India vs England (IND vs ENG) T20 Series 2021 Schedule, Squad: India square off against a well-rounded England in a five-match T20 International series starting on Friday. For India, the primary aim will be to get an idea of his core group of players going into the ICC T20 World Cup in October.

Skipper Virat Kohli couldn’t have hoped for a better opposition than a world-class English white-ball side under Eoin Morgan, ready to be way more challenging on flatter tracks which promise a run-feast.

Ravi Shastri and Kohli need to decide who will be Rohit Sharma’s opening partner on Friday when the two sides play the first T20I. The choice is down to KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan.

Rahul’s selection in any white ball playing XI is a no-brainer but then there is Dhawan, who has been a terrific performer at global events and one of the senior-most in the side. If Kohli decides to accommodate Dhawan, then he will have to push Rahul down at No.4 as the Bengaluru man’s place in the playing XI at this point of time is non-negotiable.
