ICC T20I Rankings
Australia is now in the third spot in the latest rankings with 122 points.
Meanwhile, India is all set to lock-horns with hosts England with the first T20I slated to be played at Old Trafford on June 3. India would be missing the services of Jasprit Bumrah as ahe picked up an injury along with Washington Sundar. They would be replaced by Deepak Chahar and Axar Patel, who have been rewarded on the back of good performances in the recently concluded IPL.
Deepak Chahar was a part of the Chennai Super Kings outfit which eventually went on to lift the crown. He was instrumental with the new ball in the powerplay overs. Krunal Pandya on the other hand, brings in the all-round element something that Sundar would have brought to the plate had he been there, hence it looks like a like-for-like replacement.
