IND vs ENG 2nd ODI: India can take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match One Day International (ODI) series against England when they play the 2nd ODI match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday (IST).
The Indian team was glaring at the defeat when England scampered to 134-0 in just 14 overs. English openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow ripped the Mickey out of India’s bowlers. Hope was a little precious thing at that stage.
But as the English openers continued to play too many rash shots, India found the light amidst the darkness. Roy was first to depart and all the English batsmen soon followed the course.
It was both a joy and a head-scratching event unfolding in front of Indian cricket fans. England’s fall was hard to explain. But that’s the beauty of ODI cricket. No team can be counted out at any point.
England are expected to come hard at India as they look to salvage the series.

India vs England 2nd ODI match will start at 01:30 PM (IST, local time), on Friday at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.
KL Rahul backed his selection with a 50, while Shikhar Dhawan (98 runs off 106 balls) showed that he remains a premium option for India at the top.
But Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna hogged the biggest limelight in the end. The duo made their ODI debuts and managed to carve their name in the history books.
Pandya clocked the fasted 50 for a debutant amongst all the cricket nations, while Krishna, with his 4-54 figures, became the best Indian bowler on his debut. Quite remarkable.
The way IND vs ENG 1st ODI unfolded in front of our eyes, England have quite a few issues that need to be resolved. In these conditions, as in Pune, a captain can scroll through his options, and hop from pacers to spinners, with a deadly combination. Virat Kohli and Co. have plenty of variations and we think the Indian team will once again come out on top here.
