That's all we have for today. Hope you have enjoyed our coverage. It was an entertaining match and top effort from England to level the series. We'll be back for the final on Sunday. Hope it will be a cracker of a game. 

See you soon. 

21:54 (IST)

Jonny Bairstow: "Delighted to get across the line today. I thought we were excellent last game so the thought process was the same, the same game plan. Today they bowled well at the top. Bhuvi, we know his skills and how difficult he's to get away. The relationship we have at the top of the order is great, and long may that continue."

21:51 (IST)

Jos Buttler: Delighted with the response from the guys. I think it was a very good bowling performance as well. And then the guys came out and played fantastically well, the intent and partnerships from the start made it a brilliant chase. Some people talked about our way and if we need to be smarter, of course we want to play smart cricket but it's important to commit to our style of play.

21:49 (IST)

Jonny Bairstow is the Man of the Match

21:45 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "I think we set a decent total on board. We started off really well with the new ball. I thought they batted really well tonight. That was some of the best hitting that you'll ever see in the chase. We never had a chance during their partnership (Stokes-Bairstow), that's how good they were. They thoroughly deserve to win. I don't think dew was a factor. Tonight it was a case of lack of execution from our side. We need to manage his (Hardik) workload as well. We want to make make sure that Hardik Pandya is fit for the future. I never played for hundreds in my life, probably why I ended up getting so many in such a short while. It's more important for the team to win. If I get a three-figure score and the team doesn't win, it means nothing."

21:42 (IST)

Not a good day for Indian spinners.

21:35 (IST)

Ben Stokes: Most pleasing thing for us as a team is that we didn't go away from our values. It was a great chase, really happy that we managed to get over the line easily especially when India set a challenging total. 

21:30 (IST)

Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes made absolute mockery of the chase. Bairstow ended up making a century but Stokes failed, falling just one run short of his ton. Both batsmen hit a combine total of 17 sixes. Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya took the maximum beating. Everything went right with India's batting performance but can't say the same about their bowling. All set for the final on Sunday. 

21:26 (IST)

That's it!

Malan hits the winning runs. A misfield at deep square-leg results in two runs. England chase down 337 with six wickets in hand and 39 balls to spare. What a performance from the visitors to level the three-match series 1-1.

21:22 (IST)

After 43 overs,England 330/4 ( Dawid Malan 14 , Liam Livingstone 27)

Prasidh Krishna continues. Two angling across deliveries to beat Malan both the times. The next one is too high so the umpire signals it wide. The pacer snares two yorkers to Livingstone and follows it up with a back of a length delivery. Three dots to end the over.

India vs England Live Score, Live Cricket Score, 2nd ODI at Pune Live Updates: Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes made absolute mockery of the chase. Bairstow ended up making a century but Stokes failed, falling just one run short of his ton. Both batsmen hit a combine total of 17 sixes. Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya took the maximum beating.

Preview: With momentum on their side, Virat Kohli's India will aim to clinch the second ODI and seal the series against England at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Friday.

After winning the T20I series, India went on earn victory in the first ODI by 66 runs. Batting first, India scored 317/5, while England, after getting a great start, collapsed and were bowled out for 251.

Eoin Morgan will miss this match and the next one due to injury so Jos Buttler will lead the side in his absence. Sam Billings will also unavailable for the second match and Liam Livingstone is set to make his ODI debut on Friday. The ECB said Dawid Malan has been drafted into the squad and is available for selection.

Morgan went through a fielding drill during training at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Thursday and afterwards declared himself unfit.

"I had the hand re-dressed before the start of training today but it quickly became apparent that I found myself protecting the injury and getting into the wrong positions to catch the ball," said Morgan in an ECB statement.

"There's nowhere to hide on the field in international cricket these days, especially in limited-over formats so it didn't require any great thought to make myself unavailable," the 2019 World Cup-winning skipper added.

Meanwhile, Livingstone believes he is now better prepared for the challenges of international cricket.

"I am absolutely ready – the first time around was very different to now and I have been waiting for this opportunity for a while now," he said.

"This is not just any old team you are trying to get into. They are world champions."

Highlights, CSK vs SRH, IPL 2021, Match 23, Full Cricket Score: Chennai win by 7 wickets, go top of the table

IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, CSK vs SRH (Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hydrebad): MS Dhoni tosses the coin, but SRH win the toss and David Warner decides to bat first. "It looks like a different surface than we expected. The pitch has a nice grass covering, we are looking to put runs on the board and win. Two changes - Abhishek Sharma and Virat Singh make way for Manish Pandey and Sandeep Sharma," said Warner. MS Dhoni said he would have bowled anyway. "We were looking to bowl first. There is grass but the pitch looks tacky. There was a lot of dew last evening, and whenever there's dew, we prefer to bowl first. Lungi Ngidi and Moin Ali come back in playing 11 for Bravo and Tahir," said MSD at the toss.
