The 2nd ODI will be played on Tuesday afternoon between England and India and after the 1st ODI India are feeling hard done by while England are still calm and collected. It will be intersting to see if Parthiv Patel can back up his 1st ODI score with another big score as anyone who watched that game sure were entertained. Kieswetter will have to get out of his bad form currently so he can start hitting the Indian bowlers around the park with his aggresive hitting.
6th September, Rose Bowl

How the Teams Stand
England no doubt were on the ropes in the first ODI being 2/27 and chasing a big total but luck was on there sides again as the rain started pouring down and the match was eventually called off. England would have noticed their mistakes and this ODI will obviously try and fix what they did wrong and change any tactics that went wrong like the short pitched bowling. We didn’t get to see too much of the England batsman with only Cook and Kieswetter out but they do have an amazing batting lineup but also keep in mind Pietersen has been rested. The bowling was very much too short in the first ODI and that caused Parthiv Patel to score a lot of runs. The death bowling from Dernbach and Bresnan was very good and that restriected India to a lower total than what they expected after a bright start.
