England cricket team will aim to hit back as they take on an upbeat Team India led by Virat Kohli on Friday (6th July) for the second match of the three-match T20I series. The question has subsequently been of England.
The English camp will deploy the services of spin-bowling machine "Merlyn" at Cardiff. That will extend beyond the nets, too, cedes Jordan: "Obviously the boys will be doing their homework". He has played a lot of T20 for us and he is a very experienced campaigner. "Personally no, I don't think I'd do that". We know we probably have to be a bit smarter against Kuldeep and their (other) spinners. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots that we played". India first lifted the inaugural World T20 in 2007 under his captaincy and then won the ICC World Cup 2011.
However, it is tough to see the Indian team management making space for him in the eleven after just one game. The right handed batsman has made 1455 runs with two fifties in the shortest format of the game before Friday's T20I at Cardiff. The better team beat us on the day.
Dhoni, who had retired from Test cricket in December 2014, played 90 Test matches, 318 ODIs and 92 T20Is till date to become the ninth player overall to reach the landmark. A solitary appearance in 2018 has not, however, dampened his enthusiasm for the competition. Sharing a photo from his midnight birthday celebration where Dhoni's face can be seen smeared with cake, Sakshi wrote that no words can do justice to how he is as a person. Indian skipper Virat Kohli will be expecting another dominant show from his side to set the tone for the long England tour. Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who failed in the first match, would like to rectify his mistakes in the second T20I against England, while in bowling department, pacers would like to display some disciplined bowling after leaking runs in the opening 10 overs of the first T20I. May you continue to give joy and happiness to people around you and beyond.
"You're on the battlefield, but as soon as the game finishes we can go and sit and have a chat and a drink like anyone else - and still be very good friends".
