India trounced England by 8 wickets in the first T20 International of the 3-match series, at Old Trafford, Manchester, with Kuldeep Yadav taking 5 for 24 and KL Rahul scoring a sublime hundred. The teams now move to the second match of the series, at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, where England will somehow have to decipher Kuldeep to keep themselves afloat in the series. Ahead of the match, here is a statistical preview:

12 T20Is between England and India so far and both sides have won 6 each. However, on English soil the head-to-head reads 3-1 in favour of England.

8 most wickets in India-England T20Is, by Harbhajan Singh and Yuzvendra Chahal. Of England bowlers, Jade Dernbach (7) has most. However, if one considers only players in current squads, Chris Jordan heads the English list with 5.

19 runs needed by Rohit Sharma (1,981) to reach the 2,000-run mark. Rohit will become the 2nd Indian and 5th overall to the mark, after Martin Guptill (2,271), Brendon McCullum (2,140), Shoaib Malik (2,067), and Virat Kohli (2,012).
