India vs England T20 Series second match – Match Highlights:
– England and India face on in the 2nd match of the series on 6th July
– The match will start 10 pm IST and will be played in Cardiff
– India lead the 3 match series 1-0
After having dominated the first T20 international of the three match series to win by 8 wickets on the back of a super showing by chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and batsman KL Rahul, India will be looking to keep the juggernaut rolling as they eye a series win against England in the second T20 of the series. Billed as one of the finest T20 sides in the world at the moment, England will be no rollover for the visitors though, having a squad that can destroy any batting line-up on its day. All this makes the perfect recipe for a match that is guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seats starting 10pm IST on the 6th of July.
Coming back to the India vs England T20 Series second match preview, for India the blueprint is simple going into this match. Continue where they had left off from in the first match, put in the same performances and take home the series with a match to spare. This should mean that the Indian side go in unchanged as they look to not only seal the series but also bolster their points in the ICC T20 rankings in a bid to occupy the top spot. With spin having troubled the English batsmen to no intent, India will be heavily reliant on the duo of Chahal and Yadav to spin another magical spell between them.
For the English it is all about playing out India’s spinners cautiously and attacking the pacers. They failed miserably in the former while passing with flying colours in the latter. The failure was greater than the victory though and ultimately resulted in them posting a below par total on Tuesday. And to help them in their preparations they are resorting to using a spin machine in the nets. Will it help them or not, that only time will tell in a day.
The weather conditions are heavily overcast at the Sophia Gardens but there is good news with the clouds expected to clear up before the match starts. Be sure to tune it at 10pm on the Sony Network or the SonyLiv app to catch all the action live on July 6th.
