23:01 (IST)

The five-match T20I series between the two top-ranked sides in the world just got a whole lot more interesting! After getting outplayed in the previous game, India bounced back in style with Virat Kohli rediscovering his touch with an unbeaten 73. What’s more, India have found an opener for the future in Ishan Kishan, who announced himself on international debut with a scintillating 56, and has pretty much relegated Shikhar Dhawan to the bench for the remainder of the series. Full credit to the Indian bowlers too for keeping it tight in the slog overs.

The series still is wide open, and it remains to be seen how Eoin Morgan and company respond to the defeat in two days’ time. For now, we bid you all good night. Thank you for following our live coverage of the 2nd T20I!

22:57 (IST)

Ishan Kishan, Player of the Match  

Kishan: Credit goes to my seniors who gave me confidence to go there and express myself. It is not easy to come and play against a top team. Mumbai Indians have taught me a lot in that regard. That shot did not go my way today. Today I got a good start and I wanted to finish the game and I was upset I could not. When T Curran bowled one and I smashed him for a six, that was the moment I felt I could hit more. I was feeling very happy that finally I am here and finally all the hard-work has paid off. This knock is a tribute to my coach's dad who passed away a few days ago. 

22:55 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: Quite a good game for us. We ticked all the boxes we wanted to, especially with the ball in the first innings. Very smart bowling by all our bowlers. Special mention to Washi. Bhuvi smart operator. Shardul bowled well. It did come on to the bat better, precisely why we chose to bat second on this surface, the dew helped make it better. Special mention to Ishan Kishan. He totally took the game away. Special innings on debut. When you play in the IPL with such dominance like he has against such quality bowlers… he is a fearless character and should continue to back his instincts. He was calculated, wasn’t reckless. Today that counterattacking innings of his and the partnership was what the team needed. (His innings) I had to shift the focus back to the basics for the game. I’ve always taken pride in doing the job for the team. When you have your family with you, then your management’s so good. (On Pandya bowling) I have to give credit to him for bowling at least three overs now. He is going to be a vital part of this team moving forward. It’s about managing his workload now. (On the opposition) You have to play at your best to beat them.

22:48 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, England captain: We were in and around par at half-way stage. India bowled well. Less pace in the first innings. Full credit to India for restricting us to this total. Biggest thing for us tonight is to play on the slow wickets. We want to play on such tracks as much as we can and learn and I am glad we played on this wicket but disappointed with the way we played. I think it is advantage in chasing, particularly with dew around. There was no dew today so credit to India. They (Buttler and Roy) are two aggressive guys. You cannot tell a lot to guy like Jos who plays like that. The next game is on a red soil, which looks like a rock and will turn.

A dot and a single off the next two deliveries, before Virat finishes it off in style with a four and a six off consecutive deliveries.India bounce back in style after getting outplayed in the previous game, winning by seven wickets this time with 13 balls to spare! Virat Kohli produces a captain’s knock, remaining unbeaten on 73, with Ishan Kishan (56) having set the foundation earlier in his company.

Preview, 2nd T20I: India will look to bounce back from the eight-wicket drubbing in the first T20I by England and level series in the second game at Motera in Ahmedabad.

England displayed all-round show in the first match, using the conditions to the best use, bowling out India cheaply before their top-four smashed the runs in quick time to seal the victory.

Led by Jofra Archer’s 3-23, England restricted India to 124-7.

Jason Roy and Jos Buttler opened with 72 and England won at 130-2 with 27 balls to spare.

Roy and Buttler raised 50 runs in the first six overs. Roy was out for 49, trapped leg before wicket by Washington Sundar, and Buttler made 28.

Jonny Bairstow was unbeaten on 26 and Dawid Malan on 24 after clubbing a winning six off Sundar.

Archer took a wicket off his second delivery when Lokesh Rahul played the fast bowler back onto his stumps. Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur fell in the paceman’s last over off successive deliveries.

Captain Virat Kohli, who struggled in the preceding 3-1 victory in the test series against England, fell for 0 to legspinner Adil Rashid as India fell to 3-20 in the first five overs and couldn’t recover.

Shreyas Iyer hit a fighting 67 off 48 balls in an otherwise below-par batting effort by India.

Kohli asserted at the end of the game that India batsman played bad shots and that was something that needs to be corrected in the next game.

"We just weren't aware enough of what we had to do on that kind of pitch, I think lack of execution of the shots that we tried to play out there in the middle is something we have to address as batsmen that it wasn't an ideal day on the park," said Kohli.

It would be interesting to see where Rohit Sharma is being rested for the first two games, returns to the side or not as India look to find answers at the top order with Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul both failing in the first match.

Also, Kohli might interested to play Navdeep Saini considering how India missed a fast bowler who can bowl in 140s.

Squads:

India: Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav, Rahul Tewatia, Navdeep Saini, T Natarajan, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Rahul Chahar

England: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Sam Billings, Reece Topley, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Liam Livingstone

Match Starts at 7 pm.
