India vs England 1st ODI Match Previews
The first ODI between India and England is set to take place at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Tuesday, March 23 2021.
After an entertaining T20I series in Ahmedabad, the action shifts to Pune for three ODIs between India and England. The hosts have triumphed in both the Test and T20I series and will be looking to repeat the trick in the ODIs as well.
India Team Updates
India registered the series win in style winning the last game of the 5 match series. Although Virat Kohli and co aren’t in the best of forms in the 50-over format, they are favourites for the match. With their bowling attack also finding their feet in the T20I series, hopes are high among the Indians.
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma will probably open the inning for the India team. Both are very talented players and played many attacking innings in previous matches. Virat Kohli will bat one down, and all eyes will be on him as he has not been able to score a century since the last 35+ innings.
Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya will take care of the middle order. Krunal Pandya and Shardul Thakur will take care of the lower order. Virat Kohli will lead the India team as a Captain. He is also a good Batsman.
Lokesh Rahul will do the wicket keeping for the India team. Yuzvendra Chahal will take care of the spin bowling of the team.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natrajan and Shardul Thakur will lead the pace attack of the team.
England Team Updates
Their opponents, England, will be looking to salvage some lost pride with a strong showing in the ODIs. With the ICC T20 World Cup only a few months away, the English would want to familiarize themselves with the conditions.
There aren’t many new faces from the side that featured in the T20Is, although there might be a debut on the cards for Liam Livingstone with Joe Root unavailable for this series.
Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy will probably open the inning for the England team. Both are well-known inning openers.
Liam Livingstone can make his debut in today’s game in place of Joe Root who is not available. Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes and Jos Butler will take care of the middle order.
Eoin Morgan will lead the England team as a Captain. He is also a good Batsman. Jos Buttler will do the Wicket Keeping duty for his England team. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid will lead the spin attack of the team.
Mark Wood, Ben Stokes and Tom Curran will take care of the pace attack for his team.
