On a day when most citizens will be enjoying their off As India celebrates its 68th Republic Day, the Indian team will slog it out for a little over three hours at Kanpur’s Green Park, looking to maintain their stranglehold over the Englishmen in the tour so far. The Indian cricket team will be hoping to make the nation proud by getting off to a winning start in the three-match T20 series against England at Kanpur.
The fight from the visitors though, will be a different, slightly tougher one. Eoin Morgan and company are, after all, entering the last leg of their grueling tour of the subcontinental giant on a high after pulling off a thrilling consolatory win in the third ODI at Eden Gardens just four days ago.
A win such as that — at the same venue where they suffered one of their most heart-breaking losses in recent history — can do wonders to boost one’s confidence, and Captain Morgan will be more pumped than ever with the prospect of lifting at least one trophy before taking the flight back home.
