New Delhi: Virat Kohli era started with a bang on Sunday with India chasing down England’s 350 in Pune. And India are likely to continue their impressive form in the second ODI against the visitors on Thursday in Cuttack.
Here’s everything you need to know about the match:
India will aim to wrap up the three-match ODI series tomorrow itself when the two teams meet in the second match.
The second match is also likely to be a high-scoring match. In the last match played at the Barabati Stadium, Haryana scored 502 in their first innings against Jammu & Kashmir in a Ranji Trophy match.

The venue hosted its last ODI more than two years ago. In that match, India scored a record 363/5 and thrashed Sri Lanka by 169 runs on November 2, 2014.
As usual, the toss will be crucial, at least for England. India wouldn’t mind batting first, even though they have earned the reputation of being the best chasers in the game today.
