India will face England in the one-off Twenty 20 (T20I) at Edgbaston on Sunday (September 7). The match will be the final encounter in what has been a long and intense tour. England won the Test series 3-1, but India bounced back in style in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and clinched the five-match series 1-3. Read the preview of the match here

It would be India’s first T20I since the ICC World T20 2014 final earlier this year. From the eleven that played on that day, there would be a few changes. Yuvraj Singh and Amit Mishra aren’t a part of the squad. Plus, Rohit Sharma is out injured. Mohit Sharma’s availability is also doubtful for this encounter. Catch the Live Scorecard of the match here

Ajinkya Rahane should open the batting with Shikhar Dhawan with Virat Kohli coming in at No 3. Ambati Rayudu may hold on to his spot in the middle with Suresh Raina at No 5. Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja would complete the batting line-up. Ravichandran Ashwin will also be a certainty. Then, come the fast bowlers with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and in all likelihood, Umesh Yadav taking the third seamer’s spot. Catch the Live Blog of the match here
