3.6 overs (0 Run)
Topley gets extra bounce once again. It is on the pads, Kohli looks to flick but misses and gets hit on the thigh pad. End of a very good over from Topley. Just a couple from it and more importantly a big wicket of Shikhar Dhawan.
Skipper, Virat Kohli walks out at number 3!
3.5 overs (0 Run)
OUT! CAUGHT! Reece Topley’s patient, questioning line and length has paid rewards. The Man of the Match from the last game does not last long and England have got the breakthrough early in the first Powerplay. Topley after hitting the length decides to go full around off. This one shapes away from the southpaw as well. Dhawan, who had been so patient so far finally falls in the honeytrap. He looks to go for the flashy drive but the outswinger sees the ball catch the outside edge of Gabbar’s willow. It goes to the right of second slip. Ben Stokes there is safe as a house. He takes a good sharp catch.
3.5 overs (1 Run)
WIDE! Too far outside off! Good length ball pitching outside off, it pitches close to the tramline and shapes away. Dhawan leaves it alone. Wided by the umpire.
3.4 overs (0 Run)
This is good bowling. Patient bowling! Continues to tempt Dhawan to go for the punch or drive outside off. Dhawan leaves it alone.
3.3 overs (0 Run)
Outside off and shaping away. Dhawan leaves it alone.
Stokes has been warned! The umpire has had a word with Buttler as Stokes has applied saliva on the ball and due to the Covid-19 protocols that is forbidden.
3.2 overs (0 Run)
Slash and a miss! Length ball outside off, it moves away off the deck. Topley also gets a fraction extra bounce due to his height. Dhawan looks to cut but misses.

Slightly short of a length delivery around the body. Rohit pulls it to the left of deep square leg for one.

2.5 overs (0 Run)
A solid block now. Length ball on middle with a hint of swing. Dhawan leans forward and defends it.
2.4 overs (0 Run)
Shorter one from Sam! It is on middle, Dhawan hops and tucks it to the leg side of the pitch.

Good amount of swing for Topley first up! He starts with a good length ball pitching outside off and shaping away from the southpaw. Dhawan leaves it alone.
Who will take the other new ball? It will be Reece Topley!
0.6 over (3 Runs)
Dhawan is off the mark! Good fielding from Malan! Saves a run for his side. Fullish delivery on off, Dhawan leans forward and just pushes it through extra covers. Malan gives the ball a chase. It is a very good outfield but Malan manages to put a dive and pull it back before the ropes.
0.5 over (0 Run)
Another one outside off. Tempting Dhawan to have a poke at it but the Indian opener refuses to play that.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says, that they wanted to bat first. Tells conditions play a big part and the outfield is fast. Tells they knew they were in the game though England got off to a flying start. Kohli says that if one has to perform anywhere against your wishes then one has to be ready to do what they are told. Hopes they can do much better in the middle overs. Kohli says that against a top-quality side one has to be prepared and execute well. Kohli says they wanted to attack at all times and what they did. Informs Shreyas Iyer is out due to a shoulder injury. Adds Rishabh Pant replaces him and that is the only change.
England skipper, Jos Buttler, feels that the pitch will be similar like the first ODI. He further says that they are going to play their own brand of cricket the way they have played. He also says that Morgan has been a good leader and he is happy to lead the side in his absence as he has learned from him but tells he will be a big miss both as a batsman and a leader. Hopes that they look to give a complete performance today. Mentions that they are surely going to miss Morgan as a batsman and as a leader. Buttler informs that there are three changes in the side as Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone and Reece Topley come into the side in place of Billings, Morgan, and Mark Wood.
TOSS – Time for the flip of coin. Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is out in the middle alongside England captain, Jos Buttler. Kohli has the coin in hand. Up it goes, Buttler calls Heads and it comes down as Heads. ENGLAND OPT TO BOWL!
PITCH REPORT – How will the pitch be like for this crucial game? Deep Dasgupta and Ajit Agarkar are the pitch analysts for the day. Deep Dasgupta says that the pitch for the first game was a belter. Agarkar says he would rather be a batter than a bowler on this pitch. Tells it looks better than the first ODI. Adds there is some grass and it is firm. Tells there will be something for the pacers. Dasgupta says the firmness of the pitch might be one of the reasons they did not bowl as many slower ones as in Ahmedabad. Dasgupta adds that the pitch looks flatter than the previous game.
DEBUT! Liam Livingstone has been handed his cap and he looks set to make his ODI debut today!
