India won the first ODI against England by 10 wickets to take a crucial 1-0 lead in this three-match series. Star Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah took six wickets to topple England’s innings on just 110 runs at The Oval in London. Then the Indian captain Rohit Sharma smashed an unbeaten fifty to record an easy win.

Rohit won the toss and chose to bowl first on the green pitch at The Oval. Former skipper and key batter Virat Kohli was missing from the starting eleven due to a minor groin injury he suffered during the third T20I. Shreyas Iyer came in his place with no real surprises in the Indian setup. England, under new captain Jos Buttler, received a big boost to their batting lineup with the return of Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Jonny Bairstow.

However, Bumrah proved Rohit’s decision to bowl first a right one by bowling out Jason Roy and Joe Root in the second over of the innings. Mohammed Shami then removed Stokes in the next over with Rishabh Pant taking a brilliant one-handed catch behind the stumps. Bumrah then dismissed  Jonny Bairstow in his third over and clean bowled dangerous Liam Livingstone in his next one to leave England at 26/5 at the end of the eighth over.

Buttler remained strong at the other end and tried to build a little partnership with Moeen Ali. But youngster Prasidh Krishna removed the latter with a brilliant catch off his own bowling Shami dismissed Buttler on 30 runs in the next over to end England’s hope for a defendable total. Bumrah took two more wickets to end England’s innings on 110 runs in 25.2 overs.

India almost lost Shikhar Dhawan on the first ball as Bairstow missed an easy run-out chance. But after that, both Rohit and Dhawan took it slow and built up their gameplay with a controlled mindset. Rohit smashed his fifty in just 49 balls by hitting a big six to Brydon Carse’s short delivery. Both the players played some attacking shots in the end and chased down the target in 18.4 overs. Rohit remained unbeaten on 76 runs off 58 balls and Dhawan on 31 runs off 54 balls. Bumrah won the Player of the Match award for his terrific 6/19.

Losing captain, Jos Buttler said:

“Really tough day… But we’ve got to dust ourselves quickly for the game at Lord’s. Muggy conditions, we felt like it would swing. India exploited the conditions. In the T20s and in the powerplay, they bowled brilliantly… [Bumrah] is a great bowler to come up against. He bowled fantastically well today. It’s never easy when you are forced to take wickets… I asked bowlers to take risks to try and take wickets.”

Winning captain, Rohit Sharma said:

“Looking at the pitch and the overhead conditions, it [bowling] was the right call to make. We never really worry about the conditions… We saw during the T20s as well when the pitch was flat; we came out and did the job. Today was more suitable for the fast bowlers… When you play in conditions like that, you need to understand what kind of assistance bowlers are going to get… We know the quality of the bowlers… [Dhawan and I] have played a lot of cricket together. We understand each other well, except the first ball [when there was a run-out chance]… We know what he brings for us; very experienced player. The pull or hook is a high-risk shot, but I back myself to play that. As long as it keeps coming, I am happy!”

Player of the Match winner, Jasprit Bumrah said:

“When there is swing to offer and seam movement, it is exciting times for white-ball cricket. Very happy when there was some help for us in the beginning. When I bowled the first ball, I saw some swing… If there is no swing, you pull your length back. When the ball is doing something, you don’t have to try too much. But when the wicket is flat, your accuracy is tested. As soon as he [Shami] bowled the first over, we felt he can go fuller since there was some help. He had a discussion with me that we should go fuller. Very happy for him, but when he beats the bat, I told him there will be a day when he runs through sides! When the bowling is moving around, the slip cordon and keeper are very active. Very happy for Pant [for his catches]!”
