It’s England vs India in a T20 International cricket match on Sunday, September 7.

The cricket match at Edgbaston in Birmingham is slated to start at 7:30 p.m. IST (3 p.m. BST).

The match will be broadcast on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom and STAR Sports in India.

It will also be broadcast on PTV Sports in Pakistan, Ten Sports in Sri Lanka, OSN in the Middle East, Fox Sports in Australia, and SuperSport in South Africa.

Live streaming will be available through the broadcasters.

England is coming off a rough series loss after dropping 3 of 4 ODIs (the fifth one was canceled due to alternate weather).

The only consolation is that the team won the last ODI, finishing 41 runs up on India.

But the team will need to win this T20I if it has any hopes of coming off the series with anything positive moving forward.

India, on the other hand, has no such pressure after winning the ODI series.

“A win will do nicely for India, but you can’t say they’ll be shattered if they lose the one-off Twenty20. The format is such, and with the next World T20 two years away, there isn’t too much riding on the result of this game. India’s squad contains five players who are yet to make their T20 debut – Stuart Binny, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ambati Rayudu, Sanju Samson and Karn Sharma – but none of them was brought along as a specialist for the format,” noted CricInfo.

“England, though, have a different captain for T20, and a squad rich with players who didn’t feature in the ODIs. With their 50-over blueprint under attack from all quarters, T20 games such as this one allow them to try new combinations, ease players back into international cricket and see if new faces fit.

“And so England have a lot more plotlines to track over the 40 overs of this game. Jason Roy has had a storming season for Surrey, topping their run charts in Division 2 of the County Championship, and topping the overall run charts in the NatWest t20 Blast. How will he deal with India’s attack, and their two Ravis? How will England’s Ravi respond in his first game back after being dropped from the ODI side despite having done fairly okay in that format? Will Eoin Morgan make the selectors wonder if he could take over the ODI captaincy from Alastair Cook?”

Neither country has any matches scheduled this month following this match.

India will host the West Indies in an ODI series beginning on Wednesday, October 8 in Kochi.

The tour will include multiple Test series and will last into November. India will then travel to Australia for some matches in early December.
