Good start for India as the visitors began their white-ball series with a win against mighty England. Both batsman and bowlers have done their job brilliantly to put the home team under pressure throughout the game.
With the focus moving back to Edgbaston, the venue that hosted the dramatic Test match will now host the 2nd T20 game. The members of the Indian Test squad, along with their head coach, Rahul Dravid, will join the white ball squad for this game.

India will have the services of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah in places of Ruturaj Gaekwad, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Venkatesh Iyer, and Arshdeep Singh.
The Indian batting unit looked well and played with a positive intent throughout the innings. They will now have selection issues in picking the players to replace with the incoming players for the 2nd T20I. The bowlers have bowled with a serious intention of picking wickets right from the first over.
England, on the other hand, looked out of contention to pose a threat to their opposition. Their batters looked without clarity on what they were doing, and they will start with finding the lost intent to be back in the most important 2nd game. A loss in this game will be the series lost for the home team.
No rain is expected around the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, but one can expect it to be very cloudy conditions. Dark clouds can provide an edge to the bowlers as the ball can seem to be moving well.
We can expect a full 40 overs of the match, as the rain chances are minimal.

IND vs ENG Predictions
India played brilliantly in the last game and outsmarted the English side in all departments, so they will also start as favorites to win this game. Couldn’t say the toss played a big part in the Southampton game, as the pitch looked the same throughout. But in Edgbaston, with the weather seeming to play a role in the game, it can make the pitch swing according to that.
With the previous game's loss, England will look to bounce back faster. Jos Buttler, their captain, who was dismissed for a duck in the 1st game, would like to change things around in the upcoming games. However, it will be a game of great entertainment for the fans of the game. You can bet on IND vs ENG with our Bet365 Cricket betting guide.
ENG vs IND 2nd T20 Dream11 Predictions
Find out the top IND vs ENG predictions for your Dream11 fantasy team below:
Captain: Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya was the pick of the 1st T20I game between the teams. With 50 runs with the bat and 4 wickets with the ball, the Indian all-rounder proved to be the big difference between the sides. He has been a revelation since his comeback in the IPL – an easy pick for your Dream11 captaincy role.
Vice Captain: Jos Buttler
One cannot judge the England captain for his failure in the 1st game. With the type of form he is in, he will be back in no time. With him behind the stumps as the side's wicketkeeper, one can expect a few fantasy points from him for the grabs behind the stumps.
Winning Dream11 Team
Suryakumar Yadav, Moeen Ali, Rohit Sharma, Jos Buttler, Hardik Pandya, Harshal Patel, Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan
