New Delhi: Before the second ODI against India, the England team suffered two big setbacks. England captain Eoin Morgan will be unable to compete in the last two ODIs against India due to injury. Other than that, Sam Billings won’t be available in Friday’s Game 2 either. Whether or not Billings can play in the third ODI will be decided later.
Jose Butler will be captain
In Eoin Morgan’s absence, senior wicket batsman Jos Buttler will captain the England squad. While Liam Livingstone will replace Sam Billings. With this he will have the chance to debut in ODI. However, the England team will now miss their captain throughout the series. While in the middle order, billing also does a good job. In such a situation, the England team could be in trouble in the next game.
Morgan injured during the first ODI
Eoin Morgan was injured in the first game on Tuesday. Her thumb and closest finger ached and four stitches had to be put on. The England captain declared himself unfit on Thursday after practicing the pitch at MCA Stadium. While Sam Billings was also injured in the first game. He didn’t even participate in training on Thursday. David Malan has been included in the squad and will be available for selection.
India has a chance to win the series
India have a great chance of winning the series by beating England in the next match. India is already ahead 1-0 in this series. If India wins the next match, then the series will be in its name. Additionally, if Team India wins the next two matches, they will reach the top of the ODI Rankings.
