Like the Test, the Indian team can take the field with 3 spinners in the T20. At the same time, Akshar Patel's 3 years and Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar may also return to the team after one and a half years.
Team India's playing XI may get all-rounder Akshar Patel and Washington Sundar with spin specialist Yuzvendra Chahal. Either of these two all-rounders can be seated outside when the batting pitch is done. However, this is highly unlikely, as both bat well. Akshar last played T20 against South Africa in Cape Town on 24 February 2018.Looking at the T20 World Cup, Team India would like to experiment in the series

Hardik will be the third fast bowler along with Bhuvi and Shardul
Among fast bowlers, Bhubaneswar is almost certain to play. He will return to the team after a year and a half. Bhubaneswar last played T20 against West Indies on 11 December 2019. Then India won by 67 runs in the match played in Mumbai. If Hardik Pandya bowling, another fast bowler can be fed. He will be either Shardul Thakur or T Natarajan.

Rahul is set to open with Rohit
Talking about batting, Lokesh Rahul will be seen supporting Rohit Sharma in the opening. Shikhar Dhawan and Ishaan Kishan may have to wait a little longer. After him, captain Virat Kohli himself will handle the front at number three. However, Kohli's form has not been doing well for some time. His bat was calm in Tests as well. In such a situation, the eyes of all the fans will be on them.
Iyer, Pant and Hardik will be in middle order
After Kohli, the team's middle order will be handled by Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya. Pant has led the team to victory in the Test series against Australia and then England. Pandya did a great job in the ODI-T20 tour of Australia. At the same time, Iyer has scored two consecutive centuries in the Vijay Hazare tournament. If Iyer is excluded, Ishaan Kishan may get a chance to debut, but this is unlikely
Ishaan, Teotia, Suryakumar, Varun awaiting debut
Four young players Ishaan Kishan, Rahul Teotia, Suryakumar Yadav and Varun Chakraborty have been selected in the team for the first time. They are waiting for their debut. However, it does not seem possible to get any of these opportunities in the first match.
Roy, Malan, Stokes, Karan and Morgan
Openers Jason Roy and Jos Buttler will have the responsibility of giving a good start to the England team. At the same time, David Malan, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan and Sam Karan will have full responsibility in the middle order. England team has batting lineup till last.
