India vs England 2nd T20: Motera pitch report
The Motera wicket for the first T20 International was dual paced in the first innings but ball came onto the bat nicely in the second innings as England opener went hammer and tongs during the powerplay. The pitch for the second T20 is likely to remain the same as the first. However, dew may play a major role in the second innings.
