England face India in the third T20 international on Saturday, July 10 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham from 7:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
England lost a closely fought T20I series in the Caribbean against West Indies. Jason Roy and Adil Rashid were the positives for the Englishmen in that series.
The English cricket team were convincingly beaten by the Indians in both previous matches in the ongoing series. The hosts were beaten by 50 runs and 49 runs respectively in the first and second T20Is. Chris Jordan and Moeen Ali have been the top performers in the otherwise disappointing matches for the Englishmen. Debutant Richard Gleeson was also impressive with the ball in the last match.
India shared the T20I series 2-2 with South Africa at home before winning both the T20Is in Ireland. India started the ongoing series with a massive win in the first T20I and continued in the same vein of form in the last match. Ravindra Jadeja’s 29-ball 46 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s 3-fer gave the visitors an unassailable 2-0 lead in this ongoing series.
England and India are expected to field the same playing XI for the final T20I of the series.

England: Chris Jordan will be the one to watch out for from the hosts. The 33-year-old picked up four wickets in the last match to take his tally to six wickets in two matches in this series. He was also handy with the bat in the first T20I, scoring 26 runs.
India: Hardik Pandya will be the top pick in this encounter. He had a very good season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and has followed it up with his all-round performance in this series.

England vs India 3rd T20I prediction
India were dominant in the opening two matches of this T20 international series against England and their recent form in this format also gives them an edge in this encounter.
However, the English cricket team has been in good form at home before this series in T20Is and also recently beat the visitors in the Test match at Edgbaston. They are likely to come up with a good performance in the final match of this series.
