England vs India recent form

The Indian cricket team will enter the upcoming England vs India T20I series with some momentum, having registered a 2-0 series win over Ireland in their last assignment.

England, however, will have no shortage of confidence after recording their record run chase in Test cricket to beat India at Edgbaston.

The Men in Blue have won 10 of their 13 T20I matches in 2022, with their only defeats coming against South Africa at home earlier in June.

England, meanwhile, have played just five T20I matches and returned with just two wins.  

England: L, W, L, W, L

India: W, W, N/R, W, W

Last five meetings:

March 20, 2021: India won by 36 runs

England vs India prediction and cricket betting tips for 1st T20I

Based on their performance in the recent Test at Edgbaston, England are backed by the odds to win the first T20I on Thursday.

However, India’s T20 record in recent times against England and their form in 2022 make them a formidable challenge.
