Yuzvendra ChahalClever variations are accomplished. Hardik PandyaHis steady fast medium bowling bowled out England for 246 in 49 overs in the second ODI at Lord’s on Thursday. However, it was Moeen Ali (47 off 64 balls) who bravely took the attack back into the opposition camp and hit back-to-back sixes with slog sweeps as a panicked top-order promised much but then England’s total. There was some semblance of respect.

With figures of 4/47, Chahal now has the best returns for an Indian bowler in ODIs at Lord’s. He surpassed Mahendra Amarnath’s figures of 3/12 against West Indies in the 1983 World Cup final.

Moeen and David Wiley (41 off 49 balls) added 62 runs for the seventh wicket to help set up a target of 250 when 200 looked impossible at one point.

On a two-pace track, Chahal (10-0-47-4) was brilliant in handling his length and gave the ball plenty of air as he got rid of England’s ‘big three’. Jonny Bairstow (31) Joe Root (11) And Ben Stokes (21) — and then took Moeen out when he was looking dangerous.

It was a steady start for England as Roy first tried to break the shackles by taking the Syrian down the track and hit him over midwicket for a six before whipping him in the same area for a boundary.

When Rohit got Pandya in the powerplay, he showed great improvisational skills. Roy went for an impudence and Surya Kumar Yadav A few yards on the backward square leg boundary was the easiest of the catches.

It was during the middle overs that Chahal was brilliant as he controlled the white kookaburra like a yo-yo, sometimes pushing the delivery fuller and going for a sweep shot to deceive Bairstow with no space available. .

In terms of the route, there was plenty of flight but the length dropped slightly as he went for a sweep and missed the line.

Stokes tried to reverse-sweep a straight delivery and Livingstone, after scoring 33 off one ball, was caught out by Pandya, and the home team was in trouble.


But Moeen, knowing that the Indian bowlers would bowl him with the short stuff, handled it well and Willy, at the other end, was steady as in the first game as they both took England past the 200-run mark.

Chahal ended his fine spell when he bowled a bit full and wide, leading to a slog sweep by Moeen towards the longest stretch of the Lord’s ground. The batsman could not clear Ravindra Jadejawho ran around the deep mid-wicket area to take a well-judged catch.
