Kochi: Jan 14, 2013

Will luck smile on India when they take on England in the second one-day international at the Jawaharlal Nehru International stadium at Kochi which has been a happy hunting ground for the hosts with four of the six ODIs played going in their favour.

India has lost two matches and a tie between India and Australia on October 17, 2010 was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to heavy rain.

The highest total that was notched up was 309 for five by India in the opening match against Australia on April 1, 1998.

The match also witnessed Sachin Tendulkar doing wonders with the ball claiming five for 32 in his 10 overs, which incidentally is the best bowling effort by him.

Seven years later Tendulkar again stole the limelight with his leg spin against Pakistan claiming five for 50 and both five wickets haul in his ODI career came on this ground.

The second match was also a high scoring tie between India and South Africa on March 9, 2000, in which the latter scored 301 for 3 and India overhauled the total with 302 for 7.

The present fixture is a day/night match.
