India Vs England Betting Tips 12/3/21
- This is the opening match in a best of five T20 series, with preparation on this years T20 World Cup the prime focus of both sides.
- The series represents a great chance for both sides to fine tune their starting XIs, and for England, play on different surfaces.
- The England team is by and large a very different side to the Test team that just got spun into a mess by India, so the majority of the players will come into this series with no baggage.
- While for players like Jonny Bairstow (in particular) and Ben Stokes, the series represents a great chance to play themselves back into some sort of form.
- India have a formidable T20 record of late, only losing 2 of their last completed 15 T20 matches.
- They’ve also recalled man of the moment Rishabh Pant for this series – it’s hard to believe he was left out!
- Shikhar Dhawan looks set to miss out for India, with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul set to open the innings.
- Given England’s recent troubles against spin, might India be tempted to make these T20 pitches slightly more challenging for England?
- It would be a good way to win the series, but with the T20 World Cup likely to be played on flatter tracks, it wouldn’t make for great preparation.
- Playing against a big hitting side like England on a flat surface would be a far better challenge for India. But such a surface would make the odds against on England look good value.
- The match looks a close one to call, so I’m going for England to get their series off to a start with a close win.
