England slumped to a series defeat to India as they again faltered with the bat, bowled out for 121 in a heavy 49-run defeat in the second T20 international at Edgbaston.

Although England were improved with the ball – Richard Gleeson (3-15) enjoying a sensational international debut – to restrict India to 170-8, in reply their top order was blasted out for the second successive game.

Jason Roy followed Jos Buttler’s first-ball duck in Thursday night’s opening defeat with one of his own here, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3-15) again getting the ball to talk early as an outswinger took Roy’s outside edge through to slip.

Buttler (4) swiftly followed his partner back to the pavilion in Bhuvneshwar’s second over when DRS detected the faintest of toe edges to Rishabh Pant behind the stumps, while Jasprit Bumrah (2-10) – back in the side along with Pant, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja of India’s Test-playing contingent – bowled Liam Livingstone (15) through the gate with a beautifully disguised slower ball.

Moeen Ali (35 off 21) and David Willey (33no off 22) struck some lusty blows towards the back end of the innings, but there was otherwise very little for the home side to shout about as they were bundled out in 17 overs.

Gleeson enjoys dream debut

Earlier, on what looked to be a belting batting track, Buttler opted to chase after winning the toss and India promptly made use of the conditions with Rohit Sharma (31 off 20) and Pant (26 off 15) putting on 49 for the first wicket inside five overs.

It was the introduction of Gleeson that ultimately broke the stand, with Rohit – who had been dropped on one by Roy at point – top-edging an attempted pull, Buttler claiming a terrific catch over his shoulder.

In his second over, Gleeson suddenly found himself on a hat-trick as he saw off key men Kohli (1) and Pant in consecutive deliveries, while the equally impressive Chris Jordan (4-27) also claimed two in two in the 11th over .

Suryakumar Yadav (15 off 11) and Hardik Pandya (12 off 15) were the unfortunate batters this time as India slipped to 89-5, with England – Gleeson and Jordan, in particular – repeatedly having success when bowling cross-seamers banged into the Edgbaston surface.

Buttler was slightly perplexed as he lost his wicket in Bhuvneshwar’s second over. Initially given not out, the England skipper was surprised to see UltraEdge detect a thin nick behind as India used one of their reviews.

Livingstone, untroubled by the early breakthroughs, was swiftly into his stride as he hit three boundaries in his first eight balls, only to then fall to his ninth when brilliantly deceived by a Bumrah slower ball.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (2-10) added the scalps of Harry Brook (8) and Dawid Malan (19), while Bumrah returned to claim Sam Curran (2) cheaply to see England six down for just 60 early in the 11th over .

Moeen cleared the boundary twice, also striking three fours, as the hosts briefly rallied, but then he fell to Hardik Pandya (1-29) – caught at mid-off – and Jordan went to a calamitous run-out next ball as England stumbled towards a heavy defeat.
