India win the series

India clinches the series with a game in hand.

India have beaten England by 55 runs in the second T20I here in Bengaluru to take an unassailable two nil lead in the 3 match series. Earlier in the day England captain Ed Hossel again won the toss and this time he put the hosts in. The captain himself led from the front and struck with the first ball of the match. The English bowlers bowled tight lines as they picked 4 Indian wickets in the first eight overs. Captain Ajay Reddy along with Pankaj Bhue steadied the ship with a hundred run partnership and posted a daunting target for the visitors.

Chasing a huge target the English batsmen were never in the hunt as the Indian bowlers chipped in with regular wickets. The visitors put up a valiant fight but in the end fell short of the target. The final match of the 3 match series will be played at the same ground tomorrow from 10: 30 am.
