Series Preview: After a gripping Test series between India and England, where the hosts emerged victorious by a 3-1 margin and qualified for the World Test Championship final, there’s still a limited-overs series to be played between the two sides. Come Friday, top two T20I teams will battle it out in a five-match series at the Narendra Modi Stadium. While the No.1 spot in the format is on the line in the series — if hosts win 4-1 or 5-0, they move top of the pile — the focus for India and England would be to get their team combination right ahead of the T20I World Cup.

Till now both teams have faced off in 14 T20I games, and have won seven matches each. That just goes on to show how evenly balanced both teams have been over the years, in this format, and this time, it’s no different. For England, limited-overs specialists — including skipper Eoin Morgan — have flown in, while Indian team also has gotten a makeover for the series with a host of youngsters. One would expect this to be a closely contested series, but certainly, the one where teams would look to zero in on the squads for the World Cup.
