India won the third T20I against England on their home soil by 7 wickets and won the three t20i series by the lead of 2-1. Thus they kept on the voyage of T20i series victories going. They won the first T20I by eight wickets at Manchester and the second one was won by England by 5 wickets. India won the third T20I by 7 wickets to bag the title.
Former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly wrote that though India lost the second T20I, they won the series in the way they wanted and that they exhibited the momentum and the authority throughout the series. Virat and his team were going on in a way that they can win the matches in the shortest format at any consequences. Even the stronger batting line-up like England had to dangle to make a move to encounter the Indian attack.
He said that he is witnessing the heat of the Indian summer in England. Though he was visiting England for the past 20-22 years, he never saw the warmth since all these years like in the current season. He felt that England is one of the strongest opponents but the current wicket is like in India and the grounds are batting-friendly and the spinners can do well on the English wickets. The crucial factor in this series is the way England can encounter the Indian spinners. Ganguly played 113 test matches for India.
Ganguly said that both the sides are strong in their batting side but Indian bowling is more consistent when compared to their opponents. The pacer Umesh Yadav is in best of his form and Kuldeep and Chahal are irreplaceable and together they can collapse the delicate English middle-order batsmen.
He was in all praise of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Hardik Pandya who played the pivotal part in the series victory against England. He said that Rohit Sharma is one of the greatest match winners for India in the shortest format along with Virat Kohli. KL Rahul can be entrusted by Virat Kohli in any of the batting positions and Hardik Pandya’s all-round performance is worth mentioning. Hardik is a fearless cricketer and together they can bring a glorious summer to England.
