India vs England Live Streaming Star Cricket
A lot of things going in everyone's mind about the pitch, about the first test and about the feud between Anderson and Jadeja. Adding flavours to the test series, we are all set to witness another big test at the Lord's - India vs England 2nd test match. Before we preview this second test, just to let you all know, India vs England 2014 live streaming cricket is available on official Star Sports website and live telecast can be enjoyed on Star Sports channels in India.
The first test served good heavenly track for the batsmen but it didn't work in interest of cricket of the crowd. Such pitches don't produce results; hence the biggest concern in the second test stays to be the nature of the pitch. Couple of tweets from Michael Vaughan and Stuart Broad indicated that the pitch might help England more than India. But the key would be to bat first and post a good 400 plus total on the board.
MS Dhoni is not too keen on the pitch. He said the team is open to all kind of pitches so just bring it on! He had a brave opinion saying they have seen a lot of flat tracks in the sub-continent. They want to see some pace, bounce and swing which can expose his youngsters to cricketing conditions away from home.
The feud between Jadeja and Anderson is getting messy. Dhoni is in no compromise mood. While Captain Cook feels this is all strategy to pressurise England, Dhoni is firm on his stance. He believes they can't bear any behaviour that lacks sportsmanship. The whole issue begun when umpire turned down Anderson's caught behind appeal against Jadeja. Anderson allegedly pushed Jadeja and that is where the matter grew. Now it is upto ICC to charge Anderson and Jadeja with code of conduct. Anderson or Jadeja may face more than a match's ban.
As far as the playing XI is concerned, it is believed to be the same as test one. Cricket fans would love to see Ashwin in second test but Dhoni may give Jadeja and Binny another chance. Conditions here at Lord's can favour swing and Binny may come into picture. Jadeja comes in handy with his spin and bat too.
England lacks a quality spinner to take full advantage of the pitch here at Lord's. Moeen Ali can't be considered as a full time spinner and Cook can't be too confident about him. So he would still rely more on his pacers like Broad and Anderson. Hopefully Jordan gets a chance today.
A lot depends on the performances of this test. Team that manages a win here might have an upper hand in the remainder of this series. Just wait and watch is all we can say apart from enjoying quality cricket at the home of this game.
