In INDIA Vs ENGLAND Virat and company came 1-1 in T20’s five-game series. After a crushing loss in Game 1, the team won Game 2, performing brilliantly in all departments. The problem with the first pair team still remains. Lokesh Rahul also failed in the second game in a row.
However, the young Ishaan Kishan, who was judged in place of Shikhar Dhawan, increased the difficulties of this first game by hitting a four on the spot.
It remains to be seen whether Kohli is betting on Rahul again with Ishaan or vice-captain Rohit Sharma on the bench for the final two matches. India’s goal is to find the right combination for the T20 World Cup in October. Chances are, Rohit opens with Ishaan.
