England and India clashed with each other in the 2nd ODI of the three-match series at the Lord's in London on 14th July, Thursday. Talking about the game, Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited the hosts to bat.
Despite getting a decent start from the openers, England managed to score only 246 runs on the board. Moeen Ali and David Willey have done well with the bat by coming down the order and scoring crucial 47 and 41 runs for their side.
Chasing the target, India has been bowled out by the opposition for 146 runs, as England won the match by a margin of 100 runs. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja top scored for the side, scoring 29 runs each to their name.
However, with this win, England levelled the series by 1-1 and both sides will look to seal the series in the upcoming game at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.
Thought the pitch will get better and better: Rohit Sharma
After losing the match against England, Rohit Sharma reckoned his errors in the post-match presentation and also claimed that they didn't bat well in this fixture. "We bowled pretty well to start with. They had the partnership in the middle with Moeen and Willey.
By no means that target wasn't chaseable but we didn't bat well. Have to take catches, something we've been talking a lot. All in all, we bowled pretty well," Rohit Sharma was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"Took me by surprise (the pitch). Thought the pitch will get better and better. Playing against a team like that, you need to get your five best bowlers and allrounder. Leaves a long tail.
So have to ensure as a top-order, one of the guys bats long. Going to be an exciting one (in Manchester). Have to look at what we need to do better. Have to look at the conditions there and adapt," he added.
However, during the game, Liam Livingstone tried to smash three consecutive boundaries off Hardik Pandya and handed a simple catch to Shreyas Iyer who was standing in the deep.
