Ahmedabad: In the second ODI against India, Team India suffered a crushing 6-wicket defeat. When KL Rahul hit 108 points, Johnny Bairstow (124) and Ben Stokes (99) were knocked out. England won the second ODI and tied 1-1 in the three-game series. The decisive match of the ODI Series will now be played in Pune on Sunday.
Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya looted tracks
In this match, poor bowling became the reason for the loss of Team India. Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya looted the tracks. Krunal Pandya was the most expensive bowler. Krunal Pandya played 72 innings without bowling in 6 overs. Krunal Pandya’s save rate was 12. Outside of Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav looted 84 runs in 10 overs without any wickets. Kuldeep Yadav’s fielding was also poor and he also dropped the capture of Ben Stokes in the 34th. Ben Stokes was fortunate enough to score 81 when Kuldeep Yadav hit a single limit on Krunal Pandya. The grip that Kuldeep should have caught has been turned into a six.
Bairstow and Stokes ferociously plundered
Striking first, Team India scored 336 points and gave England a goal of 337 points to win in 50 overs. England won the game with 6.3 overs remaining. This can be measured by the mediocrity of the bowling standard of Indian bowlers. Johnny Bairstow and Ben Stokes relentlessly plundered Team India’s bowlers. Johnny Bairstow scored 124 of 111 balls and Ben Stokes scored 99 points on 52 balls. Bairstow hit 11 fours and seven sixes up his sleeves. Stokes missed a century, but his four fours and ten sixes were instrumental in reversing the game. Both shared a partnership of 175 races from 114 balls for the second wicket. After that, Liam Livingstone (27 not released) and David Malan (16 not released) led England to the target.
