  • A win could remove question marks from Eoin Morgan’s captaincy under whom England won a questionable super-over tie on boundary count. His victory could boost England’s hopes in the upcoming T20 World Cup. On the other end, ‘mentor’ MS Dhoni victory could further add to the spirits of Virat Kohli-led team India who will have him as a mentor for the T20 WC.
