Battle 1: Ishan Kishan Versus England’s Fast Bowlers
England vs India: Even if there was a script written by Ishan Kishan himself, the former U-19 batsman would have thought twice before giving himself a strong role amidst all the experienced superstars alongside him. But he announced himself in a way that you feel a star is born, an alluding thought in the back of your mind that this is the future of Indian cricket.
But with the heightened hopes, comes the pressure. The expectations can be unjust and they are most times. But Kishan will strike fear in the mind of bowlers, and for the immediate outcome of the series, how he plays will determine the winner.

Battle 3: England’s Death-Over Batting | India’s Bowling At The End
You have to watch India vs England 2nd T20I, if you haven’t already, to believe the extent of the struggles of the Eoin Morgan’s team’s batting at the death overs. A mere discussion won’t be enough. It was both joy and hard to watch the events unfolding, for England looked out of ideas, while the Indian bowling unit was more determined, and with a specific plan.
If India bowls first, or rack up a daunting total in case of batting first, in any case, England will have to bat better if they are to get the win here. They surely can.
