The weather is expected to remain pleasant with no signs of rain and humidity of about 40%. However, we should expect a batting friendly pitch that can assist the spinners to some extent with a high scoring encounter on the cards.

India won the first T20I against England by 8 wickets with 10 balls to spare taking a 1-0 lead in the series. And the point was that we haven't played in those wet and damp conditions ever as a team.

Despite losing his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan in the first over, Rohit Sharma (32) combined with Rahul to stitch together a partnership of 123 in quick time to put the visitors on the path to victory, which they achieved for the loss of only two wickets.

India suffered a blow as Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the T20I series, but bowling is a department India won't be much concerned about. India chased the target down easily in 18.2 overs.

The battle between English batsmen and India's wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will prove to be decisive. Hardik Pandya has is the all-rounder who's grown a lot as a fast bowler and he will be entrusted with the 5th bowler's duties.

"Looking at how convincing we were in all three skill-sets gives me great please as captain, especially some of the younger guys stepping up and doing the job". It will be interesting to find whether his replacement Deepak Chahar gets his maiden cap even though senior pro Umesh Yadav looks more likely replacement. However, his place in the India XI was still not guaranteed.

Rahul's unbeaten century (101*; 55 balls, 10x4, 5x6) had not only given India a winning start, but importantly, Kuldeep and he have given England plenty to worry about right from the start.

The openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy have been in tremendous form and will look to continue the same form against the strong side. Therein, they did endure a torrid time in the tri-series against the latter two sides (earlier in March), losing three out of four games. England didn't require his services with the bat but we've witnessed how risky he can be on his day.

Belgium stunned the Japanese side, however, with a flurry of late goals to take the win 3-2. The players had also saluted their supporters after the crushing loss.

"We were probably about 30 or 40 short", said Morgan. "It doesn't matter if I get runs or I don't get runs, what I want is the team to play well and the team to win", he insisted. They have a batting order that can destroy the most lethal of bowling attacks and it is this department that India will be a bit anxious about.
