India will play England in the second of the three-match ODI series. After being thrashed by the English openers until the 14th, India made a stunning comeback to bowl the Three Lions out in 43 overs and win by 66 runs. Krunal Pandya’s inclusion in the squad provides the team with a perfect balance and an extra bowling choice for skipper Virat Kohli. Due to a dislocated shoulder, Shreyas Iyer will miss the rest of the series, while Rohit Sharma is doubtful for the second ODI. Shubman Gill, Surya Kumar Yadav, and Rishabh Pant are contending for these positions.
On the other hand, England would be devastated if they lose the first ODI after such a strong start from their openers. The fall of the middle-order cost them in the first game of the series. In this ODI, England will need to revamp their batting order, but the form of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, who are currently one of the most effective batting pairs in the ODI format, will give them faith. The availability of Eoin Morgan and Sam Billings for the second ODI is still unknown.
The temperature will be about 37°C at the start of the game but will drop to 30°C at the end. There is just a slight possibility of rain.
The pitch is suitable for batting, as seen in the previous game, with 300 being the bare minimum at the venue. While the pacers got the ball moving early on, they’ll try to target the batsmen with back-of-a-length deliveries, which worked well in the previous ODI. Although there isn’t much turn on offer for the spinners, pace changes might be enough to help them succeed. Given the fact that dew is likely to play a role in the second innings, batting first is the best choice upon winning the toss.

England will be scratching themselves after letting India get away with the bat in the latter stages of their innings before folding after a good start. England may need a solid mental effort to reclaim the series lead, but they are world champions, so we shouldn’t write them off just yet. On the other hand, India is beginning to look like a team that can win from any place in any format, and we expect them to take a 2-0 lead on this match. Let’s bet with baji.live now and win BIG!
