Virat Kohli Fielding: Team India are squaring off with England in the 2nd T2OI at this moment in time, and the contest has been evenly poised so far. The Men In Blue won the toss and elected to have a bowl first.
Though T20 action is more often than not considered to be high voltage, there was a moment of madness from Captain Kohli as he gave away a cheap run.
Twitter was quick to say that “Kohli has now scored 1 run” before even coming on the crease with the bat, along with a few other cheeky digs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned back the clock and took the early wicket of Jos Buttler to give his side early momentum. However, Jason Roy and David Malan continued to anchor the England innings. The batting duo went on to accumulate a partnership of 63 runs, which sets the tone for the batsmen to follow.
Nevertheless, Yuzvendra Chahal displayed his wit yet again, and got the better of Dawid Malan by getting him out LBW on 24 runs. The Indian bowlers have impressed by keeping things tight and will be eyeing to restrict England to a minimum.
The visitors do have ample quality in the middle order who can spring a comeback and cause India some problems. Especially when considering the fact that India are missing out on death over specialists such as Jaspirt Bumrah and T Natrajan.
