IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: The 5th T20I of the 5 match series between India and England will be played on Saturday, March 20, 2021, at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
IND vs ENG 5th T20I Match Preview
India will face England in the series-deciding fifth T20I at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on Saturday (March 20). India, on Thursday, levelled the series 2-2 against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The hosts had Suryakumar Yadav’s maiden 50 to thank, while the pace trio of Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur also came up trumps with the ball.
As for England, they are perhaps the most well-balanced T20I team in the world. However, while they thought they could have won the fourth clash and the series, things did not go in their favour. However, they will be looking to fine-tune their strategy ahead of the series decider.
The focus will be on Dawid Malan and Chris Jordan, both of whom have been underwhelming in the series so far. But with the kind of form the likes of Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler are in, England is surely a force to be reckoned with in this format.
Here are the match details, pitch report, weather forecast, head to head, top picks, probable playing 11 and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 5th T20I between India and England.

It will be pretty hot in Ahmedabad during day time with the maximum temperature touching 39 degrees Celsius, whereas in the evening it will range between 29 and 35 Degrees Celsius. There is no chance of precipitation for this match.
A competitive track awaits the two sides at Motera, with the pacers getting ample help on offer. While the new ball should swing around, there is some extra bounce available, which should keep the likes of Mark Wood and Shardul Thakur interested.
