The India vs England T20 international series reaches its conclusion today — and aren't we in for a treat…
After four contests that have swung back and forth like a Jimmy Anderson over at Headingley, the two sides go into the final match locked at 2-2.
If you need a recap, England were comfortable victors in the first T20I, while India bossed the second. The third looked to be tighter — until Jos Buttler hit a career-best 83 not out off 52 balls to see England home in style. The fourth was the closest match yet, with India ultimately prevailing by eight runs.
What happens next is anyone's guess. England are currently ranked No.1 in the world, but India have home advantage and are still buzzing from their recent 3-1 drubbing of the tourists in the earlier Test series.
And there's plenty at stake here, too: the 2021 T20 World Cup takes place in India later this year, and both sides will want to set down a marker ahead of that tournament.

Plenty of questions remain to be answered. Will Dawid Malan do anything to show why he's the No.1 ranked T20I batsman in the world? Will we see the Virat Kohli who made big scores in the second and third T20I games, or the Virat Kohli who scored just 1 in the fourth? Will Jofra Archer or Shardul Thakur prove the pick of the bowlers?
