India vs England 1st ODI: Statistical preview

Did you know?




MS Dhoni needs only 33 runs to reach the 10,000-run mark!

| Updated : July 11, 2018 10:35 AM IST

India had suffered a setback when they had to go into the T20 International series against England without Jasprit Bumrah. However, Hardik Pandya rose to the challenge, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma got hundreds, Virat Kohli was as consistent as ever, and Kuldeep Yadav won a match on his own. In the end India clinched the series 2-1, a fair outcome given the performances of the sides. The sides will now move on to Trent Bridge for the ODIs. Before the series begins, here is a statistical preview of the first ODI:

96 matches between England and India, joint-2nd most for England against any side. England have also played West Indies 96 times — a count far behind the 147 they have played against Australia. India, on the other hand, have played over 100 ODIs against Sri Lanka (158), Pakistan (129), Australia (128), West Indies (121), and New Zealand (101).

1.333 India’s win-loss ratio against England (52 wins, 39 defeats), their 2nd-best against any side against whom they have 75 or more ODIs. They have a ratio of 1.607 against Sri Lanka. However, they have beaten England 15 times and lost 19 times on English soil.

0.789 England’s win-loss ratio against India, their worst against any side irrespective of number of matches played.

49 ODIs for Virat Kohli as captain. He will become the 7th to lead India in 50 ODIs, after MS Dhoni (199), Mohammad Azharuddin (174), Sourav Ganguly (146), Rahul Dravid (79), Kapil Dev (74), and Sachin Tendulkar (73). However, with a 10-ODI tenure, no Indian captain comes remotely close to Kohli’s win-loss ratio of 3.8. In fact, with a 30-ODI cut-off, only Clive Lloyd (3.555) and Ricky Ponting (3.235) have hit the 3-mark.

33 runs needed by MS Dhoni to reach the 10,000-run mark. Dhoni will become the 4th Indian (after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and Rahul Dravid) and 12th overall to the milestone.

99 runs needed by Dhoni (1,425) to become the highest scorer in India-England matches. The record is currently held by Yuvraj Singh (1,523), while Sachin Tendulkar (1,455) is also ahead of Dhoni. The highest run-getter for England is Ian Bell (1,163). However, of members in current squads, Joe Root’s 468 is the most by an Englishman.

10 wickets for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the most in India-England matches among players in the squads. Liam Plunkett and Ben Stokes have 9 each. This is surprising, given that six men have taken 35 or more wickets, but then, the bowling attack of both sides have been revamped of late.

5 wickets needed by Akshar Patel to reach the 50-wicket mark. Akshar will become the 35th Indian and 300th overall to the milestone.

144 runs needed by Jonny Bairstow to reach the 2,000-run mark. Bairstow will become the 27th England cricketer and 213rd overall to the milestone.

1 uncapped players in the Indian side — Deepak Chahar. If he plays he will become the 221st ODI cricketer for India.

Live Cricket Score – England vs India, 1st ODI, Nottingham

That’s all from us folks! Hope you enjoyed India’s cracking win. Until next time then .

Eoin Morgan: Certainly not our best day. All credit to India. Kuldeep had a field day. I think both the games there has been more turn than on the grounds that we have played on. I think Lords will be different. We need to improve as a side. The seamers on this wicket come on to the bat nicely. we need to expose our areas of weakness before the WC.

Virat Kohli: As clinical as it can be. We knew it was a good wicket to bat on. Those wrist spinners in the middle overs are going to be tricky. Kuldeep was outstanding. I don’t think I have seen a better spell in ODIs of late. We made a tactical decision looking at the dimesions of the ground. These two wrist spinners have been making the difference since they have come in. They did it in South Africa. Anything is possible with the selections for Tests. The focus now is winning on the next two games. Especially the next game as the series is on the line. The weather has been lovely. The crowd support has been excellent. The tour is really long and we need to keep doing well.

Kuldeep Yadav – Man of the Match: For me it is a big day. I started off well in the first few overs. Luckily I got a couple of wickets in the first two overs. For me it does not matter if the ground is small. Initially, I thought there was a lot of turn and after the first over, I knew I was in the game. If you are bowling in the right areas and you are using the variations perfectly, then it is pretty hard for the batsmen. I hope they will come back hard at us in the next game. I am hoping for a Test call.

