India took a 1-0 lead over England after an easy win in the first T20 International of the 3-match series, at Old Trafford, Manchester. England were placed comfortably at 95 for 1 in the 12th over before Kuldeep Yadav struck. He removed Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, and Jos Buttler to restrict England to 159 for 8. Then KL Rahul scored a sublime unbeaten 102 to take India to a win with 10 balls to spare. Here are some highlights from the match:
