One loss in the series won’t affect them until they go on to win the series. winning this series would mean a top rank in the T20 ranking. Whereas, the loss in the series would mean a slip in ranking for team India from number 1.

The white ball giants such as David Mallan, Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, and Moeen Ali are present to make the first series of captains memorable. Whereas the likes of Sam Curran, Phill Salt, and Reece Topley would have to impress the captain for their survival in the white-ball game.
