India pulled it off. After trailing for most part of the match, India managed to win the second T20 international against England by 5 runs even after just making 144 in their innings.

Ben Stokes and Joe Root took England to the target before Nehra dismissed the former with England needing 26 off 18 balls. Nehra gave away 16 runs off the penultimate over and Bumrah had to defend 8 off the final over. England had six wickets in hand but Bumrah dismissed Root on the first ball and Buttler off the fourth and then defended 6 off the final ball to bowl India to series levelling win in Nagpur
