England and India face off their fifth and final T20 clash today and it’ll be winner-takes-all in Ahmedabad.
It’s been a topsy-turvy series in the sub-continent with India claiming a narrow win on Thursday to level it at 2-2.
Eoin Morgan and co have shown brilliance at times but have struggled at others and will be eager to clinch the series.
Unfortunately, there will be no fans in Ahmedabad again due to COVID-19 restrictions but the action should be thrilling once more.
The final T20 game – and all three ODIs in Pune – will be live on the talkSPORT network.

India vs England: What has been said?
Ben Stokes has welcomed the pressure of a showpiece finale against India.
The England star said: “In an ideal world we would have loved to have gone into the next game having won the series and it sounds weird saying it but we got a positive out of losing.
“We go into the next game with a huge amount of pressure on our shoulders as a team because whoever wins that game wins the series. It’s a final.
“That’s great for us as a team, especially with a T20 World Cup coming up. The more pressure situations we are put into as team, the better we’ll be for it. We want to win and we want to make a habit of winning.”
Meanwhile, England captain Eoin Morgan added: “It is all to play for. To win a series away from home would be great.”
