India v England, 2nd T20I: Match Report – Rohit’s players beat England by 49 runs

Once India scored 170 for 8, everyone thought it was a low score considering England’s batting.

But India bowled with poison and purpose as England had 121 runs left.



The third T20I, which is now for educational purposes only, will be played on Sunday (July 10) at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Ravindra Jadeja scored 46 off 29 balls to give the team a solid score.

In bowling, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took important wickets along with England captain Jose Butler. England have not been able to make a comeback since that moment.

Skipper Rohit Sharma (31) and Rishabh Pant (26) scored 49 runs in five overs for the opening wicket.

Rohit was knocked out by newcomer Richard Gleason, 34, as Butler caught a brilliant diving catch and Lancashire bowlers Virat Kohli and Pant were bowled out in quick succession for a memorable double.

Hardik Pandya denied a hat-trick to Gleeson, but he was one of the four batsmen to fall to the great Chris Jordan, who was dismissed after Jordan dismissed Suryakumar Yadav in the brilliant 11th over.

India were 89-5 at the time, but Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 46 off 29 balls gave them something to defend.

He took immediate action, Jason Roy outscored Bhuvneshwar Kumar to zero off the first ball, Butler was dismissed for just four off the same bowler.

Liam Livingstone (15) went cheap at the hands of Jaspreet Bumrah, as Moin Ali (35 off 21 balls) offered something as England lost wickets in an innings.

His outing and Jordan and Gleason defended the final wicket, leaving David Wiley (33 not out), which fell when Herschel Patel uprooted Matt Parkinson’s stumps.

Future The Butler (again), and then some

Bhuvneshwar knocked out Butler for zero in the first game at Southampton and he was again a thorn in the side of the dangerous captain, with the selection of bowlers as the fastest bowlers going 3-15 in favor of India.

Rohit’s series continues

Rohit has now led India’s T20I team to 14 wins in a row. His 13-run knock is already a record, and with India’s consistent strong win over one of the best white balls in the world, it looks set to be in a good position for the T20 World Cup later this year.
