IND vs ENG 2nd T20I Highlights: India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in three-match series after beating England by 49 runs in the second T20I at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Chasing a target of 171, England were bowled out for 121 with Bhuvneshwar Kumar taking three wickets. Moeen Ali and David Willey put in a fight but England kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal bagged two wickets each while Hardik Pandya also picked a wicket. Earlier, Ravindra Jadeja’s 46 not out off 29 balls steered India to 170/8 in 20 overs against England in the ongoing second T20I at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Earlier, Richard Gleeson and Chris Jordan had kept England in the driver’s seat but Jadeja still found a way to take India to a fighting total. Gleeson claimed the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli while Jordan dismissed Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Earlier, England captain Jos Buttler had opted to bowl first against India. Rohit and Pant provided India a flying start but Gleeson tilted the game in favour of England. It is a crucial game for Team India as they eye a series-clinching win against the hosts in the three-match series. Notably, India won the first match by 50 runs. (SCORECARD)
