After an enthralling collision in the second Twenty20 International (T20I), both India and England face each other in summit clash at Bengaluru. The match at Nagpur had every human emotion mixed into one, which sets up the third and final T20I of the series as a nail-biting affair. Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra and luck played a massive factor in India drawing level after losing the first T20I at Kanpur. Eoin Morgan must be ruing his stars that saw England asphyxiate from a comfortable position. The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is known to be a featherbed for the batsmen, which the likes of Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Morgan will cherish playing on. Either side, going into Bengaluru contest, have equal chances of trumping one another, given the following key battles:

Virat Kohli vs. Chris Jordan: Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammates Kohli and Jordan go head-to-head yet again, where the latter got the better of the former. Jordan picked up Kohli’s wicket at Nagpur using his prime weapon, that is, change of pace. Jordan, known as a death-over specialist, outfoxed his former RCB skipper at a time when India were on the lookout for runs. Bengaluru ground is well renowned as King Kohli’s fortress, wherein the batsman has scored oodles of runs. It will be interesting to see whether Jordan gets the Indian captain to frown or does Kohli get the final laugh over the English pacer. India slip to No. 4 spot in ICC ODI team rankings; New Zealand jump to No. 3

Yuvraj Singh vs. Moeen Ali: Playing Moeen Ali is no piece of cake, and Yuvraj must acknowledge this fact. The way Yuvraj gave his wicket in the second T20I was horrendous to say the least, going for a sweep off a delivery that held its line. Yuvraj must stay for longer time in the middle in order to execute such reckless approach. Moeen, on the other hand, displays good variation in pace and length to baffle any batsmen. Moeen’s track record against left-handers is poor, which Yuvraj might want to take into consideration when these two clash in Bengaluru.

KL Rahul vs. Tymal Mills: Pin-up player from India’s match at Nagpur, Rahul will be expected to rake up yet another storm at his home turf. His cricketing acumen is creditable, but where the young lad lacks is his temperament. On the flipside, Mills has showed that he has the skills to be a brilliant T20 bowler, with his raw pace and ability to extract bounce. Mills still looks undercooked for international cricket, but has the fierce to excel under any conditions if his body keeps up. Rahul, against Mills, scored just 5 runs facing 6 balls. Mills gave absolutely no room to Rahul, where the latter looked in a bit of discomfort. Bumrah urges Morgan to move on post umpiring errors in 2nd T20I

Jasprit Bumrah vs. weight of expectations: 120 billion people will be hoping for Bumrah to come good once again in the third T20I against England. Bumrah, with his unimpeachable length and level-headedness, exhibited composure of the highest order to defend 8 runs in the final over at Nagpur. Having already created a place for himself in the minds of the Indian fans, he will be under enormous pressure. In the past few days, many have been talking about his match-winning spell, which inescapably would have created an epitome of thoughts in his mind. His struggle to pool the right information from the trivial can be an interesting sight to witness, in a crunch situation, at M. Chinnaswamy stadium.

Ashish Nehra vs. England batsmen: For a bowler, who finds age just a number, has continuously impressed everyone with his performance time and again. Nehra, making yet another comeback from injury, showed rustiness at Kanpur, but quickly got in the groove at Nagpur and rattled English batsmen like only he could. The likes of Sam Billings, Jason Roy and Ben Stokes fell to the Nehra’s art of bowling. He deceived the batsmen with variation in pace as well as length. Roy, in particular, can take the attack on any opponent and will be expected to do similar duties. Nehra, with the old ball, was spot on most of the times. He, however, could also be targeted by Morgan, Stokes and Moeen if not on the mark.
