England win the toss in Bengaluru and send India in

England has won the toss and asked India to bat in the third and final Twenty20 International at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

Teenage hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was handed his debut for the series decider, replacing the unfortunate Manish Pandey with the teams locked at 1-1 after the first two games. England have also made one change, bringing back pacer Liam Plunkett in place of left-arm spinner Liam Dawson.

With the three-match T20I series squared at 1-1, the final game at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Wednesday promises to be an exciting contest with India aiming to pocket another series win while England will be hoping to end their lacklustre tour on a high.

After a poor batting display in both the previous games, all eyes will be on local boys Lokesh Rahul, and Virat Kohli (captain of the Indian Premier League side - Royal Challengers Bangalore) to give a strong start to the hosts.

England to make Official Complaint about Indian Umpire Shamshuddin after Second T20 loss

India stayed alive in their T20 series with England courtesy of a narrow 5 run win in the second Twenty20 International at Nagpur on Sunday, but few who watched the match will doubt that the quality of the umpiring had a huge role to play in the outcome of the game.

Umpire Chettithody Shamshuddin, a late replacement to be called up for this game, made three shocking decisions all in favour of the hosts as he first failed to give leg before decisions against Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh in the Indian innings and then unforgivably gave Joe Root out leg before on the first ball of the final over a decision which played an absolutely pivotal role as India managed to defend 8 runs thanks to Jaspirit Bumrah's outstanding bowling.