Only the third instance of England pacers failing to take a wicket in a home ODI (in 21 overs).

The other two instances of it happening was in the series against SL in 2006 – 27.2 overs in Chester-le-Street & 24.0 overs in Leeds. #ENGvIND

THAT’S THAT – INDIA WIN BY EIGHT WICKETS

A solid start, troubled by quality spinners and then by Rohit Sharma – a familiar script unfolded at Trent Bridge as England slipped to an embarrassing loss. Kuldeep Yadav picked up 6 for 25 – the fourth-best figures by an Indian bowler in ODI cricket – to keep the hosts to a well below par score of 268 all out.

Once the bowlers did their job, it became all too routine for the chaser supreme India captain and his inform deputy. Rohit (137 not out) and Kohli (75) collaborated for a 167-run stand, after a brisk start, to ensure it was a smooth sail before they polished off the challenge in 41st overs. The win, however, was set up by Kuldeep, who schooled England in their own backyard on one of the flattest track in the country.

Make no mistake, it was a poor performance from the hosts. With the outfield laid to put a billiards table to shame, the boundaries short enough to give the bowlers nightmares and a flat pitch on offer, both teams arrived at the venue hoping for a run fest. Kuldeep’s spell though raised some tough questions for Eoin Morgan and his batch of 2018 and their ability to play spin. There wasn’t a lot of turn, just a wee bit, but enough for England batsmen to lose the plot completely.

When they made a brisk start with the openers scoring 73 inside the powerplay, Kohli’s decision to stick England in looked an iffy one. After, at the same venue, England had smashed Australia for 481 – the highest score in ODI cricket – just last month. But walloping Ashton Agar to all parts of the ground is all too easy but then trying to tackle the guile, control and variations of Kuldeep is a whole different ball game altogether.

Kuldeep drew first blood as he dismissed Roy in the 11th over. The England opener tried to reverse sweep the ball but was beaten in the air and could only manage to lob it to point. Joe Root, keen to prove a point after being dropped from the T20 side, looked clueless and troubled during his short stay before he was trapped in front trying to defend a Kuldeep stock delivery on the backfoot. Bairstow suffered the same fate as England’s Test captain after he failed to read the googly from the left-arm spinner. At 82 for 3, England were wobbling and in a lot of trouble on a good surface.

They were dented further soon after when Eoin Morgan chipped a Chahal delivery to midwicket in the 19th over. Jos Buttler walked in and immediately gave the innings the much-needed impetus even as Stokes continued to struggle from the other end. Stokes and Buttler raised a half-century stand off 59 deliveries with the latter doing most of the damage. Buttler looked at ease and cantered to his half-century off 45 balls before eventually falling to Kuldeep. Stokes became Kuldeep’s fifth victim before David Willey gifter his wicket away to the left-arm spinner.

In the chase, Shikhar Dhawan looked set for a big score. Mark Wood took the brunt as the left-hander raced to 40 off 27 before throwing away his wicket. If that wicket gave Morgan and Co. some hope, all it took was one stroke from Rohit to show which team was bossing the game.

Picture this, the bowler is on the ground having delivered it at more than 145 clicks. All the India opener did was stand tall and cream it over the long-off fence for a six. Those were ominous signs. Add to that Kohli starting his innings with his famed fluent cover drive and it was all too clear too early – England stood no chance especially with track offering nothing to their bowlers.

Liam Plunkett, Wood, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali – all were put in place at various stages in the chase with India motoring in the chase. As India raced towards the target, it also became a bit about personal milestones. Rohit got to his 18th ODI ton in the 31st over – off 82 deliveries – with a nonchalant six off Rashid. Kohli eventually fell – stumped trying to drive Rashid – with India 43 shy of the target but the wicket came at a time when it didn’t matter.

TWO DOWN: Kohli gets stumped and doesn’t even bother to wait. Tossed up and he missed the drive and failed to get back. He falls for 75 off 82 to help India cruise.

India 226 for 2.

Only time they missed out was when they only had 119 to chase down against SA in the 2nd ODI of the series in Centurion. #ENGvIND

— Deepu Narayanan (@deeputalks) July 12, 2018

18TH ODI TON FOR ROHIT: A innings that has been very fluent but it’s been all too easy as well for him. Nothing in the track and nothing in the English bowling as well. Gets there off 82 balls.

