The hosts were all-out for only 110 runs, which the Indian openers — Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan comfortably chased down in 18.4 overs. The first match didn’t go as planned for the English team. They will surely try to make a strong statement in the ENG vs IND 2nd ODI 2022 at Lord’s. England have a quality bowling attack to defend a challenging total. Therefore, English batters need to showcase their true ability against India’s bowling line-up in the second match to put up a big total in their innings.

India Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami rattled England’s batting line-up in the first match of the ODI series. Bumrah, in particular, was ruthless, picking up his career-best figure of 6/19 in the contest. He also surpassed Ashish Nehra’s 6/23 to have the best ODI bowling figure between these two teams. Both Bumrah and Shami will once again be key bowlers for India in the ENG vs IND 2nd ODI 2022 at Lord’s. In the first match, Rohit and Shikhar did the job for India in batting. Therefore, other batters didn't get a chance to bat in the match. The batting unit needs to be well prepared for the second ODI as the English team is likely to play hard in Thursday’s encounter. Virat Kohli could return in the second match after missing the series opener due to an injury.

London’s weather forecast & toss prediction According to the weather report, Thursday in London is expected to be mostly bright and comfortable. Therefore, it will be a wonderful day to hold a cricket match. Nine ODIs have been played since 2017 at Lord's, and seven of them have been won by the team that batted first. That is why the captain who wins the toss may decide to bat first. Bottom Line The Rohit Sharma-led Indian side has performed to their full potential in the limited-overs series against England. India were the better side in the T20 series, and it seems they are favourites to clinch the ODI series as well. However, England are a very competitive team across all formats and they have the ability to make a strong comeback on any given day. As a result, Indian players must be more committed in the ENG vs IND 2nd ODI 2022. On the other hand, England's players have to showcase their true prowess in Thursday’s do-or-die contest in order to stay alive in the series.

India have shown an invigorated performance under the leadership of pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the ENG vs IND 2022 fifth Test at Edgbaston in Birmingham. India are 332 runs ahead of England in the first innings, as the hosts have made 84/5 at the end of day 2. The second day was a nightmare for English pacer Stuart Broad as he conceded 35 runs in an over and became the holder of the costliest over ever in the Test format. India’s captain Jasprit Bumrah ran riot over Stuart Broad in that particular over, who also became the highest scorer (31) for any debutant captain batting at no.10. The fifth match scenario is discussed in this article. England vs India fifth Test: The match scenario English captain Ben Stokes opted to field first after winning the toss in the ENG vs IND 2022 fifth Test. India’s regular Test captain, Rohit Sharma, has been unable to participate because of COVID-19 positive syndrome. In place of him, the team management handed over the captaincy to Jasprit Bumrah. Shubman Gill replaced Rohit and opened the innings with the experienced Cheteshwar Pujara. England’s plan to put pressure on India’s batting line-up early in the innings materialized as they picked up five wickets for only 98 runs. However, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja’s 222-run partnership for the sixth wicket discarded England’s early good work and put pressure on the home team bowlers. Pant made a swashbuckling effort with the bat by scoring 146 runs in just 111 deliveries, which included 4 sixes and 19 boundaries. Jadeja, on the other hand, scored 104 runs. Read WI vs BAN: Rain-hit T20I series opener washes away England were hoping to wrap up India’s first innings after Joe Root broke the partnership in the third session of day 1. However, captain Jasprit Bumrah’s quick-fire 31 off 16 guided India to score 416 in the first innings. Veteran James Anderson showed yet another master-class performance with the ball as he picked up five wickets in the innings. In reply, England had a terrible start to their innings, losing 5 wickets and making 84 runs at the end of day 2. Jonny Bairstow (12) and captain Ben Stokes remained unbeaten at the crease. England will be hoping these two batsmen continue to develop a strong stand in the middle and stay firm in the contest. Skipper Jasprit Bumrah had a brilliant spell on day 2 as he picked up three wickets for India. A look back at the most expensive overs in Test cricket One of the major highlights of day 2 was Stuart Broad’s one embarrassing over to Jasprit Bumrah. It was the 84th over of India’s first innings and the bowler was Stuart Broad. Bumrah took on the English legend and hammered 29 runs with the bat. Six more runs were also scored thanks to extras. Overall, 35 runs were scored, which was the most expensive over in Test cricket history.

