IND vs ENG Today Match Prediction India vs England dream11 team 1st ODI 22 March

They have won a closely fought T20I and test series against England and now they will be up against the world champions in England who are without their prime bowler in Jofra Archer. This will be a stern test for England but they have their batting order intact and India are without Jasprit Bumrah which should make this series even stevens.

England will be playing for crucial points in ODI super league and they have lost their previous series to Australia in England.

Lets take a look at IND vs ENG dream11 prediction

IND vs ENG dream11 match today

In IND vs ENG today match prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

India (IND)

  • + Indian top 6 is settled and the core is starting to give enough confidence as the Indian management is finally backing its players at fixed slots.
  • + The return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar proved vital in their T20I campaign and he will be looking to continue his good form in ODIs as well.
  • – The form of Yuzvendra Chahal is a worrying factor as he is looking out of sorts.
  • – Hardik Pandya was restricted using short balls in T20Is and England will be looking to employ that tactic in ODIs as well.

England (ENG)

  • + They have a power packed batting line up with equal amount of left and right hand batsmen.
  • + Sam Billings was playing on a different level in the recently concluded Australian series and him along with Jos Buttler will be a treat to watch.
  • – Tom Curran had a bad game in the only T20I he played and will be interesting to see how he responds in ODIs.
  • – Their fifth bowling option is a little fragile.

IND playing 11 (Likely)

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, T Natarajan

Who will be man of the match today?

Lets take a look at some of the important players from both the sides in IND vs ENG dream11 prediction

Rohit Sharma: He is in the peak of his prowess at the moment. He missed the Australian series and that was one of the main reasons why India lost the series. One can expect the in form Rohit Sharma to smack English bowlers to all the parts of the ground in the 1st ODI.

Sam Billings: He has reinvented his batting in the last year and that’s the reason why he even got an IPL contract. He might play higher up the order in tomorrow’s game and can expect him to score handful of runs.

Shardul Thakur: England batsmen might thrash him but he can also pick wickets in the process just like how he picked in the T20I series and ended up as the leading wicket taker.

Mark Wood: He rattled most of the Indian batsmen except Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He is a solid vice captain option in grand leagues.

Other picks: Virat Kohli, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan are all good picks.

Today IND vs ENG match score: Team batting first is expected to score around 300
