Its England vs India 5 match T20 series. Should be an absolutely terrific series and the 1st match being held today.
Both teams have strong batting lineups with players capable of winning matches of their own such as Rohit Sharma , KL Rahul , Pant , Hardik Pandya and Kohli from Indian side and Buttler, Bairstow, Roy , Morgan , Stokes and Archer from England line up .
England won the toss and rightly elected to bowl and as Morgan pointed it out, the wicket looks good for batting and the dew may set in later in the game . Kohli also was inclined on bowling 1st .
The big news from India is that Rohit Sharma is rested for 1st couple of games.
The pitch is said to be a hard surface and abrasive as pointed out by the star sports commentators . It may assist spin also .
The teams :
India (Playing XI): KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal
