Reece Topley got 6 for 24, his best figures in ODI cricket, featured with the ball as England crushed India by 100 runs in the second ODI at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. With this success, England evened out the three-match series 1-1 in front of the last game in Manchester on Sunday.
Subsequent to being placed in, England were themselves all out for 246 of every 49 overs, with Yuzvendra Chahal getting 4 for 47. In any event, getting to the extent that that was just potential because of a 62-run seventh-wicket stand between Moeen Ali and David Willey.
It seemed to be a harmless all out at the innings break yet India were in for a shock.
Topley and Willey tracked down the development and additional skip to decrease India to 31 for 4 in the twelfth over. The recuperation never truly came, and their long tail – Mohammed Shami emerged at No. 8 – didn’t help their cause either. Eventually, they were bundled out for 146 in 38.5 overs.
Pursuing a total of 247, India were bowled out for a pitiful of 146 in 38.5 overs. Topley got back with figures of six for 24, the best by an England bowler at Lord’s. Prior, Yuzvendra Chahal featured with the ball as India bowled out England for 246 in the on going ODI at the Lord’s Cricket Stadium in London. Subsequent to being placed into bat, England started off very strong with openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow.
Hardik Pandya gave India the main forward leap as he dismissed Roy. Bairstow was then excused by Chahal, who likewise got the better of Joe Root and Ben Stokes. Mohammed Shami fortified Jos Buttler to hold under the syphon, yet Moeen Ali and David Willey’s thump of 47 and 41 assisted England with setting a difficult all out on the board. Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah likewise finished their spells with two wickets each while Prasidh Krishna also figured out how to take a wicket.
Career best figures for Topley, who joined with Willey to set the vibe for a quiet beginning by India.
Prior to the day, Jasprit Bumrah and Shami bowled a testing spell with the new ball, utilising the early dampness in the surface to inconvenience Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow.
Jason Roy looked the more provisional of the two England openers, getting beaten reliably on both inside and outside edge. Be that as it may, assuming the karma was with the Indian bowlers in the first ODI, where free drives brought endlessly edges found defenders, England were the lucky side on Thursday.
Subsequent to beating the outside edge of the two openers on various occasions, Shami tracked down within edge of Roy’s bat in the fifth over. But, the ball missed the stumps and went for four. In Shami’s next over, Bairstow tossed his bat at a length ball, got an outside edge, and got four through the equally emptied second slip region.
In the initial ten overs, the England batters played 22 misleading shots, same as they did in that period in the first ODI. At The Oval those brought about five wickets; here they brought India only one wicket.
That one wicket was of Roy, who figured out how to get by against Bumrah and Shami yet tumbled to a half-volley from Hardik Pandya. He endeavoured a flick yet the bat turned in his grasp, bringing about a basic opportunity at a deep-backward square leg.
Jonny Bairstow, however, had begun looking risky and had moved to 38 off 37 balls when he went for a trudge clear against Chahal, just to miss it totally with the ball clacking into the leg stump.

Before long, Chahal heaved one to Joe Root who excessively neglected to interface the scope and was caught lbw. In the following over, Shami fortified Jos Buttler with a full conveyance to make it 87 for 4.
Ben Stokes attempted to take on Chahal, hitting four opposite clears in succession, two of them getting him fours. Nonetheless, it was the very shot against the very bowler that brought about his excusal, lbw for 21.
Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik had recently begun the rebuilding process when Topley struck once more, with Suryakumar hacking one onto his stumps. Hardik and Ravindra Jadeja took the side beyond 100 preceding Hardik top-edged a draw against Moeen to deep midwicket.
Jadeja and Shami added 39 for the seventh wicket yet that only delayed the unavoidable. Towards the end, Topley bowled Chahal for his maiden five-wicket pull and wrapped up the game three balls later.
