India vs England 1st ODI: After winning the Test and T20 series, now Team India would like to maintain their winning momentum in the three-match ODI series starting today. In the Test and T20 series, Virat Sena had earlier suffered defeat in Mukabalo. But after making a strong comeback, Team India named both the series. Even in the ODI series, Team India has an upper hand.
India’s fast bowling department is strong even without Bumrah
Team India may have missed their star bowler Jasprit Bumrah in the T20 series, but in the ODI series, Virat Sena will not face any problem in the bowling department. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the lead bowler in the ODI series. At the same time, Shardul Thakur will be the second fast bowler to perform brilliantly in ODI series against Australia and recently in T20 series against England. Apart from this, the best young bowlers like Mohammad Siraj, T Natarajan and famous Krishna are also present in the team.
Krunal Pandya may get a chance to debut
Star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja of Indian team is also not part of Team India in ODI series. Akshar Patel had his shortcomings in the Tests and T20 series, but he has not been included in the team in the ODI series. In such a situation, captain Virat Kohli can give an opportunity to debutant Krunal Pandya in the first ODI. Krunal is a player of Jadeja’s style to a large extent.
Krunal, who has played 18 T-2-International matches for India, has been included in the ODI team given his current form. Krunal had scored two centuries and two half-centuries in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy. Apart from this, his performance in bowling was also good. In such a situation, it is almost certain to debut in the first ODI today.
England is the current world champion
England are the defending world champions, but things are not much better for them. Fast bowler Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the ODI series due to injury and he will not be part of Rajasthan Royals team in the initial matches of IPL 2021.
Apart from this, fast bowler Mark Wood who did well in the first few T20 matches, but he proved to be expensive in the last few matches. It will be a challenge for both teams to play in a new environment. Because India and England have played in only two cities so far. He spent three weeks in Chennai for the first two Tests while spending about a month in Ahmedabad, where he played two Tests and five T20s. Now all three ODIs will be played at Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune.
