After losing the first game of the series one-sidedly, the men in blue make a roaring back. The captain Virat Kohli led the team brilliantly in an important encounter. The approach at top of the order completely changes the direction of the series, as the dynamite left-hander Ishan Kishan never looked like Debutant for a single moment. In chase of a decent total of 165 runs, India off to a bad start by losing KL Rahul in the first over. IND vs ENG 3rd T20I is slated to be played at the same venue in Ahmedabad.
The wicket maiden first over by Sam Curran sets the tone for the English side, but the Ishan Kishan show began after the first over, as India scored 50 runs in the first 6 overs of the powerplay. The mindset from India stirred the outcome of India, as the English side was in disbelief courtesy of belligerent batting from Ishan Kishan. The total of 165 runs was chased down with 13 balls to spare showed the rampage strike from India.
The two best T-20I’s side in the world fought hard on the field, as the performances of Individuals stunned the fans of cricket. The batting of Ishan Kishan showed the world about depth in the Indian batting lineup, as the Mumbai Indians swashbuckling left-hander wins the heart of millions after the brave inning of 56 runs. The knock of 73 runs from Virat Kohli comes under the shadow of the debutant knock.
The Injury to Wood cost England, as the bowling figures of Chris Jordan and Tom Curran rubbed the salt on England’s wound. England were 119/3 in 13.4 overs then India puts a brake on England’s progress and they managed to post only 164 runs on the board. The added batting option in the Indian batting lineup was the confidence booster for the top-order batsmen, as the cushion of lower-order firepower induces batsmen to play freely at the top. India needs to bring some pace and swing weapon in the lineup, as the bowling lineup is still looking fragile.
IND vs ENG: India Superbly Made A Comeback In The T20I Series
The bowling lineup doesn’t give confidence in defending the totals like 160-170-180 etc. The early swing for a couple of overs could shake the confidence of the opposition’s batting lineup and the yorkers at the death overs are mandatory against a quality side like England. The Inclusion of Navdeep Saini could be a decisive move if he fits for bowling in T-20 format. India needs to compromise one batting option as the proper five bowlers are a compulsory component in T-20 cricket.
The successful teams always have a great bowling attack to defend any total, but the bowling lineup for India in the second T-20 still doesn’t give the confidence to defend totals. The Five Bowlers are Bhuvneshwar, Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, and Y Chahal. These bowlers are good as far as International experience is a concern but they are not good enough to stop the firepower of England in every game. If India compromises one of the batsmen in the lineup then the bowling of India will be far more superior in defending the totals.
