India beat England by five runs in second T20 International to level three-match series

New Delhi :

What a match! What a turnaround from Bumrah and Nehra at the end. The duo were sensational in their use of off-cutters combined with some brilliant yorkers. The off-cutters more so. England were cruising when Stokes and Root were going. But it was always going to be about one wicket on this sluggish pitch. 

England have been keeping it tight in the last couple of over. Rahul finally managed to get hold of a back of a length delivery, only to find the fielder stationed at deep midwicket. He didn't have to move an inch. He has done his job though. India's scorecard would have looked miserable if not for his knock.
