The second in a three-match series takes place on Saturday (14:30UK time) with India hoping to seal a series victory following their victory in the first match on Thursday.
India picked up a 50 run victory on Thursday with England putting in a subpar performance and failing to make 150 runs. India were very consistent throughout the order with three of their middle order hitting 30 runs or more.
By contrast, England struggled at the wicket with Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone both being bowled for ducks. Ali Moeen was the only player on the English side to reach 30 runs leaving the 198 total set by India too far to reach.

Match prediction: England to comeback with statement win
It wasn’t a good day at the office for England on Thursday evening with India setting them a target of 199 to win and England falling well short with just 148 runs. The 50 run loss wasn’t good enough at all and the hosts will know they have to find a win at Edgbaston to keep themselves in the series.
Five runs in the first two overs set the tone for the home side and they’ll need a much quicker start to try and get nearer 200. India, on the other hand, raced into a healthy total hitting the boundary five times in the first 18 balls and ended up on 29 runs after their first three hours. A boundary to be hit in each of the 1st 3 overs of the match seems like a decent bet regardless of who opts to bat first.
With India having a stronger squad than the first international, England will really have to up their game and show why they are considered the 2nd best T20 side in the world. Jos Buttler in particular will be keen to get back to his best following his 0 on Thursday and he’s England’s best chance of a high run total based on his season in the IPL. With the series on the line, England will be looking for a big total and we’re backing them to pick up the win on Saturday but with India still having a lot of class in the batting order, we think both sides will score 160 or more runs.
