Eng vs Ind 2nd T20I Highlights: India Seal Series with huge 49 race win
The Indian side led by great performances from Ravindra Jadeja with bat and Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah with the ball, beat England by 49 runs to seal the series as they take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series.
Asked to bat first, the men in blue headed for a flyer, scoring 50 runs in the first five overs. Then, the wickets fell at regular intervals even as the Indian team’s running pace never dropped. And thanks to a brilliant 46* from 29 balls by Jadeja, India reached a respectable 170-8 tally.
England were again disappointing with the bat as Jason Roy and Jos Buttler soon lost their wickets. Lia Livingstone and Harry Brook didn’t last long and Malan, who looked like playing the anchor role he does so well, was fired as he played a reverse sweep.
A few vigorous shots from Moeen Ali and David Willey at different points in the innings could take England down to just 121 from 17 overs when they were knocked out. For India, Bumrah and Chahal picked two wickets each while Bhuvneshwar Kumar had three.
