The first ODI between India and England at the Kennington Oval in London saw the visitors embarrass the Englishmen as their bowlers ran riot in a 10-wicket mauling. India chased down England’s lowly target of 111 in under 20 overs as Indian skipper Rohit Sharma dominated the English bowlers with a swashbuckling 76*.

The visitors were put in to bat first on a green pitch that was supposed to assist the new ball bowlers, and the Indian bowlers made full use of the conducive nature of the pitch. India’s Jasprit Bumrah was having a great day as he ran through the hosts’ top order in a fiery five-over spell that saw him scalp four wickets, conceding just nine runs. His partner in crime, Mohammed Shami, assisted him admirably and grabbed three wickets, including the prized scalp of opposition skipper Jos Buttler.

After a miserable outing with the bat that saw them record 110 runs on the board, their lowest against India, the hosts expected a fiery reply of their own as their bowlers tried the emulate the performance their counterparts did in the first innings. Reece Topley and David Willey did trouble the Indian openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikar Dhawan, earlier in the second innings, but once they got their eye in, they dissipated England’s chance of a comeback in the game, especially Rohit Sharma.

The English bowlers puzzling ploy of bowling short to the Indian skipper was met with utter disdain, as Rohit kept smashing the short deliveries over the fine leg boundary. The Indian openers registered their 18th 100-run stand and also breached the 5000-run mark for the first wicket partnerships in ODI. The good news for Buttler after that damaging defeat is that they don’t have much time to dwell on that result as his side gears up to take on the visitors in the second ODI on Thursday.

Here’s a look at the weather forecast for the ENG vs IND second ODI:

The first game at The Oval was met with some drizzle during the match, but it never threatened to interrupt the game on a cloudy day in London.
