India vs England – 1st T20I Betting Tips

India and England will face off in the first T20I of the five-match series in Ahmedabad on Friday.

The home team will be coming in this match high-on-confidence after securing a thumping 3-1 win in the recently concluded Test series.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping to see the players carry that momentum forward in the shortest format of the game as well.

On the other hand, the visitors will be coming in the series to restore their pride after being humiliated in the five-day format.

The team management will be hoping that the arrival of fresh players will help in restoring some confidence for the upcoming contest.

Both teams have faced off 14 times in the 20-over format before and both emerged victorious on seven occasions.

However, in the last five matches, it is advantage team India as they’ve won on four occasions and suffered just a solitary defeat.

India Form and Team News:

The home team is going in with some news faces in the shorter format but there are seven players in the squad who were present in the five-day format contests as well.

On the batting front, hosts will be once again relying on the likes of captain Virat Kohli, his deputy and star opening batsman Rohit Sharma, his partner Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul to score bulk of the runs.

The presence of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya will pose a big threat for the visiting team as he is not only capable of turning the fixture on its head in the final stages while batting but he is also more than capable of claiming important wickets as well.

On the bowling front, India will be relying on the likes of spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel who will be accompanied by pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur to produce timely breakthroughs.

England Form and Team News:

The visitors have a very different looking squad for the 20-over format compared to the one who was battered in the five-day format.

One concerning news for England is that their captain Eoin Morgan is currently sick with disturbed stomach and is doubtful for the opening game of the series.

In the likely absence of their regular captain, the visitors’ batting department will be heavily relying on the likes of star wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler, explosive opening batsman Jason Roy and star all-rounder Ben Stokes to score bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan and Sam Curran to produce timely breakthroughs and put the home team under pressure.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams have made a number of changes in their respective squads after a feisty four-Test series.

With those changes, on the paper at least, England appear to be a stronger unit as they are more experienced compared to the home team.

With the pitches likely to be more favorable for batsmen in the 20-over format, the contest becomes even more of an equal one and therefore, the prediction is for England to win the first match and go 1-0 up in the five-match series.

Tip 1: Dawid Malan impressive form in the T20 format

Dawid Malan has been the most bankable performer for England in the T20 format. Since Feb 2019, Left-hander has topped the batting charts for England with 605 runs at a strike rate of 149.01. During this period, Malan has scored one century and five half-centuries for England.

He continued his rich vein of form for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League. So we are backing Malan to score 30 or more [email protected]


Expect England to edge past India in this opening game of the T20I series.
