Cuttack: India and England travel to Cuttack for the second of the three one-day internationals in the series.
This will be a big game for both teams as a win for India will give them an unassailable 2-0 series lead while a win for England will tie it 1-1 and give them a chance to fight in third ODI. But by the form of the Indian team, it looks unlikely that India will give England a chance.
India chased a record total to win the first ODI in Pune. First, it was England’s highest ever score in India: 350/7. India chased it down with 11 balls to spare. This was also the fourth highest ever chase in ODIs. But this was only possible after hundreds each from Virat Kohli and Kedar Jadhav who also shared a 200-run stand for the fifth wicket. India were once 63 for the loss of 4 wickets. Then the Kohli-Jadhav stand happened.
Both England and India have made a change to their playing XI from Pune. India replace Umesh Yadav with Bhuvneshwar Kumar while England bring in Liam Plunkett to replace Adil Rashid
Playing XI For England
