India vs England 2st T20I Highlights:

22:30 (IST)14 Mar 2021
India win by seven wickets, level series!

Kohli seals the deal in style with a four and a humongous six against Jordan! He guides his team alongside Iyer to the target of 165, and honestly, India made it look easy. All credit to the captain and the debutant Kishan, who scored 56. IND: 166/3 (17.5 overs)

22:26 (IST)14 Mar 2021
India need 11 runs from 18 balls

England try to make a late comeback through Rashid and Archer. After the spinner conceded just four singles, Archer tries to maintain the economy with some tight bowling. Kohli smacks him for a four, and it's evident that it's too late. IND: 154/3 (17 overs)

22:14 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Kohli hits 26th T20I fifty with a maximum!

Kohli hits his 26th T20I half century and he does it in some style! He races down the ground, meets the ball on a fuller length and lifts the ball over deep mid-off. Three fours and two sixes in 35 balls. A true captain's innings from him. IND: 143/3 (15 overs)

22:08 (IST)14 Mar 2021

Pant carries on with his blitzkrieg as he punishes Jordan for a four and a six in two straight balls. Kohli tries to calm him down after his maximum. But Jordan bites back in the very next ball with a caught behind. Pant walks back on 26. IND: 130/3 (13.4 overs)

21:59 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Pant find his rhythm with a six

After Sam Curran's rather economical over, conceding just five singles... Pant (10*) finds his rhythm. The wicketkeeper-batsman has been in fine form and he takes after his 2016 U19 World Cup teammate as he hits Rashid for a six! IND: 111/2 (12 overs)

21:48 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Kishan hits maiden fifty, gets dismissed!

Kishan shows off his exemplary confidence with the bat as he smacks Rashid for two straight sixes in the opening two balls of the over to hit his maiden half-century off just 28 balls. Five fours and four sixes too. But the spinner bites back later in the over after putting the 22-year-old under pressure. Kishan walks back on 56 after being dismissed via a LBW. IND: 94/2 (10 overs)

21:41 (IST)14 Mar 2021

India are enjoying the show now... Stokes comes into the attack and he's absolutely flayed by the dynamic duo at the crease. Two sixes -- one by Kohli, another by Kishan. Kishan carries the momentum into the next over and hits a four. IND: 75/1 (8 overs)

21:29 (IST)14 Mar 2021
India bring up half-century at end of powerplay

Judging by his confidence, Kohli looks imperious tonight. Although he was dismissed for two straight ducks, he's already up to 22 from 15 balls now, hitting three boundaries. After a six and two fours, Kishan is on 27* on the other side. IND: 50/1 (6 overs)

Virat Kohli in T20I run chases at home: 70, 21, 29, 23, 55*, 82*, 22*, 65, 72*, 94*, 30*

21:19 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Kohli, Kishan take charge of the run-chase

India look motivated even after losing a wicket in the first over... Kishan (11*) smacks Curran for a four with a pull towards deep mid-wicket. Kohli (10*) then finds his groove and comes up with a similar pull shot for a four against Archer. IND: 22/1 (4 overs)

21:11 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Kishan punishes Archer with a calm boundary

Ishan Kishan starts his international career brightly! Archer comes into the attack and off the first ball itself, Kishan tickles it away calmly towards fine leg for four. Kohli opens his account too with a single, first run in three innings for him! IND: 6/1 (2 overs)

21:05 (IST)14 Mar 2021

Surprise, surprise! Ishan Kishan walks out to open for India alongside KL Rahul. Curran restarts the proceedings with the ball... and he puts Rahul under pressure with five straight dots. On the final ball, he dismisses Rahul with a caught behind. IND: 0/1 (1 over)

20:49 (IST)14 Mar 2021
India need 165 runs to win

Shardul pops up with a bit of magic -- first, dismissing Stokes and second, conceding six runs in the final over. England finish on 164/6 with Curran and Jordan in the middle. Roy top-scored with 46, while Washington and Shardul took two wickets each.

20:44 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Stokes aims for big finish

India have taken control of the contest somewhat, putting Stokes (23*) and Sam Curran under pressure. But the former's class reaps rewards for England as he hits a vital boundary off Bhuvneshwar. Just one more over to go. ENG: 158/5 (19 overs)

20:36 (IST)14 Mar 2021

The danger-man's gone! Morgan is sent back to the dressing room after India built up the pressure in the last two overs. Shardul gets his reward with a slower ball... Morgan top-edges it and Pant gets under the ball behind the wicket. ENG: 142/5 (17.1 overs)

20:29 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Morgan, Stokes rage on against India

Into the final five! India will want to pick wickets and stifle England, while their batsmen will have other ideas. ENG: 129/4 (15 overs)

20:20 (IST)14 Mar 2021

Kohli's ecstatic as his spinner does the trick yet again! Washington gets his second wicket of the night and it's a big one. Bairstow (20) misjudges the bounce, gets a massive top-edge and Yadav takes the catch near deep midwicket. ENG: 119/4 (13.5 overs)

20:18 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Morgan ups the ante, hits two fours

With his team three down and dwindling in the middle overs, skipper Morgan comes to the rescue. He takes on Shardul and first edges one to the ropes behind Pant. Then a boundary over cover and another four leg byes off the helmet. ENG: 111/3 (13 overs)

20:05 (IST)14 Mar 2021

Another day, another dismissal in his 40s! Roy will certainly be ruing his shot selection tonight! Washington lures him out for a big shot but his swipe across the line failed... as Bhuvneshwar takes the catch. The batsman departs on 46. ENG: 91/3 (11.1 overs)

19:57 (IST)14 Mar 2021
Roy, Bairstow keep things going for England

Despite scalping a vital wicket, Chahal went for 10 runs in the previous over... almost characteristically. Pandya continues his spell and puts some pressure on the visitors -- Roy (44*) and Bairstow (5*). India need more wickets now. ENG: 83/2 (10 overs)

19:48 (IST)14 Mar 2021

After getting smacked for a six in the previous over by Roy, Chahal has his revenge. He takes on his partner Malan (24) and traps him between the wickets. India take a review and it's plumb. The conventional slog-sweep cost him. ENG: 64/2 (8.2 overs)
