The 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. 

Eoin Morgan had split his webbing and got four stitches during the 1st game while Sam Billings hurt his collar bone. There is a good chance of Morgan getting fit to play but Billings injury is looking a major one. Liam Livingstone is likely to play in the 2nd game and most likely replace Billings. 


Ben Stokes hasn't won England a match in this despite several good performances. Friday could be his day to finally turn up and win the game single-handedly for his team. If the pitch is once again assisting the seamers as it had in the last game, then Mark Wood could turn out to be the bowler to look forward to. 

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. 

India Probable Playing XI - Rohit Sharma/ Shubman Gill, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav/ Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna

England Probable Playing XI - Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Sam Billings/ Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
