The Indian team’s pacers have been outstanding, and the pitch here would also be helpful to them. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma once more demonstrated their value. England won’t be too dissatisfied since this is how they want to play the game and they intend to keep playing aggressively.
Lord’s Cricket Ground pitch report
One of the top sporting grounds in the world is the Lord’s Stadium field in London. The pacers have historically benefited from this surface, and the same may be anticipated for this game as well. The pitch does, however, actually bounce, and after the hitters have settled down, they are free to play their strokes.
There have been 66 ODIs played here, with the defending nations winning 31 of them, the chasing teams winning 33, and two ODIs ending in ties. Five of the previous six games played here have been won by the teams batting first, with one game ending in a draw.
👏 @BCCI win the first ODI in the Royal London Series at The Oval.

The pacers will be able to swing the ball as well in the first overs of the game since this track will have more bounce than the one we witnessed in the previous match at the Kennington Oval. The hitters will benefit from the outfield’s speed and the relatively short barrier on one side.
When England and Pakistan last played here in an ODI, England managed to score 247 runs while Pakistan was bowled out for 195 runs. Both teams’ pace bowlers did an excellent job, and Pakistan’s Hasan Ali claimed a wicket. At this stadium, the first inning average is 242 runs.
