India captain Rohit Sharma started off well in the second T20I against England at Edgbaston on Sunday. He looked to be great flow until he was dismissed on 31 off 20 balls. Before that, Sharma entertained the audience with two sixes and three fours. Then England debutant Richard Gleeson struck. Bowling his first over in international cricket, he delivered a short ball to Rohit, who went for the pull shot. The ball took a top-edge and wicketkeeper-captain Jos Buttler ran backwards to take a diving catch. It was Gleeson’s maiden international wicket.
