India dismissed England for 121 in the second T20I at Edgbaston, with the help of Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s three-wicket haul, Jasprit Bumrah’s two wickets, and Yuzvendra Chahal’s two each, giving India an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

India reached 49 in 4.5 overs after Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant were sent in, with the latter opening for the first time in T20Is. In the middle overs, England regained control as rookie Richard Gleeson removed Rohit, Virat Kohli, and Rishabh Pant in the span of ten deliveries.

India was reduced to 89 for 5 in the 11th over as Chris Jordan struck out Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya with consecutive deliveries. Axar Patel was replaced in the lineup by Ravindra Jadeja, who subsequently hit an unbeaten 46 off 29 balls to lead India to 170 for 8.

It wasn’t necessary a winning total because of the small square boundaries, especially against this England team, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent Jason Roy and Jos Buttler back cheaply to hinder England’s chase. After then, England never recovered and collapsed to 61 for 6 in 11 overs. There were still three overs to go when Harshal Patel yorked No. 11 Matt Parkinson to end the game.

India beat England by 49 runs

Rohit tried a hoick over midwicket against David Willey on the first ball of the innings. All he managed to get past the slip fielder was an outside edge. A full and wide delivery was pursued two balls later, and he sliced it towards backward point, where Jason Roy missed the opportunity. Eight of the 20 balls Rohit encountered were not under his control.

However, due to field limitations, the runs came thick and quickly when he connected properly. Moeen Ali was dismissed for two fours in three balls, while Willey was dismissed for a pair of sixes. His 31 runs were scored with a strike rate of 155 overall.

When the England seamers were bowling, there was a glimmer of movement with the new ball. However, Bhuvneshwar was the one who completely utilized it. His first pitch was a wicket-maiden. He caught Roy at first slip with an outswinger on the opening ball of the chase. He banged Malan on the pads once and beat Malan’s outside edge three times in the subsequent five.
