Ind vs Eng 2021: England opt to field first in the decider, T Natarajan comes in place for KL Rahul for the Indian team

India takes on the England team in the series decider at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the 5th T20I. This has been a closely contested one between the top-2 sides of the world in this format of the game with the series being level at 2-2.

England’s captain Eoin Morgan won the toss for the 4th time this series and has opted to field first once again. The visitors have gone to the decider with an unchanged side. India has brought the left-arm pacer T Natarajan and left-out an out-of-form opener KL Rahul who had a forgettable outing in this series.

In the absence of KL Rahul, Virat Kohli is opening with his deputy Rohit Sharma with Surya Kumar Yadav retaining his spot. The experienced duo has made a great start in the powerplay overs scoring 60 runs in the first 6.
