IND vs ENG: India aims to win back lost pride at Ahmedabad

India once again gets ready to take on Team England for the second match in the five-match T20I series on Sunday evening with every hope to win back the pride after an eight-wicket defeat on 12 March. India’s batting stars aim to put up an improved batting effort to secure India’s first win of the series.

India witnessed a batting failure with three early dismissals – Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli. It was India’s first shorter format match in three months that set light upon team’s rusty form. With T20 World Cup just around the corner, Friday’s defeat uncovered team’s fitness account.

Virat Kohli led team has been on a dominant front for last two years with last three successful T20 series. The Indian team expects to keep up with the winning record and bounce back with a win on Sunday.