India 215 for 1 and need just 54 more.

200 UP: It’s taken India just 29 overs to get there. Rohit has just been dropped at point by Roy.

The Virat Kohli cover drive is a thing of such joy.

India 159 for 1

50 FOR ROHIT: So after the magnificent ton in the final T20I, Rohit has now notched up a half-century in the first ODI. England players, looks like, have already given up. Poor body language from them.

India 140 for 1 in 22 overs.

20 overs done. India 128 for 1 .

Can we have Australia back please .

— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) July 12, 2018

India’s 100 up in the 15th over. Just one wicket down so far. Kohli and Rohit looking at ease.

@AkashS08 Atleast one thing is clear that Virat will bat at no:3 in Odi for sure and he has done superb job for india from long time, so Rahul have to adjust himself at no: 4 and make the perfect spot for worldcup keep in mind.

— Rattan Kumar (@rattanthakur102) July 12, 2018

End of powerplay – India 74 for 1

FIRST ONE DOWN: Moeen Ali gets the first wicket and Dhawan has thrown away a good start. Came down the track and wanted to play it to the on side. Gets a leading edge and is caught at backward point.

Kohli out to bat at No. 3.

England 59 for 1 in 8 overs.

50 up for India in 6.5 overs .

SOLID START: Dhawan making good use of the placid track. India have raced off the blocks in chase of 269. Not much happening for the England bowlers.

India 37 for no loss after five overs.

Rohit and Dhawan out to open, Wood will start with the ball. Excited about the chase?

Kuldeep Yadav bowled 10 overs without conceding a boundary at a venue where the last two totals by England were 481 and 444. What a bowler. #EngvInd

— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) July 12, 2018

END OF INNINGS – ENGLAND 268 all out

Kuldeep Yadav picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in One-Day International cricket to derail England at the run-filled Trent Bridge. Jos Buttler stroked a fine half-century but with others struggling, England fell way short of replicating the mayhem they created against Australia when an ODI was last played in Nottingham.

With the outfield laid to put a billiards table to shame, the boundaries short enough to give the bowlers nightmares and a flat pitch on offer, both teams arrived at the venue hoping for a run fest. As things panned out, India’s wrist spinners dominated proceedings to put England’s struggles against quality spinners under the spotlight.

If the misery of watching the Three Lions getting knocked out of the FIFA World Cup semifinal wasn’t enough, Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal collaborated to scratch the wounds left on the batting line-up after the T20I series loss. The England think-tank had already decided to drop Alex Hales despite the batsman averaging 88.2 at the venue to accommodate Ben Stokes. The decision became a lot easier after Hales injured his side and was rushed for scans. Stokes, however, failed to repay the faith bestowed on him with an uncharacteristic innings that pulled the team down even further.

England openers – Jonny Bairstow (38) and Jason Roy (38) – gave the team a solid start after they were put in. While India were exceptional in the first five overs, despite missing three chances, both Roy and Bairstow made up for a cautious start and stitched a 73-run stand inside the powerplay. But it became quite clear pretty early that walloping Ashton Agar to all parts of the venue on their way to 481 – the highest score in ODIs – wasn’t the best of preparation to face the India spinners.

Kuldeep drew first blood as he dismissed Roy in the 11th over. The England opener tried to reverse sweep the ball but was beaten in the air and could only manage to lob it to point. Joe Root, keen to prove a point after being dropped from the T20 side, looked clueless and troubled during his short stay before he was trapped in front trying to defend a Kuldeep stock delivery on the backfoot. Bairstow suffered the same fate as England’s Test captain after he failed to read the googly from the left-arm spinner. At 82 for 3, England were wobbling and in a lot of trouble on a batting beauty.

They were dent further soon after when Eoin Morgan chipped a Chahal delivery to midwicket in the 19th over. Jos Buttler walked and immediately gave the innings the much-needed impetus even as Stokes continued to struggle from the other end. Make no mistake, the Indian spinners extracted just a hint of turn and that was enough to derail the England batting.

Stokes and Buttler raised a half-century stand off 59 deliveries with the latter doing most of the damage. Buttler looked at ease and cantered to his half-century off 45 balls before eventually falling to Kuldeep. Trying to flick a delivery on the pads, he played to a tad too fine before MS Dhoni managed to gobble that one without much fuss.

