Still long way to go in ODI series and if anyone start to feel that England is no contest, then don’t be and wait for at least another couple of matches. England is a decent team with best all rounders in business and they will not let it (series) so easily. Both the teams have fitness concerns from beginning of the series and England has got some good news with Sidebottom available for selection while India may miss Yuvraj in this match who suffered back strain during 1st match. Ishant will miss this game also and no news about his recovery.
Not sure how many would like one sided matches like previous one and definitely I’m not the one who prefers one sided matches but that’s okay once in a while, when you can watch an awesome innings like Yuvi’s century.
Toss: Mahendra Singh Dhoni has won the toss and India will
bat. India are unchanged, which means Yuvraj Singh is fit. England are unchanged as well.
