Currently a wicket down, India are en route to posting a strong target for England, in the fifth and final T20I, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The visitors initially won the toss and elected to bowl. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are currently batting for India, and are adding more runs to the scoreboard. Opener Rohit Sharma gave India a brilliant start, registering a half-century. He was dismissed by Ben Stokes. Also, KL Rahul has been dropped for the decider with T Natarajan roped into the playing XI for India. With the series level at 2-2, India will be aiming to win the final T20I and end the series on a good note ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup. England will be trying to build some consistency with the bat, and hope that their bowlers leak fewer runs. Jofra Archer and Mark Wood have been in good form for Eoin Morgan’s side, but haven’t been supported properly by Chris Jordan. (LIVE SCORECARD)
