Teams Preview

England Preview

Experienced players like Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran have been rested for this T20I series. The trio is expected to feature for England’s upcoming Test series against India at home.

Jake Ball, Saqib Mahmood and Lewis Gregory are expected to be slotted into the final XI for this game.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the top-order trio Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Dawid Malan and captain Eoin Morgan to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the ODI series, Dawid Malan scored a half-century in the series opener but then perished for a duck in the last two matches. Left-hander will be looking to get back amongst the runs.

England Captain Eoin Morgan found form with the bat in the previous series against Sri Lanka. He will be keen to make a notable score in this opening encounter.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the pace trio of Jake Ball, Chris Jordan and Saqib Mahmood to deliver crucial breakthroughs.

Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (c), Liam Livingstone, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Jake Ball.
