England has made a great start to the five-match T20 series after winning the first T20 against India by 8 wickets on Friday. India exhibited a poor show with the bat as they score just 124 runs in the first innings. England chased down the total in just 15.3 overs.
Meanwhile, Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has surpassed Jasprit Bumrah to claim the most number of wickets for India in the T20s. Prior to the start of the game, both Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah were tied at 59 wickets.
Yuzvendra Chahal took the wicket of Jos Buttler in the seventh over of the second innings to claim 60 wickets and thereby became the most successful T20 bowler for India in terms of the number of wickets. He bowled complete 4 overs in the game, picking 1 wicket for 44 runs.
Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the premier fast bowlers for India in white-ball cricket. In ODI cricket, he has 92 wickets to his name in 54 matches at an average of 27.3
Indian bowlers failed to put early pressure on England while restricting a low total. England lost their first wicket at 72 runs in the eighth over of the innings. However, until then the damage had been done. Nevertheless, the fans would expect a better performance from the Men in Blue in the next game. The second match will be played on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium.
