The second One Day International between two cricketing superpowers, India and England saw a high-scoring clash as both the teams made the most out of the flat pitch of the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune but the visitors managed to have the last laugh as they emerged victorious by 6 wickets to level the three-match series by 1-1.
Meanwhile, the match also hogged the limelight as it is learned that the Pimpri Chinchwad Police has arrested as many as 33 bookies after they were found guilty for betting on the second ODI between India and England. The Pimpri police had gotten a hint regarding a few individuals, who were involved in a betting racket, watching the match live from somewhere near the stadium as the presence of the spectators wasn’t allowed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
After receiving the information, police immediately came into the action as they quickly raided three spots near the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune and spotted a few individuals watching the game with the help of high-resolution cameras and binoculars.
