England have announced the squad for the T20 International series against India. Test team captain Joe Root is not a part of this team. The 16-man squad includes players such as Ben Stokes, Joffrey Archer and David Malan in addition to the Karan Brothers. Let us know that England have played a Test on the tour of India, in which they have taken a 1-0 lead in the series, registering a big win under Root’s captaincy.
Butler has returned home after the first Test match against India. England won the match by 227 runs. Bairstow has been rested from the first two Tests due to England’s rotation policy. Fast bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad no longer play limited overs cricket but Joffra Archer will be available for the five-match series.
India vs England: Know whose weight is heavy before the second Test
Such is the schedule
The first Test was played between February 5 and February 9 in Chennai. Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium will also host the second Test match apart from the first match. The second Test will be played from February 13 to 17. The third and fourth Tests will be played at the world’s largest Motera Stadium (24 to 28 and four to eight March). The T20 series will begin on March 12. The remaining T20 matches will be played on 14, 16, 18 and 20 March. All these matches will be held in Motera, so one thing is certain that this new grand stadium will serve as a bio bubble for both the teams.
All ODIs will be held in Pune
Similarly, the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium of Pune will be built for the One Day Series. All the three matches of the three-match ODI series – 23, 26 and 28 – will be played at this stadium. International cricket matches will be held in India for the first time after Kovid-19. Due to the epidemic, this time the IPL was organized outside India in the United Arab Emirates.
