England will look to level the ODI series in the second of three white ball matches against India.

Eoin Morgan’s tourists lost the first one day international fixture in India by 66 runs on 23 March.

Jonny Bairstow smashed 94 from 66 balls in the chase but England fell well short of India’s 317-5, inspired by Krunal Pandya who hit the fastest ODI half-century by a player on debut.

England will look to bounce back immediately by adopting the aggressive style that led Morgan’s men to 2019 World Cup glory in dramatic circumstances over New Zealand at Lord’s.
