India are taking on England in the second match of the three-match ODI series on Thursday at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. After thrashing the hosts in the first match, the Men in Blue will be brimming with confidence and will look to seal the series with a win at Lord’s. However, it won’t be easy for India to go past a wounded England looking to make a comeback.
Nonetheless, the Men in Blue will have a lot of support as they usually have irrespective of where they play. While the Indian cricket team fans are cheering hard for the Rohit Sharma-led team, there are expected to be two special guests to cheer for team India in the second ODI. World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni and former India batter Suresh Raina will be in attendance for the second ODI.
The two former Indian cricketers who share a great bond will be attending the second ODI between England and India together. Notably, MS Dhoni has been in England for the past few days. The former India captain celebrated his 41st birthday in England. Dhoni was also in attendance at the Wimbledon Final. He then met with Indian cricketers as well.
