India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 2nd T20I at Motera: India to Bowl; Ishan, Surya to Debut
India vs England, 2nd T20I, Live Updates| And the breaking news is Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan will make debut for India. So who goes out? Will Rohit come in? Lots of questions and therefore you will have to wait for the toss where the team sheets will be revealed.
2nd T20I Preview: England thrashed India by 8 wickets in the series opener at Motera in Ahmedabad on Friday to give an early reminder to the hosts as to who bosses the world in limited overs cricket. Yes, the visitors had a plan of playing aggressive and attacking cricket – the brand that has seen them win the 2019 World Cup at home and become the number 1 ranked team in both ODIs and T20Is dominating the formats in the last couple of years. But England did one more thing right. To execute their perfect plan they put out the perfect XI – their best combination which proved to be too good for India in all three disciplines on the day.
India made a strategy blunder. In a bid to find that ideal combination for the World T20 in October they experimented a bit too early in the series. The biggest sin they committed was at the top of the order by resting Rohit Sharma for the first couple of matches – this after Virat Kohli had already announced that Rohit will open with KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan would be the reserve opener. This apparent last minute decision to ‘rest’ Rohit is not going down well with the Indian fans and cricket pundits.
