English all-rounder Sam Curran and Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya were involved in a fight as India took on England in the second ODI of the three-match series. Notably, Hardik’s brother, Krunal and Sam Curran’s brother, Tom Curran were involved in a similar incident in the last game between the two teams.
After losing the toss once again, Virat Kohli and team India were invited to bat first by the visitors. Both the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma could not go big in this game and were dismissed cheaply. However, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli provided stability to the Indian innings to stitch together a century partnership.
Watch: Hardik Pandya And Sam Curran Involved In A Verbal Battle

However, KL Rahul made full use of the opportunity and converted his last game’s form to score his 5th ODI century. Rishabh Pant also came up with a scintillating knock as he scored 77 runs off 40 balls.
However, an interesting incident occurred between Hardik Pandya and Sam Curran in the 46th over of the game. Hardik Pandya and Sam Curran were involved in a verbal battle with each other after the latter had yorked Hardik on the last delivery of the over.

Team India Cruise To A Giant Total As KL Rahul And Rishabh Pant Wreck Havoc
KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant came up with scintillating knocks to help India reach a giant total. KL Rahul scored 108 runs and Pant, on the other hand, scored a quickfire 77 off just 40 balls. Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya took to the crease and made sure that they helped the Men in Blue reach a giant total. Hardik was dismissed in the last over.
Team India finished on 336 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 50 overs. The England Cricket Team will now have to chase the total to remain in contention of winning the series. If Team India beat them in the second game, they will win the series.
