India will play England in the fourth T20I match of the five-match series. India is in a must-win situation in the series after losing the third T20I. In the last T20I, they fell 15-20 runs short after being thrashed by the visitors by 8 wickets with 10 balls to spare. In the first three games, they failed three different opening options.
Given Lokesh Rahul’s struggles at the top, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan are expected to open the 4th T20I. Suryakumar Yadav, who was unexpectedly benched in the third T20I, could fill in for Lokesh Rahul. Virat Kohli’s return to form is a massive boost for the team, and he’s likely to keep the dream run going in the remaining games.
On the other hand, England continues to demonstrate why they are the best T20 team in the world. England took a 2-1 lead in the series thanks to Vice-Captain Jos Buttler’s explosive unbeaten 83* runs from 52 balls. At the moment, their lethal fast bowling unit is causing India problems.
The skipper deserves a lot of praise for the way he has led the side and made some outstanding bowling changes. With one match remaining, they will try to take control of the series. Both teams are evenly matched, and the winner will be determined by who performs best on any given day.
It will be sweltering in Ahmedabad during the day, with a maximum temperature of 39 degrees Celsius, and it will be between 29 to 35 degrees Celsius in the evening. For this match, there is no risk of precipitation.
The two teams will compete on a competitive track, with the pacers receiving plenty of assistance. Although the new ball should swing around, it also has a bit of extra bounce, which should keep Mark Wood and Shardul Thakur interested. The spinners would need to vary their lines and lengths to make the most of the conditions, despite the pitch being slightly slower. Wickets in hand would be critical for either side, with the average at this venue being 160-170. Teams have preferred to chase after winning the toss, and this match should be no different.
