MS Dhoni will be playing his 50th T20 International for India, his 49th as captain of the team. Coincidentally, the other captain, Eoin Morgan is also playing his 50th T20 International. The only T20 between India and England is being played at Edgbaston. England have won the toss and have elected to bat first.

Dhoni made his T20 International debut against South Africa, which was India’s first game in the format. Thereafter, he has captained India in all his games, starting from the ICC World T20 2007, which was won by India. Morgan has played a few T20 Internationals for Ireland, but in 2009, he shifted to England and played for them at the World T20. Since then, he has been a fixture in their side.
