2nd T20I, Preview: India vs England at Sophia Gardens
July 5 (CRICKETNMORE) - India will take on England in the second Twenty-20 International of the three-match rubber at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Friday.
After an eight-wicket victory over England at the Old Trafford, India will be aiming to clinch the series by winning the second T20I. Virat Kohli will be expecting another dominant show from his side to set the tone for the long England tour.
