England vs India recent form
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India will head into the second T20I brimming with confidence after thrashing England in the opening match of the series at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Thursday.
Electing to bat first, India rode on Hardik Pandya’s 33-ball 51 and valuable contributions from Suryakumar Yadav (39 off 19 balls) and Deepak Hooda (33 off 17 balls) helped the visitors post 198/8 in their 20 overs.
In reply, England lost wickets at regular intervals and were bowled out for 148 in 19.3 overs. Pandya was also the wrecker-in-chief with the ball for India, picking four wickets for 33 runs in his quota of four overs.
Since suffering a four-wicket defeat against South Africa earlier in June, the Men in Blue are unbeaten in their last six matches in the T20I format.
On the other hand, the England cricket team has struggled in the shortest format off lately, securing just two victories in their last five matches.
