Recent Match Report – England vs India 3rd T20I 2022

Toss England chose to bat vs India

England captain Jos Buttler opted to bat for a change and made two changes in an attempt to avoid a series whitewash against India. It was the first time since September 2016 that England chose to bat in a T20I; on the previous 26 occasions they had won the toss, they had opted to bowl.

India, meanwhile, rung in four changes again, trying out younger players in place of some proven names.

“Lots of people assume chasing is the way to go in T20 cricket, but on certain surfaces, batting first may be beneficial,” Buttler said at the toss. England brought in Phil Salt and Reece Topley in place of Sam Curran and Matt Parkinson. Salt would bat at No. 4, Buttler said, while adding, “we’ve been disappointed with the way we’ve batted, this is a chance to put it right.”

India left out Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal for Shreyas Iyer, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik and Ravi Bishnoi.

It was another sunny day in Nottingham with no rain in the forecast.

England: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Phil Salt, 5 Liam Livingstone, 6 Harry Brook, 7 Moeen Ali, 8 David Willey, 9 Chris Jordan, 10 Richard Gleeson, 11 Reece Topley

India: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Rishabh Pant (wk), 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Suryakumar Yadav, 6 Dinesh Karthik, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Harshal Patel, 9 Avesh Khan, 10 Umran Malik, 11 Ravi Bishnoi
