Few would have expected the first T20I between India and England, at Old Trafford, to be a one-sided contest. Jason Roy and Jos Buttler launched a furious assault on India, taking England to 53 without loss in the Powerplay overs. Then Kuldeep Yadav cast a spell on the English batsmen with his left-arm wrist-spin. He wrecked the England line-up with five for 24, which included three wickets in four balls in the 14th over of the match.
The Indian team management is likely to stick to the same playing eleven, and will not try to disturb their winning combination. In the batting department. Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who failed in the first match, would like to rectify his mistakes in the second T20I against England, while in bowling department, pacers would like to display some disciplined bowling after leaking runs in the opening 10 overs of the first T20I.
