England vs India Odds: Men in Blue to pile on the misery
The games continue to come thick and fast for England's white ball squad. After losing the T20 series 2-1, they now face an uphill battle against India again in three 50-over One Day Internationals. England were demolished in the first game and now have to try to respond at Lords.

England vs. India Tips
Well, no one ever said it was gonna be easy...
The problem with playing full-throttle, 100mph cricket at all times is occasionally you are going to realise you have no brakes and plough straight off the nearest cliff. That's exactly what happened on Tuesday when England were absolutely battered by a ruthless Indian team. Jasprit Bumrah caused havoc with the ball as the England top/middle order were simply blown away. Then the opening partnership of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan made it look like India were batting on a different strip as they cruised to a 10-wicket victory.
England will need to accept that playing the brand of cricket they do, that these could become regular occurrences but the good days should outweigh the bad. The bowling is a real concern though. It looks impotent at the moment.
Predicted team news:
England XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Craig Overton, David Willey, Brydon Carse, Reece Topley
Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
First up and we're predicting India to continue their white ball dominance over England. The two teams both have superb batting line-ups but the bowling is a different matter. With the likes of Bumrah and Shami causing distress with the new ball, India are always going to be a constant threat. Their all rounders of Pandya and Jadeja both look better with the ball than Strokes and Ali in this format too. I'm expecting that extra firepower to restrict England to a total that India can surpass with the bat.
The one man who can cause trouble with the new ball for England is David Willey. Willey was the pick of the bowlers in Amsterdam and again in the first ODI, bowling three overs for just eight runs. Willey swings the ball prodigiously and is always a threat swinging it back into the right hander.
