India lay down their marker as spin takes a backseat

India vs England Live Cricket Score 2nd T20 Live Streaming IND vs ENG 2nd T20 in Cardiff

India can reclaim the top spot in the International Cricket Council ODI rankings if it blanks England 3-0 in the three-match series beginning on July 12.

Earlier, India won the toss and made a decision to bowl first.

This is India's sixth consecutive T20I series' win, which is part of an unbeaten run stretching back to September 2017.

"The momentum does ebb and flow throughout the game and the series".

"He comes into the squad for the next game and he is a fantastic player and it will be a hard decision to make", Morgan told reporters after the Cardiff win. He has scored 7,495 runs at an astonishing average of 61.43 at and made 28 out of his 35 ODI tons while batting at this position. The challenge for England this series will be to handle the Indian spinners and this will be the decisive factor.

The left-hander was making a comeback in the national side after a decent outing with Chennai Super Kings in 2018 Indian Premier League.

Fest likely in France-Belgium match
Statistically speaking, France had Belgium's number when it came to taking shots for most of the game. Their current position puts them behind Colombia (16th) who England beat in the round-of-16.

During the England innings, Indian wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni also became the first wicket keeper to complete 50 catches in T20Is by taking five catches.

In the end, India clinching the T20 series 2-1.

Later, Stokes holed out to Kohli at mid off and once again in the same over Bairstow, who was looking good after smacking two fours and sixes, nicked a half volley to the keeper. But the ease with which India knocked off the runs suggested they could have chased even that amount - and quite possibly another 20 or so on top of that - with confidence.

But numerous decisive factors in this series - the variety of India's bowling, the strength of their batting - will apply to 50-over cricket, too. He played just 2 matches giving away 64 runs and picking up 1 wicket. And, tellingly, they were delivered at greater pace - both Deepak Chahar and Umesh Yadav bowled quicker deliveries than anything managed by any England bowler - and greater control than England could manage. Virat Kohli (the captain) asked me and I told him I was okay - if you come and take wickets on this type of wicket and ground it will stop the runs. He rattled the English batsmen in the first game, but failed to make an impact in the second game and eventually sitting on the bench for the third game. Spin twins Kuldeep Yadav (39 wickets in 20 ODIs) and Yuzvendra Chahal (43 wickets in 23 ODIs) will hold the key after their heroics since they were introduced to the team after last year's Champions Trophy.

"That total isn't defendable when a guy comes out and plays like that on a small ground".

It is a wholesome winning start for India in their long summer tour in England.
