Michael Vaughan is expecting India to win the second T20 with some ease against an under-strength England side, and has a word of warning against the trend of resting big players for important series
"It's impossible to look beyond India even at short odds of [1.57]. They are simply too strong for this inexperienced England side."
India, as expected, won the first T20 fairly comfortably in the end, although it wasn't the worst performance in the England.
It's always hard, coming off the back of what was a monumental effort in the Test series, to raise yourself for a short one-day series and facing India is daunting enough in itself.
While England played well in patches, the consistency wasn't there; you have to expect that with a young side.
It's a bit worrying that big players are being rested from these important series' - you can understand managing workloads, but administrators need to be careful. I was amazed at how small the crowd was for the first game - that's not a trend the game needs to encourage.
Looking at the second T20, and it's impossible to look beyond India even at short odds of [1.57]. They are simply too strong for this inexperienced England side.
