After the euphoric highs of recent weeks, trust India to bring England crashing back down to Earth. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami took aim and inflicted England's heaviest ever home defeat, a 10-wicket obliteration that ended with less than half of the allotted overs bowled. With the hosts now staring down the barrel of a second consecutive white-ball defeat to the Men in Blue, follow our guide as we explain how to watch an England vs India live stream for the 2nd ODI online from anywhere.

Much had been made of the reunion of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who fired England to glory in the 2019 ODI Cricket World Cup Final by combining for 203 of their 241-run total. On Tuesday they totted up 37 runs between them, with Roy, Root and Stokes going for ducks.

This is the risk that comes with England's new front-foot approach, but having been thrashed by India in three of their four white-ball meetings in the past week, the watching circus is beginning to draw some rather unfavorable conclusions.

Never mind the spectators, the first ODI was over far too quickly even for India's liking. Rohit Sharma had been hoping to grant Virat Kohli an extended period in the crosshairs to get the former skipper back up to speed, but he wasn't even required to step out onto the pitch. 

Can the hosts make a better fist of things at Lord's today? Follow our guide for all the details you need to watch England vs India and get a 2nd ODI live stream from wherever you are.

How to watch England vs India ODI cricket from outside your country

Below we've got you covered with your official England vs India broadcasting options for the US, Australia and New Zealand, but if you're currently outside your country of residence and trying to stream the cricket via your local broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted.
