India vs England, 1st ODI , at 5 pm IST. 12 July at Trent Bridge, Nottingham

Recommended Posts

Riding on an impressive Twenty20 International series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in the three-match One-day International series, which begins at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday.

 

With the 50-over World Cup scheduled to be held in the UK next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a fair idea of the conditions that his team are expected to encounter around the same time next year.

 

Squads:

 

India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Siddarth Kaul, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

 

England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Jake Ball, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Mark Wood.

If England are not completely stupid they should play

1. Buttler

2.Roy

3.Root

4.Hales

5.Morgan

6. Bairstow

7.Stokes

8. Plunkett

9. Wood

10. Rashid

11. Ball

 

Moeen Ali does not deserve a place on merit. Root can always be a 6th bowling option if at all.

trent bridge is one of the bigger grounds. A proper ground if you may will and a stronghold of England in test circket

For a right hander the boundary over cover/square leg (depending on the end) is probably one of the shortest in world cricket.

Oh. This is on tomorrow. Really Can't be arsed with any sport right now. Even cancelled plans to go to Durham to watch Yorkshire on Friday night as I don't feel up to it. A low key county T20 just doesn't cut it after tonight's disappointment and neither does yet another bilateral ODI series. The power of the football world cup. 

 

Enjoy anyway. Might check the score, might not. Won't feel much emotion whatever happens.

this is what i have been waiting for. This ODI series will somewhat give us an indication on how we will do in the WC. Eng definitely looks like the ones that will be the team to beat this time around in ODI 

Not exactly.English bowling is rubbish and I dont they will challenge Dhoni/Raina/Kartik enough to expose their failings if any.And it could bite us back just like CT17 final.

Oh i know bro but they should play that top 7. For some reason England want to play two allrounders in Stokes and Ali. Only 1 of them should ever play. 6 bowling options are too many.

This was their best chance and they blew it. Not sure if they will get any easier path to finals ever again.

It's really fascinating to see passionate fans irrespective of the sport. Hope the cricket world cup will just be as memorable. Tough luck.

out of all the current lot (most team's bowling these days are rubbish - though, pakistan is doing a decent job atm) england seems to be doing the best job all round wise. We would be second. Aus needs to figure out their sh*t with injuries/bans.

Almost the same team as T20 will be played tomorrow. We don't have T20 specialists. We tend to play the same ones. Hope Raina is not played, but KKD is given a chance. Raina was dropped from the ODI squad and was only replacing Biryani Rayudu.

Problem with that is 6th bowler lack thereof. Raina can potentially bowl a couple. I wish Krunal was in

no 6 bowling options are always needed, 5 less  which is our weekness

A 6th bowling option should only be required for one of the main bowlers in case they get injured. They have root for that. England should not be compromising their batting strength for an extra bowler

likes of root, raina, jadhav can max give u 3-4 overs after that they loose control as they are part timers

Someone like Krunal or moeen can give 7-8 overs n if needed 10 

Its also not about injury, conditions have become so batting friendly that most bowlers are bound to have off days

It's just a shame it has to end. The way the whole country was taken over by something I'm actually interested in, unlike crap like Royal Weddings and the Olympics. Cricket unfortunately will never have that effect.

At full strength a 5 to 8 of Stokes, Buttler, Moeen, Woakes is more than good enough in the batting department, especially with Plunkett, Rashid and Willey/Wood to follow. Might as well go with the security of an extra bowling option.

This has never worled out well for England in crunch games or in difficult conditions. Playing Moeen against India could be suicidal if he gets tonked by our batsmen because he is the most likely to fail with the bat.

If moeen will get tonked, imagine how badly will a part timer root get tonked

Moeen atleast will do well against sides who dnt play spin that well like Aus

England may not have stand out bowlers but they sure do have variety - off spinner, wrist spinner, left armer, right arm skiddy quick and right arm hit the deck bowler. Quite a decent attack actually. 

Most(actually all hehe) of them are mediocre.

Umesh Yadav and Siddharth kaul : :nervous:

Hopefully the good UY turns up today.

Lets see whether Siddharth Kaul is really a smart bowler.Because other than that he doesn't seem to have much to offer.

I dont think bowlers will matter much today.Good decision to rest Bhuvi and bat second.Lets see how much our middle order can chase.

They are not world class but i think with the cushion of runs that their batsmen give them, i think they can do a job. 

They allowed India to chase 350 plus from 60 odd for four wickets.

Yes. Most probably run fest. But we have trump cards in wrist spinners. If they too fail then most probably 350+ total to chase. Fast bowlers would be cannon fodder.
