A 5 match T20 series between India and England will commence from today as the two teams will lock horn against each other at Ahmedabad for the first match of the series.
India will be on a high after a 3-1 victory in the 4 match Test series recently. Having said that, England are the top ranked team in the shortest version of the game T20. Similar to the test matches, the playing conditions are expected to favor the spinners. The likes of Chahal, Sundar from India and Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali from England might be successful if that happens.
I would give it 60-40 in favor of the home side as far as the result of the match is concerned. However, England are a very good side and can disappoint the home fans by starting the T20 series with a win.
