London. Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal led India to equalize England in 246 races in the second ODI on Thursday. Chahal took four wickets for 47 runs. Hardik Pandya (2 for 28) and Jasprit Bumrah (2 for 49) also supported him well and took two wickets each. No striker from England could convert a good start into a big game and the whole team returned to the pavilion in 49 overs. With a half-century partnership between Moeen Ali and David Willey, the team scored a respectable score while overcoming the strange conditions. Moeen scored 47 runs, while Willie utilized two lives and scored 41 runs. Both shared a 62-run partnership over the seventh wicket. Moeen also added 46 runs to the sixth wicket with Liam Livingstone (33). Opener Jonny Bairstow also scored 38 runs.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the draw and decided to bowl first. Bairstow and Jason Roy (23) met the new ball pair Bumrah and Mohammed Shami (1 for 48), who took nine wickets in the first ODI to bring England to 110. Roy hit the first four innings on Shami and then hit fours and sixes in this fast bowlers over. Roy was lucky to score 23 runs in the eighth over when Bumrah dropped his catch on his own delivery. Roy, however, could not take advantage of the lifeline, and Pandya’s poor delivery was played directly into the hands of Suryakumar Yadav at deep backward square legs.
After Roy’s dismissal, Bairstow took the lead. After hitting a four on Chahal, he also hit two fours on the famous Krishna. Bairstow, however, were thrown in the 15th over of the inning in an attempt to play a stroke sweep from Chahal. He hit six fours in 38 balls. Chahal took Joe Root (11) legs earlier in his next over while Shami bowled Jos Buttler (04) to make England 87 for four. England test captain Ben Stokes (21) struck two fours at Chahal but missed a straight delivery from the same leg-spinner and walked one leg before. Liam Livingstone (33) hit the first six of the laps long outside Chahal.
England’s century of racing ended in the 21st century. Livingstone hit sixes and fours in successive deliveries from Pandya, but the next ball from the same fast bowler was played on deep square play in the hands of substitute Shreya Iyer. He met 33 balls and hit two sixes and two fours. Moeen and Willie then took over the rounds. Willie was lucky with a personal score on a race when Krishna dropped his catch from Pandya’s delivery. Both Moeen and Willie hit six sixes on Krishna.

Pandya gave Willie a second life with 24 runs, and this time the unlucky bowler was Shami. In this 40th over of Shami’s innings, England’s double century of runs was also completed. Moeen hit his second six from Bumrah, but Chahal returned to bowling and got him caught by Jadeja, ending his 62-run partnership with Willie. Moeen faced 64 balls and hit two sixes and two fours. Willie hit a six on Bumrah, but was caught by Iyer in the same over. He hit two fours and two sixes in his 49-balls. Bumrah finished England’s innings by bowling Reece Topley (03).
