So that’s the series tied up at 1-1 as India win a thriller. Nehra and Bumrah were so, so good at the death, having the confidence to bowl full and aim for the yorkers despite the dew on the ball and Jos Buttler at the crease. England will rue two key, shocking lbw decisions but don’t let that detract from the performances of those two.
For England, Stokes and Root batted very well and their seamers and Moeen outstanding with the ball. Bowling has been their weakness in limited overs cricket so, after a second strong performance on the spin, they might be disappointed their batsmen failed to chase an achievable target.
The series moves on, then, to Bangalore on Wednesday for the decider. Do join us again then. Cheers for reading and for telling me that you’re reading. Bye!
