India outplayed England in all departments of the game while contesting the second One Day International and grabbed it by a huge margin of 133 runs (D/L method). The visitors lead the five match series at 1-0 and the second top team in the ICC ranking will be eyeing on the highest spot. Team England is placed at the fifth position but they will concentrate on the present series and will try to achieve the identical results they achieved in the Test series against the Blue Shirts.
