India v England, 2nd Q20I: Virat Kohli dances with Edgbaston Crowd.  watch |  cricket news

Team India took a decisive victory over England in the second T20I at Edgbaston in Birmingham. With the victory, India opened an undisputed 2-0 lead in the series ahead of the final game in Nottingham on Sunday. The second T20I also marked the return of several first-team players in the game XI, including former captain Virat Kohli. While the Indian team produced an overall performance, Kohli’s lean patch with the bat continued. Going out to bat no. 3, Kohli was fired in one by rookie Richard Gleeson.

However, that didn’t stop Kohli from having fun with the Edgbaston crowd as he played near the long border.

In a video shared by Sony Sports Network, Kohli was seen dancing with fans between deliveries.

Fans also shared videos of Kohli dancing in front of them at the border line.

After being put at bat, India bounced back from an upper and middle order meltdown to post 170 for eight in 20 overs.

India were staggering at 89 for five before Ravindra Jadeja’s 29-ball undefeated 46 helped them reach a challenging total.

For England, Chris Jordan took four wickets while debutant Richard Gleeson pocketed the three big wickets of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and Kohli.

In response, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah broke the backbone of England’s batting lineup, taking three and two wickets respectively.

Yuzvendra Chahal also scalped two dismissals, while Hardik Pandya and Harshal Patel each made a wicket, while England were eliminated by a paltry 121 total with three overs to spare.
