Birmingham: The second T20I match between England and India will be played on 9th July at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. It is the same ground where India played the fifth Test match recently. With players like Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja are set to join the T20I side from Edgbaston, the Indian cricket fans are expecting a plethora of changes to happen for India’s playing eleven in the second T20I match of the series. On the other hand, having lost the first match of the series, England would look to bounce back and win the T20I series.

Weather will play a crucial role in the second match. The clouds are expected to hover over the Edgbaston Cricket Ground. The temperature is expected to hover around 19 C on the matchday with 65% humidity and 10-12 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.

Bowlers from both teams will look to increase their effectiveness in the cloudy condition. The pitch of the Edgbaston Cricket Ground is very batting-friendly. The surface will assist the batters once again in today’s match. Pacers might get some assistance in the second half of the match. The spin bowlers will be crucial in the middle overs and they will look to get more wickets when batsmen charge at them to increase the run rate.
