England level the series

The second T20 match between England and India was held on Mumbai yesterday. India already have lead the series 1-0 expected to win, but unfortunately their inexperienced fast bowlers let them down. The match turned out a thriller takes up to the last ball, where England need 3 to win. Ashok Dinda tried to bowl a yorker which was slipped out as a full toss. Eoin Morgan says thank you and dispatched it straight above the bowler's head for a longest six of 92 meters. The victory was also their highest successful chase in T20 International.

Earlier, England won the toss and elected to field first. India started slowly and also lose Rahane earlier for 3. Gambhir and Kohli established a steady partnership. Kohli dispatched english bowlers all around the ground. he encountered Luke wright with four boundaries in a over. He was given lbw at 37 to Meaker in the next over. Yuvraj singh was also gone very early for 4. India also loses the miserable Gambhir who hits 17 of 27 balls. Rohit sharma made 24 of 19 balls. It was Dhoni and Raina who turns the match towards india. Raina smashes Meaker for 3 fours and a six in a over. Dhoni muscles his shoulder for a couple of huge sixes. India reaches a reasonable total of 177 for 8. Dhoni made 38 and Raina made 35.

England has to make their highest successful chase ever to level the series. Lumb and Hales smashed all indian main bowlers. Indian bowlers never seems like getting wickets neither control the run rate.  England scored 79 of first 8 overs. It was again Yuvraj who turns the tale by getting lumb for 50. Easy stumping for Dhoni. Luke wright was never look comfortable and lost to Yuvraj's second over. Morgan and hales tries to steady the ship. Hales was gone in Yuvi's last over. Morgan set his eyes and dispatch the ball. With 23 need of 12 balls. Indian bowlers fail to keep their cool. Pawna was taken for 13 in the penultimate over. Dinda was smashed for 6 on the lass ball of the match.