Stokes grinded and grinded but failed to find a way to tackle the spin challenge. While he did dig in and held one end up, his strike rate meant the pressure continued to mount. As it turned out, Stokes’s efforts were futile as the final flourish he was looking for never arrived. He fell soon after getting to his half-century to give Kuldeep Yadav his five-wicket haul. David Willey, probably frustrated by how the batsmen had performed, gifted his wicket to the left-arm spinner his sixth wicket as Kuldeep ended with 10-0-25-6 – the fourth-best figures for an Indian in ODI cricket.

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 12, 2018

KULDEEP YADAV – 10 – 0 -25 – 6. WOW!

FIVE-FOR FOR KULDEEP: His maiden five-wicket haul. Stokes had just reached his half-century off 102 deliveries and wanted to reverse sweep the spinner to the boundary. Swept it straight to backward point.

England 214 for 6.

WICKET: Kuldeep has struck again. His fourth in the game and all five England wickets have fallen spinners. Tossed up and spinning in to Buttler. Takes the edge and a pretty good catch from Dhoni down the leg side. These are also the best figures by a left-arm wrist spinner in England going past Brad Hogg’s 3 for 29.

England 198 for 5 in 39 overs

A 45-ball fifty for Jos Buttler

We’ll leave you with just this

Last six ODI innings: 9, 91*, 11, 54*, 110*, 50* (last)

Buttler going from strength to strength

That drive past mid-off off Umesh in the 34th over is a treat for the sore eyes. “He’s conditioned himself to hit that gap time and time again,” says Atherton on air. This partnership is slowly pushing the game back into parity. England’s hopes of a 320+ score depends on them. India have both Umesh and Kaul in the attack now.

50-run stand: Buttler and Stokes have put the innings back on track with half-century partnership off 59 deliveries.

ENGLAND 158 for 4 in 30 overs.

ENGLAND 157 for 4.

25 overs done – England 134 for 4. Buttler giving the innings the much-needed impetus while Stokes is struggling at the other end.

BEN STOKES batting on 13 off 39 deliveries at the moment!

In ODI cricket, Kuldeep Yadav has an average of 5.61 with his googly.

Thats not bad right?

STATSBUZZ – Morgan against India in England in ODIs: 33(30), 28(45), 10(18), 32(58), 14(34) and 19(20).

Noticeable that India’s two wrist-spinners are getting lots of drift today as well as some turn. Proving to be a potent combination #ENGvIND

— Rob Johnston (@RobJ_Cricket) July 12, 2018

It is a good day for wrist spin. Again.

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 12, 2018

FOUR DOWN: Chahal joins the party. England are getting schooled here. Tossed up and chipped to midwicket. Soft dismissal this. England’s top four have fallen to India‘s spinners. Buttler walks out to bat now.

England 105 for 4.

Back to back boundaries for Morgan against Hardik and England are past the 100-run mark in the 19th over.

First 5 overs, Eng 26/0, scored 45/0 in the next 5 and 12/3 in the next 5.

England looking clueless against Kuldeep once more. The value of unorthodox spin.

— Lawrence Booth (@the_topspin) July 12, 2018

ENGLAND WOBBLING: Kuldeep has turned the game on its head. He traps Bairstow in front now. Tossed up and it was the googly. The England opener didn’t pick it and the ball beat the outside edge of the bat. India went for the review and the ball was crashing into the off stump.

England 82 for 3.

@AkashS08 Third one in second over. England are being troubled by Indian wrist spinners in the very same ground which featured the highest ever ODI score

— Nikhil J (@NikhilJ1425) July 12, 2018

ROOT GONE: Lovely bit of bowling from Kuldeep. He has now trapped Root in front. The umpire had no hesitation in giving that out. Tossed up outside off and spins back in, Root goes on the backfoot to defend it. Doesn’t connect and now has to walk back.

England 81 for 2

WICKET: Big wicket for India. Kuldeep has Roy caught at point. He wanted to reverse sweep the ball and was beaten by the flight and then the dip. Doesn’t connect well and an easy catch for Umesh.

England 73 for 1.

POWERPLAY DONE – England 70 for no loss .

50 UP: And just when we thought India were doing well, England openers have helped the team race past 50 in the eighth over. Spin now – Chahal to bowl – in the ninth over.

