In the India vs England 1st One Day International (ODI) match, India scored 317 for 5 after England invited India to bat first at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune today. Shikhar Dhawan delivered under pressure with a solid 98 before Krunal Pandya smashed the fastest fifty by a debutant to power India to over 300 runs.
After Dhawan and Virat Kohli (56 off 60) shared 105 runs for the second wicket, Krunal (58 not out off 31) and K L Rahul (62 not out off 43) sent England on a leather hunt with their unbeaten 112-run stand off 57 balls.
Dhawan hammered 11 fours and two sixes in his 106-ball knock while Krunal plundered seven fours and two maximums in his entertaining innings.
Rahul also got welcome runs after a lean run in the T20 series.
For England, all-rounder Ben Stokes picked up three wickets, while Mark Wood snared two.
