Team India is now on a tour of Europe after finishing the 5 T20 match series against South Africa at 2-2. After playing two matches against Ireland, the Indian team will play 1 Test match against England and after that, the series of three T20 International matches will start. Then the Indian team will have a chance to make a world record for most times defeating England at home in this format. Apart from this, a unique race is also going to be held between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in this series.
The Indian team has so far played 6 T20 Internationals against England in England. In this, Team India has won two matches. At the same time, England has won 4 matches. India is currently at par with Australia in terms of most wins in England. At the same time, the teams of Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies and Pakistan are ahead of us.
Currently, the record of defeating England in T20 Internationals at home for the most number of times is in the name of Pakistan’s team. Pakistan has played 12 T20 matches against England in England so far. In this they have got 4 victories. The hosts have won 7 matches. One match has ended in vain.
India will have to clean sweep against the hosts in the upcoming series if they want to overtake Pakistan to become the most successful overseas T20 team in England. The England team often plays well at home. Apart from the West Indies in T20, there is no such team that has won more matches against England by going to England and losing less.

The current captain is Rohit Sharma in second place. Rohit has scored 147 runs in 5 matches against England in T20 in England. Now it remains to be seen whether these two batsmen play in the next series against England or not. The test match will end on 5th July and T20 series is starting from 7th July.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
