Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav help India beat England by 8 wickets

Share

England defeated Australia in the previous ODI series and also achieved the highest team score in ODIs when they scored 481/6 in the third ODI against Australian team.

Put into bat, England was off to a decent start as openers Jason Roy (38) and Jonny Bairstow (38) forged a 73-run partnership for the opening wicket before Kuldeep drew the first blood, dismissing the former in the 11th over.

Farbrace feels England will face another stern challenge from India in the ODI series.

Paul Farbrace, England's interim coach, has backed Joe Root to bounce back strongly after being dropped for the series-deciding T20I against India at Bristol on Sunday, but reiterated that "runs are the currency" by which all of England's batsmen need to be judged in the current clamour for white-ball berths. Losing too many wickets meant that they had to take time and rebuild the innings, with Stokes in particular scoring at a very low strike-rate. "He will be spurred on by that and he will do everything he can to make sure he is ready for Thursday s game at Trent Bridge". Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow are playing extremely positively and will be well-suited to the pitch at Trent Bridge.

Along with their batting line-up, Kuldeep Yadav and YuzvendraChahal may be the key players in deciding the outcome. Both the pair added 93 runs for the 5th wicket before Butler perished. Although the condition in England would be vastly different from South Africa, India seems to have well accustomed to it, judging by its performance in the just-concluded T20I series.
