India vs England, 2nd ODI Match Preview:
Indian batting put on a show in the 1st ODI. The openers did their job well giving a steady start to the team. Shikhar Dhawan found form with his knock of 98. He would surely be looking to add those two more runs and reach the three-figure mark. Virat Kohli played a quality knock once again.
With Shreyas Iyer not available for the next game, Suryakumar Yadav might make his debut in place of him. Going by his current form, Yadav could play a game-changing inning. Krunal Pandya played a brilliant knock to give a top finish to the innings along with KL Rahul who also got back his rhythm.
Prasidh Krishna impressed everyone on his debut and ended the match with the best figures by a debutant for India. Shardul Thakur has been in great touch and will be the X-factor for the team in bowling match winnings spells. Yuzvendra Chahal might come back into the XI after a poor outing by Kuldeep Yadav.
English openers are a class above the rest in recent times. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy were looking set to chase down the 318 run total in the last match as they smashed 135 runs in just 14 overs. The middle-order collapse couldn't do justice to their openers' mighty start.
Ben Stokes hasn't won England a match in this despite several good performances. Friday could be his day to finally turnup and win the game single-handedly for his team.
India dominated England in the first game and is looking confident to win the ODI series in the second itself. However, the visitors are the top-ranked team in this format and know how to win crucial games. The match could go down to the wire.
