Meanwhile, all the matches of the series will take place in the Ahmedabad Stadium, with the opening encounter scheduled for Friday (March 12). Rahul was part of India's Test squad but didn't get a single game in the series. However, he's sure to open for India in T20Is, given his stellar record in the format.
The series also holds great significance, with the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 set to take place later this year. Moreover, England are the top-ranked T20I team, and defeating them wouldn't be a bread and butter task for Virat Kohli's men.
