India won the second T20I of the series against England in convincing fashion and thus concluded the three-game T20I series against the hosts. Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were the stars of the Indian team as they played an important role in helping India win comfortably.
India beat England by 49 points to win the second T20I and thus conclude the series. After being asked to strike by the England captain Joe Buttler, India managed to post a decent total of 170 against the hosts. The opening Indian batters including Rohit Sharma and Rishab Panting got India off to a good start in the power play. They sewed a 49-run partnership for the first wicket that set the tone for the innings.
Virat Kohli couldn’t start because he was fired for one. After losing the top three, India got a bit lost Hardik PandyaSuryakumar Yadav and Dinesh Karthik couldn’t start and couldn’t make much impact with the bat. However, Ravindra Jadeja beat smart and managed to score an important 46 for the team that took India to 170.
England were rocked on the first-ever chase ball as Bhuvneshwar Kumar fired Jason Roy and also knocked down a young girl. Kumar carried on his good form from the last game and made sure the England batters struggled against him. He also fired captain Jos Buttler which was his second time in this series to give India the upper hand.
From then on, England could never really make a comeback as Indian bowlers continued to take wickets at regular intervals. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the bowlers choice as he took 3 wickets for 15 runs.
This is Rohit Sharma’s 14th consecutive T20I victory as captain, the most in the world and the third victory of the series as captain on the trot.
