London [UK], July 8 (ANI): India will be aiming to seal the series when they take on England in the deciding game of the ongoing three-match T20I series here at Bristol County Ground on Sunday.
Earlier, India had kick-started their two-month tour of England with a resounding eight-wicket win against the hosts. However, they lost the second game after attacking English batsman Alex Hales struck 12 runs off the final over to register a five-wicket win over the visitors levelling the series 1-1.
England returned well after their first-match surrender to Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav and did not let Indian spinners dominate in the second game.
Virat Kohli-led side, on the other hand, were fancying their chances till the final over of the second match but Alex Hales' match-winning knock took the game away from the hands of Indians.
A series win today will be a big confidence booster for the Indian team ahead of the three-match one day international series against the Englishmen, beginning July 12.
