An upbeat team India will aim to wrap up the ODI series when they take on England for the second one-day international at the Lord’s on Saturday.



An upbeat team India will aim to wrap up the ODI series when they take on England for the second one-day international at the Lord’s on Saturday. India looks like a side without any chink in its armour and after winning the first match of the series in an emphatic fashion skipper Virat Kohli and his men will look to continue their momentum. For the Three  Lions, the imminent threat of wrist spinners will continue to worry their batsmen as they have seemed clueless, especially against chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. However, to keep the series alive England are facing a race against time. With favourable conditions and an afternoon start, the balance is firmly tilted in favour of the visitors.

Alex Hales’ exit from the ODI side due to a side injury is a massive blow for England, considering he is one of the better players of spin in the English line-up. The form of Joe Root is another cause of worry. But if the hosts are to make a meal out of the match, skipper Eoin Morgan will be hoping that the curators leave some amount of grass on the wicket so that their bowlers can make an impact. Because unless their fast bowlers take wickets, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali cannot make an impact. Morgan must instill confidence and self-belief in his side and a change in approach will do a world of good for England.
