India vs England T20 Live Streaming

India vs England T20 Live Streaming Star Cricket ESPN HD continues as the limited over cricket begins in style at Pune. England has hardly got enough time to celebrate their long awaited test series win in India. The tight schedule of cricket has pushed them into another series but this time limited overs cricket series. England will play two T20 matches against India and then take a well deserved break for new year celebrations. After India finished their series Pakistan, England will play India again for an ODI series.

Indian team has been under scanner after regular failures in test cricket and not so impressive performances in limited over cricket after 2011 World Cup. It is high time now for team India to pull up their socks before they start losing T20 and ODI series at home. Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni never saw such a dip in his captaincy record and he has faced a lot of criticism lately. He silenced his critics with a 99 runs innings at Nagpur but he couldn't anchor India to a win. Similarly many other big names like Sachin, Zaheer, Gambhir have been criticised for bad form.

As we have seen in the past, Sehwag has again been denied a position in T20 squad. Manoj Tiwary who was initially picked for the T20 squad is out due to an injury and he is replaced by Rayudu. Injured Balaji is replaced by Vinay Kumar. As Sachin doesn't prefer to play in T20s, India may open the innings with Gambhir and Rahane. The middle order looks pretty strong with young guns Kohli, Raina, Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh. Even Ravindra Jadeja can come in handy at times with his strokeplay.

Ashok Dinda, Ravindra Awana, Vinay Kumar, etc have to take care of the pace battery whereas Ashwin and Chawla can take care of the spin department. Even part time bowlers like Yuvraj or Raina can take care of filling in the overs if one of the specialist bowler fails to perform.

England has fulfilled their dream in test series and now they need focus on T20 cricket. Their regular T20 captain Broad is out due to an injury. Eoin Morgan takes his responsibility to lead the side. Steven Finn is out due to an injury which he suffered during the test series. With the likes of Swann, Pietersen and Broad out of the squad for T20 cricket, England is providing a lot of opportunities to new players.

Finally the Subrata Roy Sahara stadium at Pune will get an opportunity to host their first ever International cricket match. It has been a home ground for IPL team Pune Warriors and crowd out there will love to watch an International match here as well. The 2nd match will be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Tickets for this match are available online on Bookmyshow.

Indian fans may have been disappointed with teams performance in the longer version of cricket. But hopefully team performs better in T20 cricket matches to rejoice the fans with some better cricketing moments that stay alive in our memories forever. Stay tuned for more online updates on India vs England cricket series.
