India made a splendid performance to win the T20I series against England with the lead of 2-1. India won the first game by the performances of Kuldeep Yadav and KL Rahul. In the second match, Alex Hales guided England towards victory by his cameo. But in the final T20I, Rohit Sharma slammed an unbeaten hundred to cruise India towards the series victory. Here are some players from both the teams who need to perform well in this series to cement their position in the team.
- Joe Root
He is a crucial batsman for England but could not do well in the couple of T20Is and missed out the position in the third T20I. His average was above 49.82 in limited overs format. He stood among the four fabulous players, Kane Williamson, Steven Smith, and Virat Kohli. He is one of the crucial middle-order batsmen for England. His partnership was outstanding in many occasions along with Eoin Morgan. He will play this ODI series to attain stability in the team for the World cup.
- Ben Stokes
Ben Stokes is one of the crucial allrounders for India. He is the crucial player in the IPL for 2017 and was disastrous in the IPL 2018. He recovered from injury and joined the team for the third T20I against India. He was economical in the third game as a bowler and scored 14 runs in that game. He is looking forward for doing great in the ODI series and strengthen his position in the squad for the upcoming world cup.
- Kuldeep Yadav
He did a splendid performance to cruise India towards victory in the first T20I. He stood as the first chinaman bowler to make a five-wicket haul in the single T20I. He is looking to avenge the English batsmen for being slammed in the second and third T20Is. He will be the crucial player for the team in the upcoming series against Australia and the upcoming world cup.
- Umesh Yadav
He is one of the crucial bowlers in the Indian team in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. He did consistently in the T20I series and managed to pick a few wickets during the death overs. He played his debut match in 2010 and played his last ODI in September 2017. He played only 71 ODIs in seven years but expects to prove himself in the upcoming ODI series against England.
- KL Rahul
KL Rahul scored 659 runs off 14 innings in the IPL 2018. He scored an unbeaten hundred off 56 balls in the first T20I against England to guide India towards the win. He was marked as a test player earlier but now he is one of the crucial players in the team for all the formats. He is expected to play for No.3 or No.4 in the team for World Cup 2019 by performing great in the ODI series against England.
