After a dominant performance in the first ODI at Trent Bridge on Thursday, India can take one more step toward the top of the International Cricket Council world rankings if they can hand England another loss in the second match of their three-game series. The match will live stream from the legendary Lords Cricket Ground on Saturday.
A win for India wraps up the series victory, as the Indian Express gleefully reported. That would give India two series victories, after their T20 series win to open their summer tour of England. But they would also need to win the final match and complete the whitewash to knock England out of the world No. 1 ranking and claim it for themselves.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the second one-day international match between England and India, with England needing to win to keep their hopes of a series victory alive, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First ball is scheduled for 11 a.m. British Summer Time on Saturday, July 14, at the legendary Lords Cricket Ground in London, England.
In India, that start time will be 3:30 p.m. India Standard Time, while in the United States, cricket fans can watch the match live stream at 6 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 3 a.m. Pacific.
Rohit Sharma led the way in the first ODI, posting a stellar 137 not out, per CricInfo as the Men in Blue rolled to a huge eight-wicket win with 59 balls left to play.
For England, Jos Buttler posted 53 and Ben Stokes an even 50 as the hosts were bowled out for 268 with a single ball remaining. Stokes took 102 deliveries to reach his 50, his slowest ODI 50 ever, and the second-slowest by an England player since 2001, CricInfo noted. The ODI loss snapped a five-match win streak for England, all of them against Australia as England blanked their rivals from Down Under in a five-match series in June.
Kuldeep Yadav, India’s 23-year-old, left-arm spin sensation, took a six wicket haul while allowing a mere 25 runs to score in the first ODI, according to a CricInfo report. With five more on Saturday, Kuldeep can become the second-fastest bowler to reach the 50-wicket mark, needing only 22 ODI matches to get there.
