After a convincing victory over England in the first match of the series, India will be looking to seal an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the ongoing 3-match One Day International series against England in the 2nd ODI at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Friday.

India will be forced to make a change due to Shreyas Iyer’s injury and might look to change the spin option around too after yet another insipid performance from Kuldeep Yadav. Suryakumar Yadav is likely to get a chance to showcase his 360 degree hitting skills.

Shreyas Iyer’s dislocated shoulder has once again brought Yadav in focus and his ODI debut, after a blockbuster T20 first debut. Iyer has become one of the most prolific 50-over batsman in the last one year.

Kohli has neither Ravindra Jadeja nor Axar Patel for three months, however Krunal Pandya in the ODIs, have let the team miss their maverick from Rajkot. Prasidh Krishna looked completely sensational at home on his ODI debut, hurrying batsmen for pace in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.

The form of Shikhar Dhawan with a match-winning 98 runs was the biggest positive from opening game against England. He was under pressure after being benched for a large part of the T20 series. Rohit Sharma had sustained a blow to his elbow during the first match but is expected to be fit in time for the second game.

In case India want to give Rohit break, then Shubman Gill will be the option to open the inning with Dhawan and Rishabh Pant would play purely as a batsman. Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav leaked 68 runs in nine overs and could be replaced by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

The pace trio of experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Prasidh Krishana and the ever-improving Shardul Thakur took nine of the 10 wickets and would be keen to rock the England batting line-up again. Shardul has been continuously playing and it won’t be a bad option to try out T Natarajan or Mohammed Siraj for a bit of variation.

England, who has already lost the Test and T20I series, has several injury concerns like India and it remains to be seen how they bounce back in the crucial clash. England have a lot to ponder on and injuries to skipper Eoin Morgan and batsman Sam Billings during fielding in the first game. Both appear doubtful for the second game.

Johny Bairstow’s knock of 94 with his opening partner Jason Roy was fabulous. They two would be looking to another fine show. However, England’s middle order like all-rounder Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali hasn’t performed to its potential with the bat. England’s key spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali were wicket-less in the opening game. they were failed trouble Indian batsman while pace spearhead Mark Wood troubled the batters with his speed.

Rishabh Pant misses out 3rd T20I vs Australia, Rohit Sharma explains

Recently, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been under the scanner for his death bowling and facing criticism over his death bowling figures.

Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant on Sunday missed out the series decider T20I against Australia at Hyderabad’s Rajive Gandhi Stadium.

With the series levelled at 1-1, India made just one change in their playing XI replacing wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant with pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

During the toss, team India skipper Rohit Sharma explained why Pant had to sit out the series decider.

The team only needed four bowlers in the previous match, which was reduced to an 8-overs-per-side contest. As a result, Bhuvneshwar had to sit out the game, and Pant was included in the playing XI, Sharma, who won the toss and elected to bowl first against Australia in the third and final T20I at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket in Hyderabad, said in the pre-match conference.

It’s good to be back in Hyderabad and play in front of this crowd. India is looking to maintain the winning momentum, so it was a good win for India in Nagpur. Australia have always been challenging, they bring in a different kind of challenge, Sharma said at the toss.

Recently, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been under the scanner for his death bowling and facing criticism over his death bowling figures. The pacer conceded 49 runs in the first match and also failed to pick a wicket.

Bhuvi has been good with the new ball but his bowling at the death has not been like the new ball. After conceding a lot of runs at death in Asia Cup, the pacer conceded 16 in the penultimate over in the first T20I which ended India’s hopes.

India’s bowling was poor in the Asia Cup and things haven’t changed till the 3rd T20I against Australia, despite the team bringing Harshal Patel back.

Apart from Axar Patel, who picked 3 wickets for 17 runs, every other bowler was left bruised by the Australian batters.
