India makes England bat in ODI opener

India makes England bat in ODI opener

England, which plundered a record 481 in Nottingham against Australia last month, struggled despite an opening stand of 73. Their last bilateral series' defeat came in India in January 2017, with only a freak one-off loss to Scotland in the interim. Ultimately it's good marker to see where we're at.

"Full credit to India - they completely outplayed us", said Morgan. "If they carry on playing him like this, he'll be playing in the Test series too because he's all over Root and Bairstow in particular". This was Kuldeep's first five-for in ODIs after he had achieved the same feat in T20Is during the Manchester encounter. He was dropped subsequently for the Bristol game but continues to be a pivotal part of the ODI set up.

"I fully understood the decision, that's part of having a really strong squad". You have to take that.

"It was tactical - we couldn't get a wicket, so I was chopping and changing trying to get a wicket, or find a wicket, trying to be as unpredictable as we could, but it didn't work", he added. "The key is when you have players in your side under pressure, the honest answer for me is your support and back your players publicly".

It was one that landed Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler with the task of the rebuild when both are probably better equipped for destruction.

"Towards the end of the New Zealand series this year we started to see Joe really getting to grips with the Test match team as a captain". "I don't have any fears about it". "Anything is possible, we still have a few days to pick the Test side".

Led by their openers, England need to keep playing the type of cricket they played against Australia, where they brought out some near-perfect performances. Whether that's making sure I get enough rest, or obviously if there are worldwide games throughout those tournaments, I'm going to have to miss out. I've proven in the past that I can perform in T20 cricket and I don't see it as a closed door for me.

Even though they lost the preceding T20 series they'll be confident and aiming to take momentum into next year's home World Cup.

Once Kohli opted to field, the English script unfolded very much on similar lines with the T20 series, where things went downhill as soon as Kuldeep was introduced into the attack. They won't want to go the way of their football side, who performed admirably at the Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation, only to be beaten 2-1 in extratime against Croatia in the semifinals.

Batsmen-friendly wickets are expected in this ODI series.

This match was at Trent Bridge, remember.

"I bowled wicket to wicket and tried to vary my pace", he said.

"India are in a place where they have some great depth in that (bowling) department".

"With a bowling machine, you can not see the hand or wrist or arm during delivery and the ball only turns", he said.

"That's the way that you'd expect all of [Virat] Kohli's teams to play, so we're going to have to play extremely well to win it".
