ENG vs IND, 2nd ODI Preview: Will Virat Kohli’s gang seal the deal at The Lord’s?

After clinching T20 series against Ireland and England, Virat Kohli-led team India eyes to seal the deal in the ODI series against the host when they will enter the home of cricket on Saturday.

While team England is trying to figure out the solution to Kuldeep Yadav bowling, team India is enjoying the tour with some of the great batting and bowling performances.

Captain Eoin Morgan admits England must improve or risk getting exposed when they face Kuldeep Yadav again after India demolished England at Trent Bridge.

In the first ODI of the three match series, Rohit Sharma classy 137 not out and Kuldeep Yadav’s 6-25 helped team India to spoil host’s party at the Cardiff.

After the match Eoin Morgan said, "Lord's will be very similar to Cardiff, so the shift from ground to ground will be important, but that doesn't paper over the fact we need to get better at playing him’’.

Match Predictions -   Just like Cardiff, the pitch at the Lord’s is also not expected to turn much but you cannot ignore the talent and skill of Indian leg spinner. However, team England will enter the home of cricket with confidence despite losing the first game.

Looking at the squad on both the sides, team India has a little edge over Eoin Morgan-led England in both batting and bowling line-up respectively.
