New Delhi :

Team India under the reigns of newly appointed captain Virat Kohli will be high on confidence when they face visitors England in the 2nd ODI match of the series at Cuttack. India is currently 1 up in the three-match series after defeating the English team by 3 three wickets in Pune.

The match will be played at Cuttack's Barabati stadium, where dew factor might play a major role looking at the climatic condition in Orissa. The game is scheduled to start at 1:30 PM.

In such a case, Toss will play a really crucial role as the team batting second might have an upper hand in the match.

The Indian team is already thrilled after a comfortable chase of more than 350 runs in the first match. The team is looking pretty settled and with the likes of 'master chaser' Virat Kohli, the team would look to chase down any target under his leadership. The man in blue would also like to eye series victory to make things easier for them before they head to Champions Trophy later this year.

On the other hand, it will be a must-win-situation for the visitors England as one more defeat can cost them the series. Team’s batting composition looks well, but they need to strengthen their bowling attack when they face Indian batting line-up in Cuttack. Leaking runs in the middle order is really hurting the English team while restricting the Indian batsman.

India has had a good record at the Barabati Stadium, where they have won 11 out of their 15 ODI games. Kolkata’s Eden Garden will host the last and final ODI of the series on January 22.
