The home side will be looking to bounce back in the series as they did in the second T20I when India and England will take on each other in the fourth game of the 5 match series. England on the other hand will be looking to seal the series with yet another win. Currently, England are 2-1 up in the series.

Match Prediction :
If we look at the 3 matches so far in this series, all wins have been kind of comprehensive ones. England won first and third match by 8 wickets while India registered a 7 wickets victory in the second match. As far as the audiences perspective is concerned, the fans would want to see competitive cricket and so do I.
As far as my views are concerned, I give it a 50/50 contest but it will be ideal if India come out victorious to go into the last match as a decider.
Indian camp will have some issues to sort out though. String of failures from KL Rahul is something to worry for the home side. Rohit is back in the side but couldn’t get runs in the previous match. Some speculations are being made on whether Rahul will be dropped but I think Kohli will go with Rahul and Rohit as openers. Ishan Kishan was brilliant in 2nd match and will find a place in the eleven. India’s spin bowling hasn’t clicked so far in this series. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar needs to be amongst the wickets if India are to give a fightback.
Mark Wood was superb with the ball in hand in last match. Jofra Archer is another big weapon for the English side. England looks pretty solid at the moment if we look at the current form. Guys like Buttler and Roy have scored crucial runs at the top of the order.
India Probable XI :