@AkashS08 very slow start from England given conditions of pitch n boundary distance

— Sachin Potalwad (@PotalwadSachin) July 12, 2018

STATSBUZZ – England openers have put together 1000+ p’ship runs in 2018 from just 17 inngs – fourth time they have did so in a calendar year in ODIs after 1987, 2011 & 2015.

GOOD START: Exceptional start this actually from the Indian bowlers. They’ve kept both Bairstow and Roy quiet in the first five overs. India have, however, missed three opportunities so far. On the first delivery of the match, Umesh got Roy to outside edge a delivery but there was no slip. The missed a review opportunity before Umesh dropped a return catch from Roy. Despite that, both England openers are struggling to get away and race off the blocks. Special mention to Kaul as well. He’s making his debut but hasn’t tried to go for glory. Has kept it simple to ensure the pressure keeps building.

England 26 for no loss.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY: Umesh trapped Bairstow on the last ball of the first over. The ball came back in and hit the back pad. Kohli thought about going for a review but decided against it. Replays show the ball would have crashed into the leg stump. Bairstow survives.

Alrighty then, Bairstow and Roy out to bat. Umesh Yadav to start with the ball for India. We are all set for this cracker. Are you?

He’s seventh to do so after Dhoni, Azhar, Ganguly, Dravid, Kapil & Tendulkar.

The sun out now and we are just eight minutes away from toss. Where should KL Rahul bat? No. 3? or No. 4?

DEBUT – Looks like Bhuvneshwar hasn’t recovered from his stiff back. Our man at the venue, Prakash, has spotted Kaul being handed his ODI cap.

The last time an ODI was played at this venue, England hammered Australia in a one-sided contest and went on to post the highest score in ODIs – 481. Both teams will hope it isn’t a run fest and bowlers will have some say in the contest.

ICYMI – Joe Root acknowledged getting dropped from the T20I side was a shocker for him. He’s now keen to do well in the ODI series and prove a point.

SQUAD UPDATES – Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not a certain starter for the contest and will undergo a fitness test ahead of the clash. England have been jolted as they’ve lost Alex Hales to a side injury. Dawid Malan called in as cover.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the first ODI between England and India at Trent Bridge. The Three Lions have been knocked out of the FIFA World Cup and the mood is expected to be sombre. The cricket players, though, have a job to do ahead of their especially after the 1-2 series loss in the preceding T20I series.

The upcoming series is a vital tuning-up exercise for both India and England ahead of next summer’s cricket World Cup in this country. There is little to choose between the two teams right now. England, ranked top of the ODI rankings, have won ten of their last 12 bilateral series while India have won their last nine. Eight of the top 20 batsmen in the ICC’s rankings will be on show and despite India and England being without their best one-day seamers in Jasprit Bumrah and Chris Woakes, there is enough quality on show with the ball too.

ind vs sri

The left-handed opener struck 119 as England replied to Sri Lanka’s 317 for six but the chase petered out once he was dismissed in the 30th over.

Half-centuries from openers Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kusal Perera and some lusty hitting at the end of the innings set up Sri Lanka‘s innings.

Put in to bat after a rain-delayed start, they built on an opening stand of 120 from Dilshan (88) and Perera (59) to set England a challenging target.

Moeen (119) then made full use of a run of luck to give the visitors a lightning start with his maiden one-day international hundred coming off 72 deliveries.

The left-hander, who scored England’s second fastest half-century in just 25 balls, batted with ease and sublime timing and his 87-ball knock was studded with 11 fours and five sixes.

The 27-year-old was lucky too. On seven the ball found the edge of his bat and rolled on to the stumps but failed to dislodge the bails while he was also dropped twice later — on 72 and 89.

He was finally out offering a tame return catch to leg spinner Jeevan Mendis and his efforts were ultimately in vain despite England apparently cruising at one stage, reaching 107 for one in 15 overs.

Ian Bell, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan all fell quickly and although a superior scoring rate kept England interested, regular wickets proved to be their undoing.

Ravi Bopara staged a lone battle at the end with four boundaries and two sixes in his 62-ball 65 but was the last man to fall as England were all out for 292 with 17 balls to spare.

Thisara Perera was the most successful bowler for Sri Lanka with three wickets for 44 runs. Ajantha Mendis and Rangana Herath picked up two wickets apiece.
