England will take on India in the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Saturday.

The visitors are leading the series 1-0 after winning the opening game by 50 runs. The Rohit Sharma-led side will focus on recording another triumph to seal the series. On the other hand, today’s game is a do-or-die contest for England to stay alive.

India are also expected to make a few changes in their playing as stars like Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant are available from now on.

Head-to-Head record:

Played: 20 | ENG won: 09 | IND won: 11 | No result: 0

Pitch Report:

The track at Edgbaston tends to get slow as the game progresses, so batting first is always a handy option in Birmingham. In the eight T20 Blast games played here this season, teams batting first have won five of those matches.
