Indian captain Virat Kohli yet again missed the opportunity to score an international hundred as he was dismissed for 66 runs in the IND vs ENG 2nd ODI in Pune. However, KL Rahul did smash a remarkable hundred while Rishabh Pant played a terrific innings of 77 runs off 40 balls as India posted a massive 336 for 6 in their 50 overs. India have already taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series against England.
The England opening duo of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow continued with their explosive batting just from where they left in the first India vs England ODI match. During the 6th over of the chase, Virat Kohli was seen throwing the ball back to Prasidh Krishna while the bowler was going for his run-up. But the ball accidentally hit the pacer on the arm while he was turned the other way round.
The second of the three ODI between two heavyweight teams in India and England is currently live on the Star Sports Network and live streaming can also be viewed on HotStar.
