England Total Runs Line for the 2nd game

Under 171.5 Runs 1.88 v 1.88 Over 171.5 Runs

Jos Buttler out plumb

the ball before Malan got out , should have been given LBW in my opinion

this mini break in play here will favour India. England batsman will have to restart again.

is it just me or does someone like Ashwin, would have been a better choice instead of the extra Indian paceman tonight?

the pitch as mentioned by the commentators is playing a bit 2 paced for me, would have loved to see India play a 3rd spinner on this track.

This Indian fielding has cost them about 13-15 runs so far.

England batsman have struggled much more against the spin than pace. Just wondering if there is even a part time spinner available…

ball is gripping and there is uneven bounce

India Need 165 off 20 overs to win the 2nd T20

Change of Innings Odds:

India 1.61 v 2.62 England

at one stage England were a shoe-in for 185 there

thats a rip snorter by Sam Curran.
