A Chance for some emerging young guns in T20I Format and return of experienced players.
For the Indians, some of the great talents like Mandeep Singh, Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal will be looking for a spot in the playing XI but all depends on the Skipper and team management. Also, the team will see the return of large experiences like Ashish Nehra and Suresh Raina.
Mandeep Singh could be seen opening for the team with KL Rahul as there’re no other players who could open. So this is fixed place fro Mandeep Singh. But Yuzvendra Chahal could find it difficult to make it to the playing XI as there’re players like Ashwin and Jadeja who are fixed on their spots in playing XI. Also, Chances for Rishabh Pant are 50-50.
Also, Suresh Raina will play for his experience but he has to fight for his spot in the squad and so is with Ashish Nehra.
For the English team, Liam Dawson and Tymal Mills will be seen as new faces in the English international team. However, Chris Jordan performed really well in the ICC World Cup T20I. So, his spot is already fixed in the team’s Playing XI.
