MS Dhoni booed at Lord's after batting go-slow in big England win

Sports       by Sarfraz Ali | Published

After registering 8 wicket win at Trent Bridge, India were favorites to clinch the series at Lords, but the outcome of the match was completely different as the men in blue chasing a stiff target of 323-run failed to get going handing England a series-leveling 86-run win in the second ODI at Lord's on Saturday.

Willey bowled his full 10 at headquarters, though - removing Shikhar Dhawan as the India opener threatened to go on and get a big score and then completing an 86-run victory for England by having last man Yuzvendra Chahal caught at long-on to finish with figures of 2-48 on a swing-less day.

His innings, allied to fifties from captain Eoin Morgan (53) and David Willey (50 not out) helped England post a total of 322 for seven. India had thrashed England by eight wickets in the series opener. It was a good wicket, which got slower. "Fortunately that happened today".

"It was a bad day for all of us, not just him".

"His batting has progressed this summer and it had an effect on his bowling, which I thought was outstanding", said Morgan on his all-rounder, who also returned 2/48. Joe Root set things up, David Willey also played a crucial knock at the end. "It was an all-round performance". Although there was some kind of revival from current skipper Virat Kohli, once his wicket fell, it was all but over for the visitors.

Rohit Sharma (15) and Shikhar Dhawan (36) shared 49 runs for the opening stand before both perished in successive overs to put India on the back foot. From there on, it was a hard task for the rest of batsmen and veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni (37) too struggled to rotate the strike scoring his runs off 59 balls.

Soon Adil Rashid bowled Raina, who top scored for India with 46 runs.

Kohli s patient 45, featuring just two fours, ended when he played across the line to a Moeen Ali off-break that kept low and was plumb lbw.

And when Buttler, diving well down the legside, caught the big-hitting Hardik Pandya (21) off Plunkett, India were deep in trouble at 191 for six with 11 overs left.

With India's situation increasingly desperate, M.S. Dhoni (37) holed out off Plunkett before Yuzvendra Chahal was out off the last ball of India's 50 overs.

Root, who have had so far a cold season in the recently held T-20 series and the first ODI against India, looked extremely comfortable, scoring shots all over the ground.

"Those three wickets early on played a massive part".

Kuldeep had taken two for nine in 12 balls and England were now 86 for two.

The hosts have now levelled the three-match series at 1-1.

Yet, manipulation of strike, being busy and looking to score off Kuldeep and not just survive worked out well for Root in the capital.
