In the India tour of England 2022, the second ODI of the three-match bilateral series will be conducted on Thursday, July 14 at the Lord’s in London at 5:30 PM IST. India lead the series 1-0.
India bags yet another victory under Rohit Sharma‘s captaincy without breaking a sweat. The star Indian opener’s dream start to his captaincy stint continues as the visitors are just one game away from clinching the ODI series on English soil. The Indian team dominated throughout the previous game as the unit didn’t allow England to recover after facing Jasprit Bumrah‘s wrath in the initial overs of the game. The successful opening duo of Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan sealed the game with yet another 100-run partnership. The return of struggling Virat Kohli in the upcoming game will give the number three batsman a chance to regain his form. India will look forward to winning the game on Thursday and securing the ODI series, which they fell short of doing in the 2018 tour.
On the other hand, the hosts will head into the upcoming fixture with a do-or-die scenario. Jos Bulter is having a disastrous commencement as the full-time captain of England. The hosts have lost three out of four limited-overs games on the tour under Butler’s captaincy. The return of Ben Stokes and Joe Root to the 50-over format didn’t add much as the two veterans of English cricket didn’t make any changes on the scoreboard with the bat before returning to the pavilion. The home team will have to pull out a new trick to win the Thursday fixture and stay alive in the series.
India have the upper hand in the head-to-head competition between the two teams. The two sides collided on 104 occasions, India came out on top on 56 instances while England won 43 games.
In the last outing between the two teams, which took place on Tuesday, the tourists thrashed the hosts in a 10-wicket victory.
