India has a 1-0 advantage in the three-match ODI series, and a victory in the second ODI will give Rohit Sharma’s team the series. Virat Kohli

The Indian cricket team, which is captained by Rohit Sharma, won the first One-Day International against England by a margin of 10 wickets. India dominated the Jos Buttler-led England in every aspect as Japsrit Bumrah claimed six wickets and Rohit struck an undefeated half-century. Virat Kohli was not a candidate for the match owing to a “groyne strain,” according to a tweet from the BCCI before the opening ODI. It’s also uncertain whether he’ll be available for the second ODI. It is unlikely that India would change the winning lineup from the first ODI if that occurs.

India’s predicted XI of the second ODI against England:

  1. India was able to reach a 111-run target in just 18.4 overs thanks in large part to the leadership of skipper Rohit Sharma, who smashed an unbeaten 76 off 58 balls. His strong performance is essential for India.
  2. Shikhar Dhawan: With an unbeaten 31 off 54 balls, he provided Rohit with excellent support. In the lone format where he is being considered for the Indian team, he would be eager to maintain his form.
  3. Shreyas Iyer: Virat Kohli’s replacement was announced to be him. He missed out on the chance to bat in the first ODI, but if Kohli does not recover, he will get another opportunity.
  1. Suryakumar Yadav: After scoring a hundred runs in the T20I series against England, he is in excellent condition. A keen eye will be kept on his performance leading up to the 2022 T20 World Cup.
  2. Rishabh Pant: He took three excellent catches in the first ODI and was outstanding behind the stumps. When he plays, it’s also fun to watch him bat.
  3. Hardik Pandya: He bowled four overs for 22 runs while going wicketless. He gives the team more harmony.
  4. Ravindra Jadeja was not given the opportunity to bowl or bat. The seasoned all-rounder is a vital part of the Indian ODI team’s strategy, though.
  1. Jasprit Bumrah: For his 6/19 performance in the first ODI, he was named “Player of the Match.” The bowling attack will be led by him.
  2. Mohammed Shami: Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Craig Overton were all dismissed by Shami with some superb deliveries. He is the ideal Bumrah ally.
  3. Prasidh Krishna is a bowler who specialises in hitting the deck. He occasionally provided England’s batters width, but he also bowled some excellent balls.
  4. Yuzvendra Chahal: With only two overs to bowl, he conceded 10 runs. He is the best Indian spinner in his present form.
