IND vs ENG Live Score and Commentary

Following a rust-induced showing in the opening T20I, India stepped onto Nagpur needing a victory the stay alive the series. On a sluggish surface, England won the toss and chose to chase. Riding on KL Rahul’s attacking knock, the hosts managed to compile a fighting total. 

Though Ashish Nehra set the tone by picking up a couple of early wickets, the visitors resurrected their chances in the middle-overs. When it seemed like the target was in touching distance, Jasprit Bumrah’s world-class death bowling helped India clinch a thrilling 5-run victory and set up a decider in Bangalore.
