Team India has got off to a flying start against England in the second innings of the second T20I at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has once again proved his worth with the new ball, dismissing both the openers. Skipper Jos Buttler was the latest to get dismissed in the second T20I, thanks to a brilliant catch by wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant.

England lost their opener Jason Roy on the very first delivery of the innings off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Soon skipper Jos Buttler followed him back to the hut. In the third over of the innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled an angled in delivery. Seeing the width, Buttler tried to go for the drive. However, the ball took the toe-end of the bat.

Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant completed the rest, by taking a brilliant reflex catch. As the ball hit the toe-end of the bat, it kept low making it harder for Pant. However, the wicket-keeper kept his focus to send Buttler back to the hut. The umpire had signaled not out but had to reverse his decision after India opted for the review.

Watch the dismissal here:

 

Jos Buttler managed four runs during his five-ball stay at the crease. This was the second time in the series that Buttler got out to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. In the first T20I, Buttler scored a golden duck as he got bowled to an inswinger from Bhuvneswar Kumar.

England in trouble after losing four for 41

The England cricket team is in a spot of bother having lost four wickets for just 41 runs on the board. They need to chase down 171 runs to equal the three-match T20I series 1-1. England skipper Jos Buttler along with Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, and Harry Brook is already back in the pavilion.

For India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been the pick of the bowlers, taking two wickets. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal have picked one each. Earlier, in the match, England debutant Richard Gleeson took three wickets to restrict India to 170 runs. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was the top scorer with 46 runs in the innings.
