INDvsENG: England’s resounding victory, Butler’s brilliant play, Morgan’s unique record!
INDvsENG : In the third match of the ongoing T20 series between India and England, England easily defeated Team India and took the lead in the series again. England celebrated their victory by defeating India by 8 wickets. Captain Virat Kohli’s unbeaten half-century helped England to a 157-run challenge. Chasing the challenge, opener Jose Butler smashed an unbeaten 83 to wash the Indian bowler. He was well supported by Bairstow who scored 40 not out. The win gives England a 2-1 lead in the T20 series.
England, who took the field with a challenge of 157 runs, did not have a good start. Jason Roy was dismissed for 9 by Yujvendra Chahal. David Malan was then dismissed for 18. But then Butler and Bairstone led the team to victory without any setbacks. Butler hit an unbeaten 83 off 52 balls with five fours and four sixes while Bairstow hit an unbeaten 40 off 28 balls with five fours.
Earlier, after winning the toss, England invited Team India to bat first. India scored 156 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 20 overs. Like the first match, Team India’s start in this match was very disappointing. While Lokesh Rahul was dismissed for a wicket, Rohit Sharma, who came on after a two-match break, could not make a big impact either. Ishan Kishan was also dismissed for four. Rishabh Pant was run out for 25. On the one hand, captain Virat’s unbeaten 77 off 46 balls with eight fours and four sixes gave the team a good lead.
England captain Ian Morgan’s special record
England captain Ian Morgan has set a special record against India. Morgan became the first cricketer to play 100 international Twenty20 matches for England. Morgan made his T20 cricket debut against the Netherlands in 2009, 12 years ago. Morgan became the fourth player in the world to play 100 or more T20 internationals. Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan is at number one, India’s Rohit Sharma is at number two and New Zealand’s Ross Taylor is at number three.
