India vs England 1st ODI at Nottingham

India vs England 1st ODI at Nottingham

Virat Kohli and his team are in England for a long tour, after the three-match T20I series, they are playing as many ODIs and then will play a five-match Test series.

While India will be buoyed by their 2-1 T20 series win, England, the top-ranked ODI team in world cricket, come into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement. The Men-in-Blue and the English team have faced each other in an ODI series in India previous year when the hosts were victorious by 2-1.

After an impressive T20 International (T20I) series win, India will eye another dominant performance against England when both teams lock horns for the 1 One Day International (ODI) match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham today.

While the football heroes went down in a blaze of glory in Russian Federation, fighting till the final whistle against Croatia, it was abject surrender by their cricketers at their bastion, Trent Bridge, in the opening One-day global. "He will be spurred on by that and he will do everything he can to make sure he is ready for Thursday's game at Trent Bridge". Moreover, the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings is also at stake with England now in top spot with India close behind in second.

While there is a trophy on the line, the series is being seen as the curtain-raiser for the World Cup in England next year.

Mark Wood's nought for 55 from six overs was costly after Eoin Morgan's side had failed to post a competitive total.

"It's a big day for me", Kuldeep, whose return was also the best by any spinner against England in ODI cricket, told Sky Sports.

Man With World's Longest Fingernails Finally Cuts Them After 66 Years
Well, this is Shridhar Chillal - and he has been growing the fingernails on his left hand for a massive 66 YEARS. The 14-year-old then chose to take up a challenge to see how long he could go without trimming his nails.

England's rapid rise since the ruins of the 2015 World Cup has been built on the strength of their batting and expect the conditions in Nottingham to provide yet another run-fest.

For India, the make-up of their playing XI will be their main concern.

England had made a decent enough start when Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy put on 73 but once Kuldeep was brought on for the 11th over this was a different game, in sharp contrast to that record-breaking one here last month.

Rahul scored a 70 against Ireland and followed it by an unbeaten 101 against England in the first T20. He along with Yuzvendra Chahal have managed the middle overs with so much authority.

Buttler was still able to complete a 45-ball fifty, albeit with just five fours, including a stylish cover-drive off Umesh. He is a fantastic player in all forms of the game.

After Kuldeep again exposed England players' limitations against spin bowling to bundle them out for 268, Rohit Sharma lit up the arena with a stroke-filled 137 (114 balls; 15 fours, 4 sixes).

Not only that, Dhoni will also become only the second wicketkeeper-batsman to score 10000 runs.
