The Indian team has been all over England in the white ball format and has consistently troubled the hosts. India won the first ODI series opener by 10 wickets, and the match was completed in less than 50 overs across both innings. India is on a roll and will look to win this match and the ODI series in order to experiment in the third match.
England has already lost the T20I series and is on the verge of losing the ODI series as well. They must win this match in order to keep the series alive and advance the ODIs to the decider. If it loses this match, it will have lost both the ODI and T20 series, which will raise some eyebrows.
The 2nd ODI between England vs India will take place on July 14th, 2022 at the ‘Mecca of Cricket’, Lord’s in London.

England vs India Team Previews
Team England would have been devastated if it had lost the first game of the series, but it will not panic. The talent in the batting order is undeniable, but the circumstances appeared to be completely against it. Things aren’t going to get any easier when you get to Lord’s.
England’s batsmen have struggled against moving deliveries, and Lord’s always has something in it for the bowlers due to the slope, which causes seam movement on a regular basis. In addition, the pitch at Lord’s has become a little slow and spin-friendly, so the curator has begun to leave a bit of grass on the surface to keep the wicket moving.
With the English batsmen’s current form being a little shaky, we’re tempted to bet against a couple of them in this match as well. We believe that betting against Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow on the Over/Under markets is a good option.
Root, Stokes, and Buttler, on the other hand, could bat when the conditions improve and score runs. Root is fantastic against pace and extremely effective against spin. We expect Root and Buttler to score runs in this match as well.
England’s bowling attack appeared overly concerned with attempting the short ball against Rohit Sharma, and he punished them. They did not try to use the surface’s assistance as the Indian bowlers did, and it cost them.
Carse, Overton, Willey, Topley, and Stokes can all bowl at a fast pace. Willey, in particular, could cause some issues with his early swing.
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk/c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Craig Overton, David Willey, Brydon Carse, Reece Topley, Philip Salt, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Matthew Parkinson
Predicted XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Craig Overton, David Willey, Brydon Carse, Reece Topley
India is altering its approach to white ball cricket, and not just with the bat. There was a concerted effort to increase wickets during the powerplay, which has been the worst among the top countries for nearly three years.
Sure, the bowlers had better conditions to work with, but Bumrah and Shami were equally impressive in their skill execution. Will India change their lineup and give some other bowlers a chance? This could hurt the team’s chances, so bettors should pay close attention when the team is announced at the coin toss.
In the previous match, India’s batting was not stretched, but Rohit Sharma scored a fantastic 76 not out with five sixes! His approach was aggressive, and he promises a lot in the future. With the turnaround team being so short, Virat Kohli may not return for this match, but there is no way to know for sure.
Shikhar Dhawan appeared to be out of touch, but sometime in the middle will help him. We also know how well SKY and Pant play together. Shreyas Iyer’s performance will be the biggest unknown. We’re going to bet against him because we believe he’ll be distracted by the short ball and take a risky shot.
An Indian team at full strength is a force to be reckoned with. The team is well balanced and has many match winners with both bat and ball, with Pandya, Jadeja, Shami, and Bumrah all in the playing eleven. Yuzvendra Chahal and Prasidh Krishna can also make life difficult for English batsmen.
Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna, Virat Kohli, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Ishan Kishan, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
England vs India Toss Prediction
Both captains will bowl first if the conditions are overcast, as they were in the first match, and chasing is the best option because bowlers will get extra movement with the early moisture on the track.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Lord’s is one of England’s most iconic venues, and we expect the pitch to be well-balanced between bat and ball. In this match, we expect the score to be around 260-280 runs.
Bowlers will enjoy bowling in London if the clouds build up ahead of the match because the weather is cool and breezy with a slight overcast.
England vs India Match Prediction
With the new ball, the Indian bowling attack has dominated the England batsmen in the powerplay. England has a full-strength batting lineup, and India’s clinical victory over them in the first match will please them. England’s bowlers lack experience and will face a difficult task against India’s strong batting lineup in this match. We expect India to win this match due to their team’s overall strength and balance.
India is the favourite to beat England at the odds of 1.85.
- Indian pacers took all ten wickets in the first ODI, dismissing England for 110 runs.
- England’s eight-match winning streak in one-day internationals came to an end with their loss in the first game.
- England had never previously lost a home ODI match by ten wickets.
