England skipper Eoin Morgan has won the toss and chosen to bowl first in the 1st IND vs ENG ODI. The match takes place at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune and is set to begin at 1:30 PM IST.
As confirmed by Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will open for the hosts. Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna will make their India debuts and it will be interesting to see how the duo fare against England. KL Rahul has been chosen ahead of Rishabh Pant as the wicket-keeper for the IND vs ENG ODI.
England have made a few changes to their T20I playing eleven. Tom Curran and Sam Billings will now be a part of the line-up. Moeen Ali too will make his first appearance of the white-ball series.
India come into the series high on confidence, having won the Test and the T20I assignments. Virat Kohli’s men will target another series win to wrap up the tour. A win in the first IND vs ENG ODI will set them up perfectly for the rest of the series.
England are the No. 1 ODI side in the world and will look to end the tour on a high after agonizingly losing the T20I series 3-2.
