Here, we wrap-up or live coverage tonight. Do join us for 2nd ODI to be played at Lord's.
Moeen Ali now; will India wrap-up here? A very-very WIDE! delivery on the first ball. KL Rahul looks to step out and hit it over the ropes, but fails to connect; however, India take a single and eventually win the first ODI!
England are trying all options here. Joe Root to bowl here. A couple of dot balls. Two runs on the next ball. Root bowls a wide delivery, leg-side; India get 5 BYE! runs. England team is all deflated here. A couple of singles to end the over.
Rashid Ali is back. A couple of singles is followed by a couple of runs on the next ball. Rohit hits a pull shot for FOUR! towards the midwicket boundary. A single and a dot, to end the over.
Willey to bowl. Another quiet over as India score only 3 runs in the over. India needs 20 runs from 72 balls remaining.
Both, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are calmly taking India to victory here, by dealing in ones and twos. However, Rohit hit a couple of FOURs! against Rashid in consecutive overs.
David Willey is back. A couple of dot balls is followed by a couple of singles. Another dot ball in the over. A dot ball played by Rohit to end the over.
Rashid continues. Only two runs of the first five balls. Kohli is STUMPED OUT! on the next ball, as he fails to bring his foot back in the crease, Buttler does the rest. KL Rahul is the new man in. FOW: 226/2 | Virat Kohli: 75 (82).
This is the first time Kohli has got out STUMPED! in ODIs. England get a wicket, finally; perhaps, too late in the day? Or is there any twist in the tale?
Moeen continues England's ordeal. Three runs on the first five balls and a SIX! on the last ball by Rohit Sharma. He steps out of the crease and hits it at his will over the mid-off boundary.
Rashid is here. A couple of singles on the first three balls. Rohit hits a huge SIX! this time over the bowler's head. Ro-HITMAN-Sharma brings up his CENTURY! here. A couple of dots to end the over.
India will compete against England in the 1st One Day International (ODI) match at Trent Bridge, in Nottingham, on Thursday, i.e. July 12. The five-match ODI series will see the Top 2 ranked ODI teams in the world clash against each other to establish their supremacy. After registering a convincing win in the recently concluded Twenty20 (T20) series against England, by 2-1, the Indian team would be looking to carry forward their momentum in the ODI series too.
However, the choice of the playing XI will be a dilemma for skipper Virat Kohli who would be making some tough decisions. Both, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma struck from in the T20 series, and Suresh Raina is excellent nick too. Dinesh Karthik is in red-hot-form also. For India, it will be the matter of whom to rest, rather than whom to play!
As for England, the team would be looking forward to bring their campaign on track after a series loss. Given the form they are in, it won’t be tough for the hosts to bounce back against the Indian team. You can catch free live telecast and online streaming details of IND vs ENG 1st ODI match here.
