IND Vs ENG: England beat India by 6 wickets in the second ODI. England have also managed to level 1-1 in the three-match series. Butler, who is leading the England team in place of Morgan, said that his bowlers had done commendably in the middle of the Indian innings and that was why his team could prevent India from scoring a bigger score.
After losing the toss, India scored a huge score of 336 runs for 6 wickets in the first game but England achieved the target at the loss of four wickets in 43.3 overs. Johnny Beyersto, who played an excellent innings of 124 runs, first shared a 110-run partnership for the first wicket with Jason Roy (55) and then a 175-run partnership for the second wicket with Ben Stokes, who scored 99 runs. Bairstow was also awarded the title of man of the match for this magnificent century.

Butler said, “Pleased with the response from our teammates. We have done a very good bowling performance to restrict India to 336 runs. I am happy that we are committed to the style in which we want to play our cricket.” The bowlers did an extraordinary job to stop the Indian batsmen in the overs. The way we played is fantastic. There was a fantastic opening partnership and then Stokes and Beyersto played the best innings. “
