Match: 2nd ODI
Time: 1:30 PM IST, March 26, 2021
Venue: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium
Confident Indian team will take on World Champion England in the second ODI here in Pune today. India will try to seize the series with an unassailable lead and on the other hand England will put their efforts to draw level in the series.
In this match there are one or two changes expected from both sides due to injuries. In the first ODI England got a strong start with the help of Bairstow’s destructive batting but after the dismissal of Jason Roy their middle order crumbled like a house of cards.
England would be regretting their first ODI defeat and will try to dig deep to overturn their fortunes. Along with middle order their bowling specialists will also have to show some impact to trouble Indian strong batting line up and restrict them from building high partnerships.
Toss & Pitch
We saw a good pitch in the previous match to bat on and good bounce for pace bowlers as well. Same kind of pitch is expected in today’s match. There is less to do for spinners with spin but variation in pace can trick the batsmen. The team that bat first would try to set a score around 350 as 300 runs are chasable on this surface.
The team, winning the toss would go for batting first despite dew factor in the second innings.
India Possible XI:
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
England Possible XI:
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler (c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, Mark Wood
