India have superbly bounced back after the 7-wicket thrashing in the rescheduled Test and clinched the 3-match T20I series after taking an unassailable 2-0 lead on Saturday. It was India's 4th straight T20I series win over England. After winning the first T20I by 50 runs, India won the second match by 49 runs in Birmingham. The third and final T20I will be played in Nottingham from 7 PM IST on Sunday.
India haven't lost any of their last five T20I matches, while England have won just one out of their last five matches in the shortest format. Overall, India and England have clashed against each other in a total of 21 T20Is. India have won 12 out of these and England nine. India have also won each of their last four T20Is against England and a win in the third T20I, will be India's fifth consecutive against the Three Lions. As we gear up for the 3rd T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the ENG vs IND 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the ENG vs IND head-to-head contest.
Ahead of the first T20I, we had predicted that India would hit a lot of boundaries on the England tour as a second-string India side scored as many as 13 fours in the first T20I warm-up match against Derbyshire. In the second warm-up T20I against Northamptonshire, India hit a total of 14 fours. India had warmed up really well ahead of the 3-match T20I series and the entry of the star players from the second T20I was going to add more flavour to the side. Exactly the same happened as India hit as many as 23 fours in the first T20I, and in the second T20I they hit 17 boundaries despite three wickets in the form of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant in quick succession. The star-studded Indian batting line-up consisting of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja and Suryakumar Yadav can make life difficult for any opposition. Rohit Sharma (301) holds the record for second-highest number of fours in the T20I format. He is one of the only two players to hit over 300 fours in the format. Rohit Sharma hit five fours in the first T20I and three in the second. Pant opened alongside Rohit in the second T20I and hit as many as four fours during his 15-ball stay at the crease. Suryakumar Yadav could hit only two boundaries on Saturday but in the first T20I in Southampton, he managed to hit four boundaries in 19 balls. Hardik Pandya, who hit a match-winning fifty in the first T20I hit six fours in the first match. He is expected to come up with yet another firework in the final T20I. Ravindra Jadeja also shined with five fours off 29 balls in the second T20I. The third T20I can also witness none other than Virat Kohli giving his best to get going in England. The former India captain has failed to impress in the fifth Test and the one T20I he has played on the tour. The star batter has a knack of bouncing back from pressure situations. A vintage Kohli innings can easily witness seven to eight fours coming from his bat all alone. The firepower and the red hot form of the Indian batting line-up makes it obvious that India will easily manage to hit over 15.5 fours in the third T20I. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.94 for India to hit over 13.5 fours from the ENG vs IND 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are my top two player betting tips for the ENG vs IND 3rd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
India captain Rohit Sharma is one of the three batters to score over 3000 T20I runs in T20I cricket. He has played a total of 127 T20Is and scored 3368 runs at an average of 32.38. The 35-year-old has four hundreds and 26 fifties to his name in the format at the international level. The Nagpur-born has played a total of 386 T20 matches and scored 10218 runs at an average of 31.36. The opener has played a total of 13 T20I matches against England and scored 372 runs at an average of 37.20. In England, Rohit has played seven T20I matches against Jos Buttler's men and scored 202 runs at an average of 33.66. In his last seven T20I innings, the right-hand batsman has scores of 31, 24, 5, 1, 44, 7 and 19, 40, 56, 55, 48 and 56 in his last 10 T20I innings. Rohit Sharma missed out on the rescheduled fifth Test after contracting Covid-19, but has looked good ever since coming out of quarantine. In the first T20I, the 35-year-old scored 24 off just 14 balls, hitting as many as five cracking boundaries. In the second T20I, he got a start again, scoring 31 runs off 20 balls. He smashed three fours and two sixes en route to his 31 runs. A big score from Rohit Sharma is just lurking around the corner and Sunday could be the day Rohit Sharma chooses to go berserk. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 3.6 for Rohit Sharma to emerge as India's top batter from the ENG vs IND 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Virat Kohli has long not been in his best of forms but a fighter like him can never be written off. After scoring 11 and 20 runs in the fifth Test, Kohli returned to feature for India in the second ODI before getting out for one run after mistiming a shot and giving a catch to Jason Roy at backward point off debutant Richard Gleeson's bowling. Virat Kohli has scores of 1, 52, 17, 2*, 9, 57, 80*, 1, 77*, 73* in his last 10 T20I outings. Virat Kohli has played a total of 98 T20is and scored 3297 runs at an average of 50.72. With the Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2022 fast approaching, the 33-year-old star will look to get back amongst runs as soon as possible. India have already won the series and that means that in the absence of that pressure, Virat Kohli can take his time to settle down properly before playing his shot. In England, the right-hander has played 18 T20I matches and scored 578 runs at an average of 41.28. In England, he averages 36.20 from six matches. On Sunday we might witness a Virat Kohli special after a long time. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and grab the odds of 1.87 for Virat Kohli to score over 25.5 runs from the ENG vs IND 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
