Eoin Morgan’s England gave the Indian cricket team a reality check and will be eager to take a 2-0 lead when the teams reconvene for the second T20I at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera on Sunday, March 14.
Virat Kohli’s decision to not play Suryakumar Yadav or Rohit Sharma backfired and now the team management will likely take the call to field either of the two in the latest fixture, with the hopes of a strong fightback.
The England cricket team, on the other hand, won’t make any changes to their winning combination and will be keen to make seven consecutive T20I wins away from home.
