Share This Post

Yuzvendra Chahal was outstanding in the second One-Day International against England, taking the wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Moeen Ali. Bairstow was his first victim, and he bowled him out after he attempted a slog sweep.

Then he had Root and Stokes LBW. He also got Moeen Ali caught out at deep mid-wicket after he played a slog sweep trying to get a maximum. Because of Chahal’s outstanding performance, India has taken control of the second ODI. If India wins the second game of the series, they will lead the series 2-0.

India Won the Toss

Earlier, India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat against England in the second one-day international of a three-match series at Lord’s. Virat Kohli, India’s best batsman, has been added to the playing XI after missing the first ODI due to a groin injury.

During the coin toss, Rohit stated, “We’ll start by bowling. Although there is some grass, the pitch appears to be moist. We determined that a scoreboard was required due to the size of the field. Shreyas Iyer has been replaced by Virat Kohli. Regardless of the format, he is a capable bowler. Bowls at any time, adding a new dimension to the game.”

England captain Jos Buttler, on the other hand, stated, “We would have also bowled first. It was truly a 50/50 decision. If we can get through the initial wetness and potential difficulties, we should be fine. We will play with the same team today. I believe we must move on and accept the loss as one of life’s unfortunate events. We have always believed that our greatest strength is batting, and a single game will not change that. It’s always a joy to play at Lord’s. (The World Cup victory) was a memorable occasion.”
