Lords. Jos Buttler has not been able to perform much with the bat even in the ODI series after the T20 against Team India. The second ODI (IND vs ENG) between India and England is to be played at Lord’s today. In the first match, the host English team was defeated by 10 wickets. In such a situation, the team can make changes in the playing-11. In the first match, however, the English batsmen were completely unsuccessful and the team could only score 110 runs. After this, Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan did not let the team get any setback. Rohit was unbeaten with a half-century and in this way he has given signs of coming into form.
Talking about the first ODI, fast bowler Brydon Cars could not perform anything. He had conceded 38 runs in 3.4 overs. Looking at his overall ODI performance, he has taken 9 wickets in 6 matches. The best performance of the bowler for 31 years has been 5 wickets for 61 runs. Matthews Parkinson can be included in his place. Even after this 25-year-old fast bowler, however, there is not much experience. He has taken 5 wickets in 5 matches. He got a chance to play 2 T20 matches against India and he took one wicket.
Sam Curran may return
Young all-rounder Sam Curran may return in this match. He may get a chance in place of Craig Overton. Overton scored 8 runs in the first match and gave 34 runs in 4 overs. Karan’s performance against Team India has been good. He also bats down the order. However, the biggest problem of the English team is the top order batsmen, who have not been able to make an impact so far.
English team can go with this team
England (Probable Playing XI): Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Reece Topley, Matthew Parkinson, David Willey.
