IND vs ENG 3rd T20I: Team India were back to their best in the 2nd T20I as they beat England by seven wickets, in a fairly comfortable manner. Plenty of cricket fans thought that England, after their performance in the first game could once again have a strong hold here, but Virat Kohli and his men responded well.
Having won the toss, India Elected to have a bowl first. The use of variations and a proper game plan by the bowlers restricted the visitors to a score of 164 for the fall of six wickets. The likes of Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur stood out with two wickets each, meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up a wicket apiece.
In reply, Team India once again lost the early wicket of K.L. Rahul, but that’s where debutant Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli went ballistic. Kishan scored a scintillating knock of 56 from 32 deliveries, which included five fours and four sixes before getting dismissed by Adil Rashid.
Rishabh Pant’s quick fire cameo of 26 from 13 deliveries entertained the fans, whereas, the skipper Virat Kohli hung his way to the end by scoring an unbeaten 73 of 49, while also hitting the winning runs in the process.
The third T20I between India and England will also be hosted in the Narendra Modi Stadium, at 7:00 pm (ist). The match will be broadcasted at Hotstar as well as Star Sports.
