The men in blue are back to their formidable best after a rare slip in the first T20I, as they comfortably dispatched the Englishmen in the second T20I of the season. They took control right away, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar trapping the dangerous Jos Buttler leg before wicket in the first over.
England got to a decent total thanks to great knocks from Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan, and when they dismissed KL Rahul for a duck, it looked like a 2-0 lead was on the cards. However, Ishan Kishan’s brilliant debut knock and Virat Kohli’s equally impressive inning sealed the Indians’ victory. Given their previous game performance, it’s safe to say they’ll be favourites to win this one.
It will be sweltering in Ahmedabad once again. The temperature will be about 38°C, but it will drop to 33°C during the game. There aren’t any chances of rain as it has been a hot match day.
It will be a friendly pitch at Motera. The bowlers will receive some assistance as the game progressed; even the pitch had done much better in the previous game.
While the spinners could extract some turn from the surface, the pacers will look to take advantage of the conditions by bowling off-pace.
Batting against the new ball is a little smoother, while the pitch will slow down slightly as the game progresses. After winning the toss, both teams will chase, with 170 being a match-winning total at this venue.
