  • MS Dhoni booed at Lord's after batting go-slow in big England win

Kuldeep had ripped through England in the first match at Trent Bridge on Thursday, taking six for 25 in India's win, and although he picked up another three wickets at Lord's on Saturday, England played much more positively against him, taking him for nearly seven an over in their 86-run victory.

Hosts England, with a morale-boosting victory in the previous encounter, will aim to continue playing ruthless cricket as advised by their key batsman Joe Root post the last match.

"Every one of the England team would hold their heads up and say that in the first game we were absolutely drilled, we were beaten into the dirt so we knew we had to improve for the second game", he said. "We totally believe in him and the ability of all the players", the skipper said.

Yadav has been the main tormentor of England as he has grabbed nine wickets in the two matches so far. Wood bowled only 5 overs but got the important wicket of Rohit Sharma as the first breakthrough and pretty much initiated the downfall.

Earlier in the day, Dhoni also became the fourth wicket-keeper to complete 300 ODI catches after Adam Gilchrist (417), Mark Boucher (403) and Kumar Sangakkara (402). Where no Indian batsman could even manage a half century the England No.3 scored a hundred, the 12th of his ODI career. We always try and judge how we approach the game and how we go about things.

India were chasing a competitive target of 323 on a Lord's track that slowed down and for once the top order failed with a lot of responsibility on Dhoni.

Even though Vince has only been used in Test cricket since the last of his five one-day internationals against Bangladesh 18 months ago there are plenty of observers who consider his real strength to be in the white-ball game. The average has been 29.66 which can be put in perspective considering at what time of the innings, he comes into bat.

It leaves Dhoni with either No 6 or 7 depending on where Kohli wants the big-hitting Hardik Pandya.

India must decide whether to stick with the same XI that has played the first two games.

Wickets falling at regular intervals at the other end did not help Dhoni's cause, but the seeming lack of intent from one of the best finishers in modern-day cricket surprised and frustrated quite a few cricket fans. "And just as a batting unit we could not click".

"I think the main thing is he keeps getting wickets in his first over".

The Leeds wicket is good for batting, though there can be a bit of a movement for the bowlers early on which brings the pacers into play. "If it was one down we could have attacked a bit more", Kohli said. "We just knew what we needed to get better", he said.
