|Team India is Ready for the next Battle against England at Cuttack|
India VS England second ODI, Cuttack: While visitors are planning to level the series 1-1 in the second ODI, Virat & Co looks confidant enough to show their ruthless streak. Chasing the target – no matter how big – is like a walk in the park for team India. India is now the only team in the world to have knocked off 350-plus thrice, and no wonder Kohli has been the backbone with his magical century one after the other in each one of those chases. So, chase is not going to be a threat to India’s win in the second ODI. However, what all can halt their winning streak is their bowling on the batting-friendly track of Cuttack.

The hosts are 1-0 up in the series, but then they need a bit more improvement as their first win was the result of sensational betting effort from the fifth-wicket pairing of Kohli and Kedar Jadhav. India’s top-order batsmen, who look no less precious than the real gems on paper, came out to be good for nothing in the opener at Pune. Everyone barring Kohli and Jadhav succumbed to the growing pressure of the chase.

Shikhar Dhawan, who had the responsibility to give India a head start, looked rusty. KL Rahul, the man to set up new criterions on how to open the batting with a rather rapid pace could add just 8 to India’s incredible chase. Comeback man Yuvraj Singh was looking fluent, but couldn’t capitalize on the good start he got. MS Dhoni too buckled under the growing pressure of the mammoth target. However, one notable thing that most of you must concede is the top-order wickets came out of poor shots rather than good deliveries. So, Indian batsmen need to be a bit more careful, thoughtful and mindful in the second battle against England.

Albeit England Cricket Team got a good start to their defense with four early strikes, their inability to pick wickets at crucial moments came as a serious drawback. Potentially, the conditions will be a lot different in Cuttack where India VS England second ODI is scheduled to be played. And if England doesn’t find a way out here as well, the going will get tougher and the series will be over for them. The batting is again likely to be center staged, as showcased in Pune where the visitors managed to score 350 without even giving their clinical best. On a batting-friendly track in Cuttack, runs must rain from both sides, but how the bowlers put a bold face on the batsmen would be the key factor.
