The England team even in the absence of Jofra Archer has a lot to create terror in the mid of the opposition. The opening batting combination has the dynamic duo of Hales and Butler. Bairstow, Malan, Moeen, the middle-order looks solid too. You can get rid of all of them and Liam Livingstone is waiting to get you at the end. The team is filled with all-rounders. The presence of Ben Stokes adds immense value and experience.

The last name in the top 3 would be that of India. Though the team lost at the Asia Cup this was a wake-up call for the team that it isn’t playing to its potential. But the way India defeated Afghanistan in the last game, sent a very strong message of dominance. The team will be rooting to be back. The top 2 bowlers of Indian T20 are also back after rehab. Harshal and Bumrah have a lot of work on their shoulders. The batting has many match winners and that does look a bit sorted. Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya are key players.

Rohit Sharma(Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal.
