The humilation of the test series is finally over for India as they were thrashed by England. We now move on to the shortest format of the game in a one time T20 game this tour and is a great chance for India to let out some frustration of late. Both teams have named a younger squad for the T20 series so there should be plenty of excitment.

How the Teams Stand
England should be full of confidence after the test series as they demolished the former number 1 team India. England have been just as good in the shorter formats over the past few months as they beat Sri Lanka only a few weeks ago. They have some extremely talented players in the squad for the T20 and the World will see the youth of the England team and what to expect in the coming years. Kieswetter is a player that has been in the England shorter format squads for a while now and for thios T20 will be one of the experienced players and he will have to get England off to a good start. The other opener is a young man named Alex Hales and it is said that many teams fear him because of his slugging ability and is now his time to shine. Jane Derbach has impressed the England camp over the past few months but has still failed to cement his spot in the ODI team so he would want to show England what he can do.
