PITCH REPORT – Murali Kartik and Ajit Agarkar are the pitch analysts for the day. Ajit Agarkar says that this is a different surface and there is a little less grass, as compared to the first game and the deck looks firm and solid. Murali says that the turf is slightly abrasive. Ajit adds that he expects this pitch to play well, despite how the deck looks. Ajit opines that the English pacers have the tools if the turf generates bounce. Kartik ends by reminding everyone that there was no dew present in the last game.
Well, this came out of nowhere! Pictures from the middle showing that Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are receiving their Indian cap and so they will be making their debut today. Big moment for both these youngsters!
Time for Round 2! After a short break of just one day, we are back for the 2nd T20I between India and England. The hosts were pummeled in the first game as the English Lions ran all over the Indians and took a deserved 1-0 lead in the series. Kohli and the Indians must be thinking that England might have won the battle, but not the war as 4 more games are remaining and will be looking to come out all guns blazing and with the way this Indian team has been groomed, do not be surprised if they come out with a bang. Not a lot of changes are to be expected from both sides, but it will be interesting to see how India line-up after the thrashing in the first game. All things in consideration, it is building up to be a mouth-watering clash. Toss and the team news coming up shortly…
