This season, after being dropped for the first Test against Pakistan, he can not be accused of squandering his talent with sloppy shots because he has made a first-class double-hundred, and 171 in a 50-over county game, to suggest some ingots of inner steel. Kuldeep Yadav's left-arm wristspin claimed 6 for 25 in the series opener at Trent Bridge, and though he was less economical second-time out, he still picked up a further three wickets at Lord's.
It was also the first time since the 2011 World Cup semi-final that India failed hit a six in an ODI, ESPNCricinfo reported.
"This winner-takes-all game, it´s brilliant". If we can use this game as a semi-final, or a final, a must-win with the pressure on we can learn what we are doing wrong if we dont win or what we are doing right if we do win.
"It´s a significant game on Tuesday". Because later on there were only me, Siddarth Kaul and Kuldeep Yadav, so it wasn't like 2-3 batsmen were remaining.
Virat Kohli clean bowled by a leg-spinner for the first time
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. "I know he still took wickets but we managed to get some runs against him and put him under a little bit of pressure", Woods said at the pre-match press conference.
"We emphasised the need to be clear on your plan and then sticking to it, and that's what we did".
"We've prepared the same [as any other game], it'll be the same preparation in the morning before the game so I'd imagine it's pretty much the same feel".
England Test captain Joe Root scored a century at Lord´s as the hosts posted a competitive total of 322 for seven. Eoin Morgan keeps the side pretty even making sure highs are not too high or lows too low. We have a few batsmen down the order who can score quickly.
Asked why, Morgan replied: "Just home ground knowledge really". There was disappointment after the first game. "We thought it was hard on the top and soft underneath, the rain wasn't significant enough on Friday to have any consideration of sweat on top or soft on top".
