commentary

India have crusaded through the first ODI. Not too many pundits saw this coming. A mismatch like the first T20I. The next stop is at Lord's. Only a day of rest for both the teams but plenty of it for our team. This is Kumar Abhisekh Das signing off on behalf of MS Ramakrishnan, Akshay Maanay, Hariprasad, Sriram and the ever smiling Shashikant Singh!

Kuldeep Yadav, Man of the Match: For me it is a big day. I started off well in the first few overs. Luckily I got a couple of wickets in the first two overs. For me it does not matter if the ground is small. Initially I thought there was a lot of turn and after the first over, I knew I was in the game. If you are bowling in the right areas and you are using the variations perfectly, then it is pretty hard for the batsman. I know they will come back hard at us in the next game. I am hoping for a Test call.

(2/2) Anything is possible with the selections for Tests and there might be a few surprises. Kuldeep is making a strong case for himself and so is Chahal. And looking at the way, the English batsmen have struggled against them, we might be tempted to do it. But the focus now is winning the next two games. Especially the next game looking at it from the series perspective. The weather has been lovely. It has been very welcoming. The crowd support has been brilliant. The tour is really long and there is some tough cricket ahead of us which we are looking forward to.

Virat Kohli: (1/2) As clinical as it can be. We knew it was a good wicket to play on. Those wrist spinners in the middle overs are going to be tricky. Given more overs and more time in the middle, they become even more lethal. When guys are not going hard at them, they have 10 overs and they know they have something to comeback and have the skill to do it. Kuldeep was outstanding. To give away 25 runs and pick up 6 wickets on that kind of a wicket, I don't think I have seen a better spell of bowling in ODIs of late. After that, Rohit batting very long and finishing the game for us. We made a tactical decision (at Bristol) looking at the dimensions of the ground and the breeze flowing into the shorter boundary. When it comes to longer game, you need players to make an impact. These two wrist spinners have been making the difference since they have come in. They did it in South Africa in the middle overs. They remain as our key weapons.

Eoin Morgan: Certainly not our best day out here. Full credit to India as they completely outplayed us. Kuldeep had a very good day at the office. Playing spin against India is one challenge that hopefully we will keep improving upon. But today we were well off the mark. I think both the games there has been more turn than on the grounds that we have played on and that is one thing probably that we have identified. I think Lord's will be different as it won't offer a great deal of turn. But certainly he (Kuldeep) extracted more turn out of this than any other spinner. We need to improve as a side. The seamers on this wicket come on to the bat on this wicket and hence the high scoring nature of the ground. We need to expose our areas of weakness before the WC and this seems to be one of them. And because it is a rare chance to be coming up against two wrist spinners. During the winter, we tour to West Indies and Sri Lanka and this will be good practice for those series.

- England pacers failing to take a wicket in a home ODI (overs) - only the third time it has happened:
27.2 vs SL, Durham, 2006
24.0 vs SL, Leeds, 2006
21.0 vs Ind, Trent Bridge, 2018*

- Second biggest win for India against England in England in terms of balls to spare. Only bigger win came by 117 balls in Edgbaston in 2014 (Target 207).

Most wins after 50 ODIs as captain:
39 C Lloyd/ R Ponting/ V KOHLI
37 H Cronje
36 V Richards
34 S Pollcok
33 Wasim Akram/ Waqar Younis

- Rohit Sharma's 137* is now the highest score by an Indian batsman vs England in England in ODIs. PRE: 107 by Kohli, Cardiff, 2011.

13th July, 2002. Almost 16 years back, India scripted a famous win at Lord's to announce the world that they won't crumble under a chase. And now you see the results. After restricting the hosts for only 268, India have just had a walk in the park to topple it down. 39 wins out of 50 ODIs for Kohli as captain. India continue to be ruthless. A six-for which brought about a hell lot of records also brought down an English batting line up which has been tormenting bowlers for fun. But the script was reversed. India set about their chase with Dhawan being the boundary merchant before he ran down the track, looked to play a swipe and top-edged it for him to pave way for India's number 3. After a lot of hullabaloo it was Kohli who came out and India had the chase under control. Rohit Sharma brought up his 18th ODI ton with his second successive century on the tour. Kohli did get out stumped, 7 years since it last happened, to Rashid. But by then India needed a dawdle and they did it with elan.

Still 30 more needed. India have slowed down a bit after the fall of Kohli as Rahul is playing himself in. An unprecedented break. I got it wrong then. Now they are taking drinks and did not take it after Kohli's wicket. Even 350 would have been dwarfed by this phenomenal chase. India have hardly broken a sweat so far.

