Hales guides England to narrow win and level series

Cardiff: Alex Hales led England to a dramatic final-over victory in the second Twenty20 international against India at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Friday.

Chasing 149, England slipped to 44-3 but Hales led a recovery that left them needing 12 from the final over.

He took Bhuvneshwar Kumar for six, then four, with David Willey hitting the winning runs to level the series and set up a decider in Bristol on Sunday.

The home bowlers earlier adapted well to the dimensions of the Cardiff ground to restrict the tourists to 148-5.

Brief scores:
England 149 for 5 (Hales 58*, Bairstow 28, Umesh 2-36) beat India 148 for 5 (Kohli 47, Dhoni 32*) by five wickets
