Team India held their nerves and levelled the T20I series in the 4th T20I. The two evenly balanced sides will clash in the series decider now which is expected to be a close contest. India will be hoping for an improved show with the bat in the first powerplay whereas England will be keen to make a statement and clinch the series.
Head To Head
Overall- 18 matches
England won- 9
India won- 9
It will be hot and humid with absolutely no chance of any rain during the match.
As witnessed in the first 4 T20Is the best time to bat at Ahmedabad is the second half. Shot making is extremely challenging in the first half as the pitch continues to be dry and on the slower side. Team batting second will certainly have an advantage as the ball skids on later on because of dew which makes scoring runs easy.
Injury and Availability News
No injury concerns for both sides ahead of the match.