Adil Rashid to Kohli, out Stumped!! Kohli is gone. Has not finished a run-chase. That is news. But a lovely delivery traps him. The flighted ball outside off lured him to a drive but the ball spun past his outside edge. The batsman had his back foot lurking outside his crease and the keeper did the rest. Kohli decided to walk and did not wait for third umpire's decision. Goes off amidst standing ovation from the crowd. Kohli st Buttler b Adil Rashid 75(82) [4s-7]

31.6

Moeen Ali to Rohit, SIX, it might take two to tango but it takes one hand for Rohit to lift a six over long-off. The small boundaries do help though. Flighted ball, the batsman obliged by coming down and then just lifted the ball away to get a maximum

28.5

Plunkett to Kohli, FOUR, it is pious! He steps on to the front foot, melliflous transfer of weight, ball meets the bat right under the eyes and then a mere extension of push. Genius. Cover drives and Kohli. No more adjectives remain

28.3

28.1
0
Plunkett to Rohit, no run, dropped! Tough one-handed chance to his right and the ball popped out. That was slighty short and the batsman threw his willow at that. The ball never got in properly and before his elbows landed on the ground, the ball was out
27.6
2
Moeen Ali to Kohli, 2 runs, the gardener in him is plucking runs. That was well outside off and the batsman just opened the bat face on impact. Before the man at short third could cut it off, they amble back for a double

27.2
6
Moeen Ali to Rohit, SIX, tango down the track, the flighted ball is music to him and then in sync with the rhythm, swipes it across the line over cow corner for a maximum. Easy peasy

25.6
4
Moeen Ali to Kohli, FOUR, small margins. Cricket is a game of small margins. Moeen Ali was bowling on and around off, this though was just outside off and that was enough for Kohli to use the pace on the ball and steer it to third man, played it fine so that short third man does not stop it

Mark Wood to Rohit, FOUR, cannot bowl short and around the tummy region to Rohit, it should be near chest or above it to trouble him. He picked the length early and pulled it with utter disdain backward of square leg - bisecting fine leg and deep square leg

24.1
4
Mark Wood to Kohli, FOUR, fifty for Kohli. Reaches the milestone with a typical Kohli cover drive. He has a smile on his face as he is greeted by Rohit. Waves his bat around to the crowd and to the dressing room. First on tour for the Indian skipper. On a length and outside off, Kohli creams it on the up through extra cover. Sweeper had no chance of getting across. That was sweetly timed

Mark Wood [5.0-0-40-0] is back into the attack

22.5
4
Adil Rashid to Rohit, FOUR, in the air and clears mid-on comfortably. Looked like a mishit but even Rohit's mishits are enough to evade the fielders. Flighted full delivery and Rohit wanted to capitalize on mid-on being inside the ring, goes through with the shot and cue-ends it over Root. Couple of bounces and into the fence
22.4
2
Adil Rashid to Rohit, 2 runs, straying down leg and Rohit helps it along the way with a cross-batted shot, does not have the pace to fetch him four. Wood gives chase and makes a dent into the ground as he hauls the ball in

21.4
4
Stokes to Rohit, FOUR, fifty for Rohit. He has just carried on from Bristol. First he allowed Dhawan to take on the bowling before getting into his groove. Now that he is set, he will look to bat through. Short and outside off, Rohit reaches out and cuts it past a diving backward point fielder. The fast outfield does the rest. Raises the bat to all corners
21.3
1
Stokes to Kohli, 1 run, very full and outside off, Kohli drives to sweeper cover, for a single
21.2
0
Stokes to Kohli, no run, Kohli is getting a bit frustrated. Runs are not coming easily in the last few overs. He tries to manufacture something and fails. Not short enough to play the pull and he still goes through with it, mistimed completely to mid-on

Moeen Ali to Dhawan, out Caught by Adil Rashid!! Ali draws first blood for England! More of a poor stroke from Dhawan than a good ball but England will take it. They were desperate for the breakthrough and have got it. Floated up generously around off, Dhawan danced down the track to go big across the line but could only manage a slice towards backward point. Rashid trekked backwards to his right and pouched it with ease. A breezy start from Dhawan ends, he'll be gutted to have thrown away this start. Dhawan c Adil Rashid b Moeen Ali 40(27) [4s-8]

Moeen Ali to Dhawan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Mark Wood to Rohit, SIX, vintage Rohit Sharma! These are the kind of shots that define the man - pure class! Overpitched delivery outside off, any other batsman would have gone hard at the ball but not Rohit. Just gets forward and extends the drive into a loft.
