England vs India 2022: 2nd T20 Best Predicted Playing 11 – 4 Big Changes

Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant return to the squad as we look at the 2022 England vs India 2nd T20 predicted playing 11.

After having lost the 5th Test match vs England, Team India begin the T20I series with a bang. Having scored a solid 198 while batting first, India bundled out the home team for just 148 runs. Hardik Pandya was the star of the match for his all-round performance. He scored a valuable fifty while batting first and took a superb 4-wicket haul while bowling. 

With 1st T20 done and dusted, India see their solid core of players getting back in the side. The T20 players who were a part of the Test Team will now be back for the 2nd and 3rd T20I. So, the likes of Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Pant, Jadeja, and Bumrah are back in the squad. Whereas Ruturaj Gaikwad, Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Arshdeep, and Venkatesh Iyer make way for them.

With new additions in the squad, will Team India force themselves to make so many changes for the 2nd T20I? Or will India continue with their winning momentum, and make only necessary changes? Well, let’s find out in the 2nd T20I Best Predicted Playing 11 for Team India for the 2nd T20I vs England. Before that, let’s look at the updated squad for Team India for the T20 series.

England vs India 2022 – 2nd & 3rd T20 Official T20 Series Squad for Team India: 

Batters: Rohit Sharma & Suryakumar Yadav Shreyas Iyer & Virat Kohli

Wks: Dinesh Karthik, Ishan Kishan & Rishabh Pant

All-rounders: Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya & Ravindra Jadeja,

Bowlers: Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravi Bishnoi, Umran Malik & Yuzvendra Chahal

Match Details:

Tournament: India Tour of England 2022 

Type: T20I Series – 2nd T20I

Where: Birmingham 

When: July 9, 10:30 pm IST

Playing 11 for Both Teams:

As unfortunate as it may sound, even as Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Hooda did so well in the 1st T20I, they won’t be selected for the 2nd T20I. While Deepak Hooda will make way for King Kohli, Arshdeep Singh is not in the squad for the rest of the series, and will be replaced by India’s number 1 pacer, Jasprit Bumrah. 

Axar Patel for Ravindra Jadeja is a straightforward swap. Axar hasn’t don’t anything good in the limited appearances for Team India in T20Is, and with Ravindra Jadeja, a more established all-rounder back in the squad, Axar will have to make way for him. This will make India’s bowling and lower-order a lot stronger.

With Jadeja, an established all-rounder playing at 7, India would also bring Rishabh Pant, a left-hander in place of Dinesh Karthik. While Karthik has played decently in his comeback for India, Pant is the first-choice wicket-keeper of the team. In addition to his keeping, Pant’s left-hander attacking batting is much-needed in the middle-order for India.

For England, they may go unchanged even as they received proper hammering. Captain Jos Buttler would like to give another chance to his team to make a comeback.
