India beat England by 49 runs
Right then, two games are done and it is India who have sealed the series 2-0. There is still one more game to go and well it might be a dead rubber, it is more about momentum going into the ODI series. India will be eyeing a clean sweep while England will be looking to make it 2-1 and get into the ODI series with some confidence behind them. The next match starts in less than 24 hours, on Sunday, the 10th of July. The first ball will be bowled at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT) but our coverage will begin much sooner. Do join us then. Take care and goodbye!
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3-1-15-3) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH  for his exceptional display with the new ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar says that when the ball swings one enjoys it a lot. Tells that there has not been a lot of swing with the white ball in England in the last few games and he is happy to get some good swing here. Mentions that Jos Buttler is a dangerous player and he has his plans against him and he tries to execute that. Mentions that whenever it swings it is easy to plan and execute it and he tries to work on his strength and is confident in his skills. Regarding his fitness, Bhuvneshwar Kumar says that he does not want to talk about it and signs off by saying that as he is playing, something is going right at the moment.
Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma says that they know how good England is as a team and they were up for the challenge. Adds that they were clinical and they had a clear idea of what to do. Mentions that whenever you win games, it gives you confidence and they want to just focus on what lies ahead and they want to challenge themselves more and more as a group. Adds that it was a brilliant knock under pressure from Ravindra Jadeja, who used all his experience and seems to be confident in what he wants to do and it was good to finish off on a score that he thought was par. Says that they understand the importance of the Powerplay and want to put pressure on the opposition and they did have a superb Powerplay in both matches which set up the victory. Ends by saying that they want to give others an opportunity but will have to have a chat about it and the only issue here is not getting carried away and keep on performing.
Jos Buttler, the captain of England says that it is very disappointing and says that they did not play well and they did not deserve to win. Tells that at the halfway mark they were quite happy with Richard Gleeson bowling well on debut but they lost wickets early and in the hindsight says that they would have batted first but overall they did not play well. Applauds Richard Gleeson for his performance in the debut game and also talks about Chris Jordan and says that he has bowled quite well and he is happy for Jordan. Ends by saying that they need to be better in the next game though they don’t have much time to reflect on the loss.
Presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Jos Buttler won the toss and put India in to bat which didn't turn out to be the right decision as the English bowlers got hammered in the Powerplay. The debutant, Richard Gleeson picked up three quick wickets to change the momentum a bit and then Chris Jordan kept up the good work. However, the Indian batters kept on finding the fence towards the end and thanks to a blistering cameo from Ravindra Jadeja, the visitors reached a decent score of 170. While chasing a stiff target, the English innings could never gather any sort of momentum due to some excellent pace bowling from the opposition and a fragile display with the bat as well. In the end, it was a very comfortable victory for India and they keep their record of not losing a T20I series against England. Stay tuned for the presentation.
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for England once again. Their highly-rated top order crumbled early as Jason Roy and Jos Buttler had no answer to the swing and seam of the Indian pacers. And with wickets falling, they tried to play explosive cricket which didn't work. With half the side out for just 55 runs, the hosts were down and out. Moeen Ali did provide some hope of a comeback but perished soon and it was then David Willey who hit some lusty blows to make the loss look a little less dreadful. Given the hosts' prowess in white-ball cricket, they will be thoroughly disappointed with that display.
India had a competitive total on the board but given England's explosive top order, the visitors needed an early breakthrough. Bhuvneshwar Kumar provided just that as he did last time around. Jasprit Bumrah and Kumar then kept on pressing the issue and picked up three wickets inside the first 5 overs. This set the tone for the others and the visitors just kept on picking up wickets at regular intervals. The two front-line seamers were excellent with Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya supporting them well. Only Ravindra Jadeja had an off day with the ball but all in all, another strong showing with the ball and in the field from India has seen them take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
A resounding victory for India and they have sealed the three-match T20I series with a game to spare! This has been yet another strong all-round showing from the visitors and England have had not much answer to it.

OUT! KNOCKED HIM OVER! Harshal Patel finishes things off with a perfect yorker! He bowls it right in the blockhole at 131 kph. Matt Parkinson who needed to see off this last delivery, just could not get his bat down in time and sees his leg stump uprooted. It has been a brilliant performance yet again from India as they win by 49 runs!

Hardik Pandya To Chris Jordan OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Absolutely catastrophic for Chris Jordan and England. Back of a length, on off, Jordan plays it off the back foot and in front of mid-wicket. Jordan looks for two straightaway as the fielder charging in is Yuzvendra Chahal but David Willey says no. Jordan is already halfway down the track and the throw is in a good one. Rohit Sharma at the bowler's end whips off the bails and Jordan can keep walking back to the pavilion.
Chris Jordan walks out to the middle.

So change of ends for Jasprit Bumrah. He is back into the attack!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Liam Livingstone
Another big appeal, for LBW this time but it is turned down again. Rohit Sharma doesn't review it this time. Bhuvneshwar Kumar goes a bit wider and bowls the big inswinger, Liam Livingstone looks to drive through cover-point but misses and gets rapped on the pads. The impact though seems to have been outside off and maybe there was an inside edge on it too.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Liam Livingstone
FOUR! Easy as for Livingstone this time. Goes fuller but ends up serving a half-volley around off, Livingstone punches it through the cover region to make it back-to-back boundaries.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Liam Livingstone
FOUR! Liam Livingstone doesn't care about wickets falling down! Length and there's movement in the air too, Livingstone just walks across to counter the swing and flicks it into the square leg fence with utmost ease.
Liam Livingstone walks out at number 4!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Brilliant take from Rishabh Pant behind the stumps and a brilliant review as well. This is on a length and pushed wider by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the keeper has been called up to the stumps for Jos Buttler who tries to slap it away but seems to have missed it. Appeal for caught behind and the keeper and bowler are sure of it. It is turned down but Rohit Sharma has reviewed it. UltraEdge shows that there is indeed a bottom edge on it. Buttler departs early yet again and Bhuvi has two quick wickets. India right on top of proceedings here.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Dawid Malan
A huge shout for LBW but it is turned down and after a long thought, Rohit Sharma opts not to review. Length ball, around leg stump and the ball shapes back in a bit. Dawid Malan gets caught on the crease and gets hit high on the pads. Bhuvneshwar Kumar with a top first over, a wicket-maiden!

Peach! Length again, on a tighter line around off and this time the ball just holds its line. Dawid Malan plays inside the line of the ball as the ball goes agonizingly past the outside edge.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Jason Roy OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND GONE! Jason Roy is a goner off the very first ball and Bhuvneshwar Kumar with yet another early breakthrough. Starts off on a perfect length does Bhuvi and makes the ball swing away from around off stump. Roy is rooted to his crease and there's no foot movement as he tries to drive away from the body. Roy almost ends up passing the ball to Rohit Sharma at first slip who takes a sharp catch. Wicket off the first ball of the chase and England already up against it.
