Win the toss and win the match! That seems to be the trend that the T20 series between India and England has followed so far. All three matches have been won by the team that has won the toss and opted to bat second.
Now, with England leading 2-1 and with a great chance to win the series, will the toss be the ultimate decider between the teams? India made some strange choices in the third match that did not pay off. England was at full-strength in the previous match and seems a lot more settled.
Will India continue to experiment even at the cost of the series or is this match going to throw up some more surprises?
The shift to a red soil surface did not bring India the reward it was hoping for and it now finds itself in a must-win situation. Can India win this match and keep the series alive or will England continue to run away with it?
India vs England 4th T20 2021 is going to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on the 18th of March 2021.
India is struggling to find its best combination ahead of the T20 World Cup and that is a concern. These two remaining matches are the only ones that India will play ahead of the World Cup. Yes, they have the IPL but every player is playing a different role there.
KL Rahul has failed for three matches in a row but has been given a vote of confidence from the Indian captain. We assume he will continue to keep his place in the team with Rohit Sharma as the other opener for this match.
Ishan Kishan batted at number three in the previous match, pushing down Kohli to number four. It will be interesting to see if that continues because Virat Kohli is quite simply one of the best batsmen in this format of the game. For the time being, we think Ishan Kishan will continue to get a chance to impress.
Rishab Pant seems like a lock at number five right now and that leaves Shreyas Iyer hopelessly out of position. It is a bit hard on him but his position seems the most in jeopardy right now. The team management could well replace Iyer with Suryakumar Yadav to try and add more power to the side.
Hardik Pandya is back as an all-rounder while the bowling lineup of Sundar, Bhuvaneshwar, Chahal, and Thakur seems set also. This is not India’s best-bowing lineup. They are missing Bumrah, Jadeja, and Shami.
Maybe Navdeep Saini gets an opportunity to add some pace to the attack and emulate what England has been doing so successfully.
India is unsure of its best eleven, its best batting lineup, and is missing its best bowlers. Virat Kohli, though, is in top-form, Rohit Sharma is back, and the conditions are more in its favor than England’s.
Rohit Sharma, SA Yadav, V Kohli, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, SN Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Chahar.
A fantastic performance from Mark Wood at the top set the tone for England. He got both the openers out cheaply before adding a third wicket later in the inning. His express pace has unsettled the Indian batsmen and the difference his return made to England’s attack was immediately obvious.
Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Ben Stokes, and Sam Curran round out a very strong bowling lineup. England’s tactics have been to hit the batsmen with pace upfront along with a mixture of leg-spin.
Stokes and Curran have been given the responsibility to keep things tight in the middle.
There is immense wicket-taking potential in this attack and the fact that have taken three or more wickets in the powerplay in the two matches they have won proves it.
England really does not need to change anything in its bowling attack unless one of the players ends up injured.
The batting performance was headlined by Jos Buttler. We now have Buttler, Roy, and Bairstow in great form. All three of these batsmen are aggressive against the spinners and difficult to bowl at.
Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan, and Ben Stokes have been decent without being outstanding so far but their chance may come. England may lack a big-hitting finisher in these conditions but overall its batting has tremendous depth and talent to call upon.
The only we see this batting lineup being tested is by the loss of early wickets.
Jason Roy, Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, BA Stokes, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, AU Rashid, Mark Wood.
The toss is going to be very important as we have seen already. All three matches have been won by the team that has won the toss and chased. You should definitely take the toss into consideration while placing your bets. Just going with the chasing team does not seem like a bad option at this point!

The conditions in the previous match were a bit more spin-friendly and had lesser bounce than in the first couple of matches. This should theoretically help the spinners but it appeared as if the dew nullified that advantage in the second inning.
The ball comes on to the bat better as the dew increases and ends up being a significant advantage. It will take a truly spectacular first-inning batting effort to try and overcome the dew factor.
England appears to be the better T20 team and certainly is a lot more settled. However, don’t just count India out yet. We have yet to see KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma (two of the best T20 batsmen in the world) make an impact. India just needs to do a few things right to be an even stronger team and push England to the limit.
We think there is a great chance of India winning this match and taking the series to a decider.
Bet on India to win.
It appears as if India’s openers are more circumspect to start out with than England. Even if England loses an early wicket or two, it does not put the brake on the scoring. This is a good bet with good returns and a very good chance of coming through.
This is an amazing return to get on a batsman like Rohit Sharma, however, this is a risky bet. You can win a lot of money with even a small stake and that is what we advise you to do in this situation. The returns make it worth the risk and considering the form that Rohit Sharma has been off-late, we sense a big inning from him is around the corner.
