Rahul came out to bat at number three ahead of skipper Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina, who had been the regular at this spot in T20Is this year since the tour of South Africa. Kuldeep Yadav excites me, he is tremendous.
Mind you, the match got stretched only because of debutant Jake Ball's horror last over that went for 22.
England had a very good start and were looking to score 250 at one stage.
England's big hitters at the top of the order Jos Buttler and Jason Roy were both out cheaply trying to get the early run rate up to Umesh Kumar. It is a stark reminder of their poor winning ratio nevertheless, having won only 5 out of their last 10 T20 internationals.
That brought Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan together at the crease and just as the pair were starting to get a partnership going, Morgan was removed by Hardik Pandya for six to leave the score on 134-3. After the highs of Manchester, the guests bungled and made an entire chaos of their innings.
Pandya reckoned it is still a learning phase in his career and every game teaches him a new lesson. In his third over, Morgan was dropped by Yuzvendra Chahal, who failed to hold on a skier.
Kohli conceded England played his spinners much better. The good thing for Team India was that by that time Chahal had already completed his full quota of 4 overs. "If you come and bowl the right lengths, and take wickets on this kind of pitch, eventually you will stop runs", Pandya said. Though the strategy looked ordinary when England openers blasted bowlers all around the park. "In the end if the team wins, even if I give 50 runs and don't take wickets, I am more than happy". Pacer Umesh Yadav was the only sucessful bowling, scalping two wickets. Plunkett, Willey, Ball andRashid picked up a wicket each while Shikhar Dhawan was runout.

Trumps kick off United Kingdom visit with black-tie gala
For former Remainers, it's nuts to think that trade deals with non-EU countries can ever make up for what might be lost. Prime Minister May will host the reception, attended by a bevy of British business leaders from a range of sectors.
Captain Virat Kohli (47 from 38) and Suresh Raina (27 from 20) then steadied the ship, with former skipper M. S. Dhoni, playing his 500th worldwide match a day before his 37th birthday, scored 32 from 24 to help India to a respectable total of 148. Even Rohit Sharma was batting at the other end and I am not comparing.
Rohit shared an 89-run stand with Virat Kohli and accelerated in the final overs to put India in control.
Chris Jordan's catch to dismiss KL Rahul was an astounding effort.

And no-one fought harder than Hales himself, as he clubbed England over the line with 58 not out from 41 balls to atone for his momentum-squandering knock of 8 from 18 in the opening match of the series.
Despite losing the second T20 on Friday, the visitors are still in contention for their sixth consecutive T20I series' win.
