Prasidh Krishna bowled a toe crushing yorker to castle Jos Buttler’s off stump, which left him in shock.
Prasidh Krishna has yet again shown his class with the ball by dismissing Jos Buttler. He clean bowled Buttler with a peach of a yorker during the second ODI between India and England at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. While chasing a daunting total of 337 runs, England openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow gave them a flying start yet again.
Roy and Bairstow yet again stitched together a quickfire hundred runs partnership for the first wicket. The duo scored 110 runs in just 84 deliveries. Rohit Sharma provided the breakthrough with a superb bit of fielding to run out Jason Roy. Ben Stokes then joined hands with Bairstow and took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners. They scored 175 runs for the second wicket before India dismissed both of them in quick succession.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar broke the partnership between them by dismissing Ben Stokes for 99. Stokes scored 99 in just 52 balls. His innings included four fours and ten sixes. Just after adding two runs, Bairstow lost his wicket to Prasidh Krishna after having scored 124 runs. After 3 balls, he castled Buttler’s stumps with a peach of a yorker.
Prasidh bowled two dot balls and then bowled an off-stump yorker with sheer pace. Buttler could not bring his bat down on time and the ball sneaked below his bat and castled the stumps. That was a gem of a delivery from Krishna to which Buttler had no answer.

Prasidh made a remarkable debut earlier this week in the first ODI. His 4-wicket haul propelled the hosts to a win against the tourists in the first ODI.
How the match turned out eventually for the two sides?
Coming to the game, India scored 336 runs for the loss of six wickets in their 50 overs. KL Rahul scored a century ( 109 runs off 114 balls) band Rishabh Pant ( 77 off 40) and Virat Kohli (66 off 79) scored half-centuries each. Chasing the total, England secured a comfortable win against the hosts.
Jonny Bairstow was the highest run-scorer of the innings scoring 124 runs off 112 balls. His opening partner Jason Roy scored 55 runs off 52 balls. Ben Stokes came in and scored 99 runs off 52 balls. When they lost three wickets in close succession, Dawid Malan and Liam Livingstone guided them to a six wickets victory with 6.3 overs to spare. The series is now nicely poised at 1-1, with the series decider at the same venue on March 28.
This will be quite a crucial game. The likes of Prasidh Krishna and co. will want to make an impact yet again. The games so far have been high scoring and the two teams are looking good. Only time will now tell which of these two teams come out on top. Both are doing great in terms of overall play and this quite a contest so far.
