India are currently the second-ranked team in the world and are presently playing an ODI series against Eoin Morgan’s England. Virat Kohli and his men have been resounding thus far and the hosts have had their travails against them. In the first match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, the Men in Blue won by eight wickets and took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The match was expected to be a high-scoring one, however, it didn’t pan out that way. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow piled on some useful runs, but Kuldeep Yadav wrecked havoc on the English batting lineup and restricted them from expressing themselves. In the run-chase, Rohit Sharma put on his 18th century to help India track down 269 with a mammoth 59 balls to spare.
Warner’s praises for England and India
The skipper also chipped in with a knock of 75 runs. In the second match at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, the Brits have a stern test to not only stay afloat in the series but also stay put in their top position on the ICC ODI rankings. Prior the 50-overs series, the teams also locked horns in a three-match T20I series. India won the first match at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
Alex Hales’ gutsy half-century helped the visitors make a comeback and draw level. Nevertheless, Rohit Sharma’s stupendous century in Bristol sealed the fate of the series. Meanwhile, David Warner, the Australian batsman, reckons that the series is going to be an exciting one. The two sides will also play the World Cup, which starts on May 30, next year and are touted to be the firm favourites.
Moreover, Warner expressed his excitement for the World Cup and wrote, “Fair to say @ECB_cricket have been the best side for a while but this will be a great series. @BCCI @imVkohli @ImRo45 in good touch. Gonna be one amazing World Cup next year in England”
