India outplayed England in the first T20I and they are 1-0 up in the three-match series. Hardik Pandya starred both with the bat and bowl as he smashed 33-ball 51 and scalped 4 wickets.
Star India batter Virat Kohli would be desperate to come out of his prolonged lean patch when he makes his T20 return after five months with the second game against England, on Saturday. Kohli, who last played a T20 international in February, has featured in only two games since India’s underwhelming campaign in the T20 World Cup in October-November when he was captain of the national side. It will be interesting to see what sort of combination Indian team management are planning to play.
