๐ŸIndia vs England: 1st ODI at The Oval - 12 July 2022๐Ÿ


Bairstow, Root and Stokes back in action as England look to avenge T20I series loss

India will keep a close eye on the bowling workload of Hardik Pandya, who is set to play his first ODI in nearly a year.

England have picked Brydon Carse for the ODIs, and the Durham seamer's role could be to fill Liam Plunkett's shoes by bowling hard lengths. Moreover, the hosts also would be bolstered by the return of the star trio - Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Bairstow - to the fold. Meanwhile, India have decided to take an alternative route in limited overs by playing with more freedom. The cast is mostly the same but the theme of the plot seems to have changed a bit. India's new batting blueprint could lead to the occasional crash-landing. But in the longer run, the ramped-up tempo is set to bring in rewards.

There are still a few areas of concern. One of them is Virat Kohli's dip in form. Shreyas Iyer's struggles against the short ball is another. India also would be missing the services of Bhuvuneshwar Kumar, who in turn generated appreciable swing to dismantle England's top-order in the T20Is. In his absence, Mohammed Shami is set to join forces with Jasprit Bumrah. Prasidh Krishna could be the battering ram of the side. Arshdeep Singh's left-arm angle provides another quiver to the fast bowling bow while Hardik Pandya's all-round skills add further depth to the side.

Batsmen can trust the bounce here and play their shots while pacers might get some initial purchase from the pitch.

"50-over cricket is an extension of T20 cricket. You might take slightly fewer risks than you do in T20s, but we have to take risks. It is not as if we won't take risks. We need to get used to playing freely. When you try to play freely, it comes with its failures both in individual performance and in team results, but you get to learn a lot from that. We are looking at the bigger picture, not the small picture. As it is, in India we are used to two-and-a-half-hour pictures. All these matches are crucial for us because somewhere we need to change something, and we can see things have started to change slightly," Rohit Sharma on India's new batting template.

Everything aside from learning about cricket, am still figuring out the team I would cheer for and make it my team since I do not come from a cricket-playing country. smiley36
