England and India have already played out a grueling Test Series that started well for the visitors but ended completely in favor of the hosts. Now, the action shifts to the T20 series, and with the T20 World Cup just a few months away, this series is equally as important.

IND vs ENG Toss Prediction
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There was a lot of dew in the Pink ball test that was played here and so the same can be expected for this match as well. Chasing might prove to be a big advantage and must be considered while placing your bets.
The weather conditions are good for cricket and the entire focus is going to be on the pitch. We saw a big improvement in the surface from the third to the fourth Test match but spin always played a big part. For the T20’s, we think a flatter surface that is going to be rolled much more offer the batsmen a lot more to work with is likely.
The bounce in the surface should be pretty good and we think there are going to be lots of runs scored. A total of around 170-180 should be seen as par batting first
The pitch won’t be similar to what we saw in the Tests. It will be flat and the ball will come on nicely. It may get slow in the second inning but if they’re dew, the ball will skid and come on nicely.
