In the second ODI against England, Team India lacked one of the main aspect of the game in the likes of their bowling which was quite off.
Cricket news: The Indians will hope to win the ODI series like the T20Is
Although Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal did bowl well to contain the English batsmen to some point with their spin, but the century from Test skipper Joe Root was enough to get the Brits home.
Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah was injured and was forced to be benched after the series against Ireland and all the responsibilities came down on the shoulders of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav.
But that plan too went down the drain as Bhuvi got injured and was left out of the squad for a due days due to a strain.
This ensured Virat Kohli’s U-19 teammate Siddharth Kaul to don the Indian jersey as he was awarded for his excellent performances for Sunrisers Hyderabad in this year’s IPL.
Recently the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to twitter to announce a piece of good news.
Bhuvi was seen bowling in the nets in the practice session at Leeds prior to the final ODI game. If Bhuvi gets selected in the squad he would have a vital role to play in the series decider.
However this has given the management another headache whether to leave Umesh Yadav or Siddharth Kaul out of the starting XI. It would probably be Kaul as he had went for plenty of runs.
The series is currently tied at 1-1 as India and England will lock horns in the final ODI at Leeds which will decide the series.
