Indian team has started the England tour on a good note. They defeated the hosts in the first T20I at Old Trafford by 8 wickets.
Virat Kohli and co are set to play the second T20I at Cardiff. While India will look to take an unassailable lead in the series, England is desperate to make a comeback.
England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler is confident to fightback in the second T20I. He was the top scorer for the English team in the first encounter. "It's one game. It's T20. We are confident. We will stick to what has served us well, stay true to ourselves and come back hard at them in the next game." Buttler, who had scored 69 off 46 balls in the 1st T20I, was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com.
