|England v India 2014|
ScheduleSunday, 7 September 2014 at 14:00 GMT / 15:00 UK / 19:30 IST
The Englishmen were able to defeat the Blue Shirts in the fifth and final One Day international by 41 runs that can boost their morale for the T20 encounter. Both nations have played seven games in the shortest version of the game, the home side has grabbed four and the rest were won by the tourists. MS Dhoni will lead the Indian side and Eoin Morgan will be marshalling the troops of England.
Jason Roy was the highest run scorer of the T20 Blast 2014 and will most likely get the English cap while Eoin Morgan, Alex Hales and Joe Root are the commanding batsmen. Ravi Bopara and Moeen Ali are their ace all-rounders who will be backed up by Chris Jordan, Tim Bresnan and Steven Finn.
Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni were the main batsmen for the Men in Blue in the recently concluded ODI series. The bowling department will comprise Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
