England v India: second Twenty20 cricket global

England v India: second Twenty20 cricket global

It triggered wild celebrations among the India fans inside Sophia Gardens but it was England who had the final say, Hales batting through to the end to help take 12 runs from the 20th over to win the match.

Fresh from a clinical eight-wicket victory over England, India will aim to clinch the Twenty-20 global (T20I) series when they lock horns with the hosts in the second T20I of the three-match series at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff today. Hales started with a massive six and then hit a four to win the match for his side with two balls to spare.

The series concludes with the third T20 game in Bristol on Sunday before three 50-over internationals and a five-match Test series.

But with such a short turnaround in the fixtures' list, it is easier said than done.

A key reason underlined by Morgan after the first defeat was that the middle-order batsmen, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root, who both got stumped off successive googlies, needed more time to settle in.

The Men-in-Blue completely outclassed England in the first game as Kuldeep Yadav's fifer followed by Lokesh rahul's unbeaten ton guided Indian to comfortable victory at the Old Trafford.

Ariana Grande Reacts to Fiance Pete Davidson's Manchester Bombing Joke
It would seem that so far, the relationship between Ariana Grande and Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson has gone super well. He and Grande, both 24, announced their engagement last month after a whirlwind romance of only a few weeks.

The Indian team management is likely to stick to the same playing eleven, and will not try to disturb their winning combination.

The over made England the firm favourites.

Ball, the Nottinghamshire pace bowler, was handed a T20 worldwide debut and made the most of his chance by taking a wicket in his first over but his figures suffered at the hands of Dhoni. After enjoying a sunny welcome both in Dublin and Manchester, the team was greeted to typical English grey skies, light rain and chill when they arrived in Cardiff on Wednesday.

India had won that ODI with an all-round performance from Suresh Raina. England also have an uncapped player, Sam Curran.

The England vs India, 2nd T20 worldwide begins at 10.00 pm (IST).
