is in the middle-order. 

Sam Curran has been decent in the all-rounder role, and spinner Adil Rashid has also picked up wickets consistently. Jofra Archer, after being wicketless for the last two matches, bowled brilliantly in the fourth match and picked up four wickets. Mark Wood has troubled the batsman with his pace in the initial overs, and Jordan also picked up some crucial wickets in this series.

England would want to let go of such a brilliant opportunity to win the series and give their best in the last match.
