England beat India by 86 runs in second ODI


England beat India by 86 runs in second ODI,Still, amid all that Dhoni nonsense we should say a word for Joe Root, who got a nicely paced century (although, hands up, even at a strike rate of about 97 I thought might have been a bit slow before Dhoni came to the crease), plus England’s spinners, who were both exceptional. Hats off also to Mo Ali and Adil Rashid, who between them got 3-80 in their combined 20 overs. England win by 86 runs Chahal c Stokes b Willey 12 – India 236 all outChahal plays another nice shot, a square drive that Bairstow cuts off. He then plays a miscued pull that is still better than most shots Dhoni played. And then a big drive that he edges through where second slip would have been, getting four, before sending the last ball down long-on’s throat.
