ESPN Star Cricket Live Streaming India vs Pakistan 2nd ODI

The series of arch rivals moves towards eastern parts of India as the 2nd ODI between India and Pakistan will be hosted by the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. This stadium is easily one of the best cricket stadiums around the world and can include over 75,000 spectators.

Pakistan is enjoying a 1-0 lead in this three ODI series and way forward for them is much easier than India. Equation is pretty simple now. If Pakistan have to win this ODI series all they need is just one win out of the remaining two matches. Meanwhile under pressure hosts India have to win both the remaining matches to win the ODI series.

We witnessed some brilliant performances from players like MS Dhoni, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Junaid Khan and Nasir Jamshed. A brilliant fighting century from MS Dhoni was followed by a match winning  ton by Nasir Jamshed. On the other hand bowlers like Kumar and Junaid were highly impressive.

India needs to pull up their socks if they have to win both the matches. The record here at the Eden Gardens support Pakistan more as they have played four matches against India and won all of them. The only match Pakistan lost here at the Eden Gardens was against Srilanka in the Independence Cup Final held way back in second half of the nineties.

Indian batsmen Sehwag, Gambhir, Kohli, Sharma and Yuvraj Singh failed miserably in the first ODI ansd we can expect a big knock from atleast two of these players. India needs big knocks from their front line batsmen to put a competitive total on the board and give their bowlers something to defend.

India vs Australia 2013 test schedule is already declared and we will witness this historic series just after the conclusion of India vs England 2013 ODI series which begins this month.
