The India T20I Squad contains a host of names with which we are familiar from the IPl

Virat Kohli(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav

The England T20I squad is less successful than the ODI version but still packed with match winners:
Eoin Morgan(c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey

Odds for the series are England 2/5 India 2/1 and the draw 2/1.For the first match at Old Trafford England are 11/10 and India 21/10.

England no doubt should be favourites at home, India are generally poor travellers but it’s a hot dry summer and conditions in which India typically struggle – green pitches, overcast overhead conditions, are going to be absent. On likely blameless pitches India should be capable of going toe to toe with England and this 2/1 for the series with Bet365 and 21/10 the first match with Ladbrokes are value bets
