Chris Jordan was picked ahead Steven Finn  for England and looked a strange decision from the start. After India were pushed on the backfoot after Chris Woakes pegged the team back with early wickets that rattled the opponents. Jordan then gave Indians a huge sigh of relief  with wayward bowling. The 39th over came for much ridicule after plenty of wides — five to be precise and was a subject of much ridicule by the partisan crowd.

After doing all the hard work, Rohit Sharma departed off a very poor shot of James Tredwell to leave India four down against India in the second One-Day International (ODI). Treadwell enticed Rohit to play a lofted shot, Rohit danced down the wicket but only found Woakes’s gleeful hands at long-off and India were pegged back again with the visitors four down. Suresh Raina played with caution and had to deal with a lot of short pitched stuff, quite predictably. Raina did take the ariel route whenever he got the opportunity and scored a few lovely boundaries. MS Dhoni has started rather slowly and it is evident that he is looking to carry his bat till the later overs.

Earlier, Rohit brought up his 23rd half-century for India as he has done an excellent job, playing an uncharacteristic slow innings and taking the team to a respectable position at this point in the game. England had him in knots in the early half of the day’s play but Rohit was patient and painstakingly stitched a good partnership with Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane did not last long and new man Suresh Raina made a fine start, being his usual aggressive self.

Ajinkya Rahane, meanwhile was dismissed rather amateurishly by James Tredwell but credit should go to the smart work by Jos Buttler behind the stumps as the Indian batsman was guilty of keeping his foot on the line against a spinner. The line was the umpire’s are and was given out by the third umpire. Ajinkya Rahane was the least bit deterred by the fall of wickets at the other end and is going extremely strong and has been severe on Jordan, caressing a couple of gorgeous drives down the ground.

After seeing off the early storm, Rohit has joined in the act too and is batting more freely in the centre. The spinners are in play and India are hardly ruffled by James Treadwell and Joe Root. The duo are closing in on a hundred partnership and this has been India’s best phase on the tour after the end of Lord’s Test.
