England will take on India in the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Saturday.
The visitors are leading the series 1-0 after winning the opening game by 50 runs. The Rohit Sharma-led side will focus on recording another triumph to seal the series. On the other hand, today’s game is a do-or-die contest for England to stay alive.
India are also expected to make a few changes in their playing as stars like Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant are available from now on.
