New Delhi: Before the second ODI against India, the England team has suffered two big setbacks. England captain Eoin Morgan will not be able to play in the last two ODIs against India due to injury. Apart from this, Sam Billings will also not be available in the second match on Friday. Whether or not Billings is able to play in the third ODI will be decided later.
Jose butler will captain
In the absence of Eoin Morgan, senior wicketkeeper batsman Jos Buttler will captain the England team. While Liam Livingstone will replace Sam Billings. With this, he will get a chance to make an ODI debut. However, the England team will now miss their captain in the entire series. While in the middle order billings also do a good job. In such a situation, England’s team may get into trouble in the next match.
Morgan injured in first ODI
Eoin Morgan was injured during the first match played on Tuesday. His thumb and his near finger hurt and four stitches had to be put on it. The England captain on Thursday declared himself unfit after practicing fielding at the MCA Stadium. While Sam Billings was also injured during the first match. He did not even participate in practice on Thursday. David Malan has been included in the team and will be available for selection.
India has a chance to win the series
India have the best chance of winning the series by defeating England in the next match. India is already ahead 1–0 in this series. If India wins the next match, then the series will be in its name. Not only this, if Team India wins the next two matches, then it will reach the top in the ODI rankings.
