Indian Cricket team skipper Virat Kohli showed his funny nature during the toss time ahead of the second One-Day International at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
Meanwhile, England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat first. They are coming from a humiliating defeat in the first outing losing by eight wickets at Trent Bridge.
Morgan and his company will look to tackle Kuldeep Yadav and post a hefty score to defend it. As a result, they got off to a good start like the last game. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow used the pace to smash the ball all around the park.
However, it was Kuldeep Yadav once again who draw the first blood. He foxed Bairstow to castle his stumps as England lost their first wicket at the score of 69.
Soon after he removed Roy to reduce the hosts at 86 for two. Since then Eoin Morgan and Joe Root looked comfortable as they tried to build a decent partnership.
We are good at chasing:
Virat Kohli, during the toss time, was happy after the hosts opted to bat first as he felt the pitch will not change in the second innings.
He was keen to chase the total and wittily said that the toss wasn’t needed.
“If I’d have spoken to Morgs, we wouldn’t have needed a toss – we wanted to bowl first anyway. It looks like a good pitch so I don’t see it changing throughout the game,” he said while speaking to Isa Guha.
India is playing an unchanged side from the first game in an attempt to wrap up the series.
