The second and must win T20I of the three-match series between India and England at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur turned out to be another thrilling contest between bat and ball. After restricting India to 144 for 8, the English batsman got off a decent start before openers Jason Roy and Sam Billings were both dismissed in the fourth over, by Ashish Nehra. Interestingly, the same had happened in the previous match as well, though the bowler was Yuzvendra Chahal. Captain Eoin Morgan then took charge along with Joe Root, and added 43-run partnership. But unlike the first T20I, Morgan departed for 17. After him, Ben Stokes did a commendable job in taking the charge but his departure for 38. Thereafter the match turned in favour of India.
