England have defeated India in the second ODI by a margin of 86 runs to level the series. ‘There comes from the equalizer from England’ – to put England’s victory in football terms. Now the winner of the third and final ODI will win the ODI series in England.
Let us look at some of the statistical highlights from the second ODI between England and India at Lord’s:
113 – Number of runs scored by Joe Root in this ODI, his maiden ODI hundred at Lord’s. Overall, this is his 12th hundred in this format. Joe Root has before scored two half-centuries at this venue in his five ODIs.
30 – Number of deliveries in which England pacer David Willey completed his fifty at Lord’s. This is the fastest fifty for an England player in ODIs against India. Also, this is Willey’s maiden half century in this format. His previous best score was an unbeaten 35* against Australia which he scored last month.
10004 – Indian wicket keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni completed 10K runs in ODI format. He becomes the fourth player from India and 12th player overall to score over 10K runs in this format. Sachin Tendulkar (18426 runs), Sourav Ganguly (11363) and Rahul Dravid (10889) are the other three Indians to make this feat thus far.
50 – The second ODI between India and England at Lord’s is the 50th ODI match for Jonny Bairstow. At the end of 50 ODIs, he has scored 1932 runs at an average of 50.84, which includes 6 centuries and 7 half-centuries.
300 – Number of catches taken by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in ODIs. He is the fourth player after Adam Gilchrist (417 catches), Mark Boucher (403) and Kumar Sangakkara (402) to take 300 or more catches in this format.
6.80 – Kuldeep Yadav’s economy rate (bowled 10 overs) in the second ODI against England. This is the fourth time he conceded over 6 runs per over in an ODI where he bowled at least 5 overs. With the success he had in the recent past, Kuldeep conceding over 6 runs per over is a bit surprising.
4/46 – Liam Plunkett’s bowling figures in the Lord’s ODI. These are his third best bowling figures in this format. This is his fifth four-wicket haul in this format in addition to a five-wicket haul.
893 – Total partnership runs for the first wicket between Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in England. There are the most runs scored by a pair for the first wicket partnership in England. Alex Hales and Jason Roy scored 879 runs which is the second best in the list.
