The Indian team sealed the T20 performance with another dominant performance as they won the second T20I by 49 runs. The Men in Blue had a difficult start as England's newcomer Richard Gleeson took out the entire Indian top order in the first six overs of the innings. But Ravindra Jadeja and Harshal Patel's great finish helped India reach a total of 170 runs. Then in the second innings, it was the Bhuvaneshwar Kumar show as he ripped through England and took three wickets. The hosts were bundled for 121 in 16 overs.
The Men in Blue continued their near-perfect run in the T20Is in the last few months. Their bowling has looked top-notch with players like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel have put up great performances. The team's all-rounders Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja have been monumental. But their top order has been their biggest weakness.
The Three Lions' biggest strength, their batting, has been the reason behind their downfall this series. England has managed to score 148 in the first game and only 119 in the second. Their captain Jos Butler has put up an underwhelming four runs. Similarly, their bowling has let them down by conceding big runs in both games. But Chris Jordan has emerged as a silver lining in this string of bad performances.