Bumrah set a new record for himself by scoring 29 runs. Jasprit Bumrah finished his innings with an undefeated 31* and became the debutant skipper with the most runs while batting at 10.

The visiting side will put the host team under more pressure if they can bowl them out as early as possible on day 3 and force them to follow on. On the other hand, England need a big partnership between captain Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow for the sixth wicket in order to make a strong comeback in the contest.
The fifth Test between England and India in Manchester was postponed last year due to the growing number of COVID-19 positive cases in the Indian campaign. The respective cricket boards of the two nations agreed to organize the match during India’s white-ball teams' visit to England in July 2022. Therefore, the ENG vs IND 2022 fifth Test match will be played before the limited-overs series and will start on July 1. The Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham will host the contest. The match preview of the final Test of England versus India series is discussed in this article. England vs India Test Series 2021: Fifth Test Match Preview By taking a 2-1 lead, India have the edge over England in this series. England, on the other hand, must win this game in order to tie the series 2-2. Had the fifth match been contested a couple of months ago, India would have been favourite to clinch it. However, a lot has changed since Ben Stokes became the captain of the English Test side. Stokes-led England thumped New Zealand 3-0 at home. They seem more confident and aggressive-minded than they were under Joe Root’s captaincy. Besides, England’s record over India at Edgbaston is completely one-sided. They have never lost a Test match against India at this ground. Read Shakib uncertain for West Indies ODIs England vs India Test record at the Edgbaston in Birmingham Match England Won India Won Draw 7 6 0 1 Source: https://www.espncricinfo.com/ India India’s biggest concern at the moment is captain Rohit Sharma’s availability for the fifth match. Rohit was tested positive for COVID-19 last week, but the Indian campaign will wait for his availability until the last moment. If Rohit misses the match, then either Hanuma Vihari or Shubman Gill will fill his spot in the playing XI. Another hot topic is who will lead Team India in Rohit's absence. There is a possibility that Jasprit Bumrah may captain this Indian Test side or Rishabh Pant could be picked as the skipper for the contest. The possibility of Virat Kohli being able to captain the team for this one match can’t be ruled out either. Read Nurul, Khaled make jump in ICC Ranking Top-Order: Rohit Sharma (captain)/Hanuma Vihari, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara; Middle-Order: Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur; Lower-Order: Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj. England The English campaign is in a jovial mood at the moment after their recent success against New Zealand. The team spirit is really high under the leadership of Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum. England will likely deploy four pacers to make things difficult for the Indian batting line-up. In batting, Bairstow is in red-hot form and he can be devastating when needed. Top-Order: Alex Lees, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope; Middle-Order: Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (captain), Ben Foakes (wicket-keeper), Matthew Potts; Lower-Order: Jack Leach, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.

The match could be interrupted briefly if rain remains persistent during the contest. Like the other venues in England, the Edgbaston pitch in Birmingham will likely favour the quicker bowlers, especially on day 1. The average first innings score in the Test format at this venue is 308. Besides, both campaigns also have to consider the weather conditions before making their decision. However, opting to field first should be an ideal choice for a toss-winning captain. Aftermath There is no shortage of talent in the English campaign, but it’s bizarre how England made a brilliant comeback in the home series against New Zealand after losing a Test series against West Indies. England whitewashed New Zealand (3-0) in their recent series, and now they can consider themselves favourites to beat India in the fifth match. India, on the other hand, is struggling to select their preferred playing XI. Captain Rohit Sharma is still uncertain for the ENG vs IND 2022 fifth Test match. However, this is expected to be an eye-catching contest as both sides consist of some of the best cricketers in the world.
