A deliberate 98 from Man of the Match Shikhar Dhawan and crucial commitments from numerous different players assisted India with taking a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series with a 66-run win in the first ODI against England in Pune. Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna had ODI debuts to remember, while KL Rahul returned to form.
Notwithstanding, various players didn’t have essential excursions in the first ODI. Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer fizzled with the bat and endured wounds, while any semblance of Tom Curran didn’t contribute in one or the other office.
Here are the 3 biggest flops from the 1st ODI between India and England.
#3 Adil Rashid (England)
Adil Rashid has had something reasonable of accomplishment against Indian captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma, even as of late as the T20I arrangement. Playing as the expert spinner in a speed hefty England XI, the leggie was relied upon to convey likewise.
In any case, Rashid had a disillusioning day in the field in Pune. He made an opportunity by constraining Dhawan into a trudge clear, just to see Moeen Ali shell a direct catch in the profound. The 33-year-old additionally saw a nearby LBW call against Dhawan turned down as the opener proceeded to make 98 invaluable runs.
Rashid completed his 9-over spell with figures of 0/66, however got the opportunity to hold tight with Tom Curran during the pursuit and give England a concise promising sign. However, he scratched off for a duck, wrapping a forgettable excursion up.
#2 Kuldeep Yadav (India)
With Yuzvendra Chahal battling to discover his heading for the country right now, Virat Kohli and the team management opted to give Kuldeep Yadav a go in the ODI format.
The left-arm wrist-spinner didn’t have an extraordinary prologue to the assault, as Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow were going all weapons bursting. However, when the residue settled, he had the chance to reimburse the trust appeared in him by the care staff.
Unfortunately, Kuldeep was effectively the most exceedingly terrible Indian bowler in plain view. He doled out gifts consistently, and never truly looked like getting a wicket. The 26-year-old’s exhibition was frightfully suggestive of his appearing in India’s 2019 World Cup experience against a similar resistance, the game which saw his association with Chahal broken forever.
Getting done with figures of 0/68 out of 9 overs, Kuldeep is obviously low on certainty and is using up all available time to intrigue.
#1 Jos Buttler (England)
Jos Buttler bats in the center request for England in ODI cricket, and on this event, he came in at No. 5 with the necessary run rate well inside his group’s scope. Endowed with the finisher’s job in the arrangement, he would’ve needed to get his eye in prior to agreeing with his stance over the end goal.
Nonetheless, Buttler wound up caught before the stumps by Shardul Thakur, and an audit couldn’t keep him from making the long stroll back to the structure for only 2. This isn’t the first occasion when that he’s been decreed out LBW to an inswinger, and he needs to resolve that crimp in his method at the most punctual.
Buttler even had a couple of overs as substitute skipper when Eoin Morgan was off the field with a split webbing, and he had no responses to the hazardous shot-production of Krunal Pandya and KL Rahul. By and large, England’s wicket-attendant will need to fail to remember this match in a rush.
